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.
