Marshall County Wins Froggyland Classic Open on KY Lake
Calloway County High School hosted its annual Froggyland Classic High School Open on March 1, 2014, out of Fenton access ramp on Kentucky Lake. The pre-spawn bite of March on the ‘Big K’ can get downright ugly and has produced multiple hefty tournament stringers over the past few years, but the brutal winter experienced across the southeast has water temperatures remaining in the mid-40s- and bass a little sluggish. Despite what most locals would consider a tough KY Lake bite, the Marshall County High School sophomore duo of Flint Lovett and Colton Story brought 14 lbs, 15 oz., to the scales for their first high school open win. Lovett and Story primarily fished lipless crankbaits along lead in banks in 6 to 10 feet of water to bag their winning catch. The 2014 high school fishing season is in full swing in the state of Kentucky as anglers vie for a spot in their respective Kentucky High School Athletic Association (KHSAA) regional tournament – and ultimately a shot at being crowned Kentucky’s second ever state champions at the KHSAA State Tournament on April 25-26, 2014, out of Kentucky Dam Marina in Gilbertsville, KY.
