The second qualifying event on the Bluegrass Yakmasters tournament trail was in Campbellsville, KY. The beautiful Green River Lake has every fishing opportunity an angler could want. It is known as a quality fishery for crappie, muskie, and hybrid- striped bass, among others, and it has been producing some very quality bass recently. The lake holds healthy populations of largemouth, smallmouth and Kentucky spotted bass.

Many of the participants were able to get out to the lake to pre-fish on Friday. Some really nice fish were caught, including a personal best largemouth by Cameron Debity that was just shy of 22”. There were multiple other fish caught on Friday over 19” and anglers were ready for some big three-fish limits for the tournament. However, with the rain and changing conditions, things were a little different on Saturday.

There were a total of twenty nine participants that made the trip despite a wet forecast. Although there was a little rain at the check in, anglers were able to stay mostly dry throughout the day. The front that pushed through Friday night seemed to slow the bite down for most of the field, but some anglers were able to put together a good day and produce some of the largest totals yet!

The top ten finishers and their totals:
1st- AJ McWhorter, 52.5” With 19.75” Big Fish
2nd- Drew Russel, 51.75”
3rd- Bob Brown, 49.75”
4th- Matt Schaefer, 46.5”
5th - TJ Strong, 45.75”
6th - Jay Wallen, 44.25”
7th - Jason Ransdell, 42”
8th - Andrew Wolfe, 42”
9th – Randy Collins, 38.5”
10th – Cameron Debity, 31”

The Bluegrass Yakmasters would like to thank everyone who made it out to this event. We would also like to invite everyone to our next event, June 8 on Elkhorn Creek. It is not too late to join the club and fish with us through the season. Anglers only need participation in five events to qualify to fish in the two-day classic on Cedar Creek Lake this fall. Come join us for a summer day on an amazing body of water. The creek has had a great flow all season and the fishing is always great. It will be open to public waters on the North Fork, South Fork and the Main Stem of Elkhorn Creek, and will be hosted by Canoe KY.
