Walmart Bass Fishing League LBL Division To Host Event On Kentucky/Barkley Lakes

High water level could pose challenge

HARDIN, Ky. (May 4, 2011) – The Walmart Bass Fishing League is headed to Kentucky/Barkley lakes May 14 for the fourth of five stops in the LBL Division. As many as 400 boaters and co-anglers will be competing for top awards up to $9,500 and $3,000, respectively.

“They’re biting if you can get to them,” said Prevacid 24 Hour pro Dan Morehead of Paducah, Ky. “It’s more of a game of hunting right now rather than fishing. The lake is 14 feet above pool and there’s so much water in the woods and timber you can’t get to the bank.”

Morehead said anglers will need to use caution during the tournament because of hidden obstacles that are not visible because of the high water level, but the anglers who do find fish will be able to catch them.

“If it was me I’d be power fishing,” Morehead said. “You can catch them flipping right now, but you can’t cover enough water. I’d just use a spinnerbait or chatterbait and cover a lot of water.”

Takeoffs and weigh-ins will be at Kenlake Marina located at 888 Kenlake Marina Ln. in Hardin, Tenn. Takeoff is scheduled for 5:30 a.m. while weigh-in will begin at 1:30 p.m. Takeoffs and weigh-ins are free and open to the public.

The Kentucky/Barkley lakes BFL tournament is being hosted by the Marshall County Tourist Commission.

The BFL is a 24-division circuit devoted to weekend anglers, offering bigger prizes to those who qualify for regional championships and those who make it to one of the longest-running championships in all of competitive bass fishing – the Walmart BFL All-American presented by Chevy. Top winners in the BFL can move up to the EverStart Series or even the Walmart FLW Tour.
