    Bass Fishing Championship begins Friday at Kentucky Dam Marina

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: May 9, 2019

    The seventh-annual KHSAA State Bass Fishing Championship begins Friday morning at the Kentucky Dam Marina when 90 teams compete for the 2019 state title. The 90 boats competing at this year’s state championship marks an increase in participation for the second consecutive year, as the qualifying field was previously expanded from its original 64 boats to 80 in 2018, and is reflective of continued growth in the sport-activity of Bass Fishing.

    The two-day KHSAA State Bass Fishing Championship (May 10-11), with Calvert City serving as official host city, begins each morning with the boat launch from Kentucky Dam Marina at 7 a.m. The teams will launch in three flights, with a staggered return to the dock for weigh-ins. The launch order will then be reversed for the second day of the competition.

    Teams will start returning to the marina at 3 p.m. each day, with the weigh-ins scheduled to begin at approximately 3:30 p.m. Awards will be presented following day two’s weigh-in to the top four teams along with the big bass award. Official championship photos will be available at KHSAA.org following the event.

    I love this event, just wish it would move around the state. It's a definite home "Water" advantage for WKY teams.

    I wish competitive bass fishing was around when I was in high school. I'm happy for the kids that get to participate now. Good luck and tight lines to these young men & women.
