High school teams throughout western Kentucky including Trigg County, Calloway County, Murray High School, Marshall County, Lyon County, Muhlenberg County, and Warren East all gathered on Lake Barkley to see which high school team could catch the best five fish limit of bass. In all, 28 boats (teams) from those seven schools competed last Saturday with the top 14 teams advancing to the state championship, which is to be held on Kentucky Lake on April 26 – 27 at Kenlake Marina.
The TCHS Fishing Team had three teams qualify for the state championship, including having the region runners-up in Mason Shelton and Austin Green, and Big Bass Award with Adam Fitch’s 6 lb. 7oz largemouth.
“We caught our four fish on four different baits and on four different types of structure,” Shelton said on the weigh-in stage. “We just fished hard all day and were lucky to get some bites.”
