Segracy & Shelton Claim Victory on Lake Cumberland in KHSAA Region 2

One hundred and sixteen high school teams converged on Lake Cumberland at Holcomb’s Landing for the KHSAA Region 2 qualifying event.  It was a perfect weekend with beautiful weather, warming temperatures and active bites as fish were on the move preparing to spawn.  A total of 529lbs of fish were weighed and 25 teams brought five fish limits to the scales.

Trevor Segracy & Michael Shelton from the Washington County Bass Commanders took top honors as their limit of bass topped the scales at 16.08lbs.  During practice, they caught most of their fish using a spinnerbait in the back of Beaver Creek.  But, on Saturday when the bite fell off and was slow to non-existent the team decided to start throwing a jig. Almost immediately, a keeper was caught and a few minutes later they landed another using a jig in the Cumberland Craw color.  The decision played out well as the team caught enough keepers to claim the victory.

Will O’Rourke & Clay Evans from Trinity High School finished second with a solid limit weighing 14.10lbs.  The team caught most of their fish using a drop shot rig around rocky banks in about 5-10ft of water.

The big bass of the event was caught by Katie Marshall & Grant Wyatt of Franklin County High School.  Grant caught the 4.14lb beauty on a square billed crankbait.

The Top 16 teams of this event advance to the KHSAA State Championship May 13-14 on Kentucky Lake at KY Dam Village State Park.
