Harry Barber Sr. of Earlington, KY won the Kentucky division Weekend Bass Series on Lake Barkley out of Barkley State Park on April 5, 2014.   Harry brought 17.75lb to the scales to win $1931.  “I caught them on secondary points with a Red Eye Shad”, he said.  

Second place went to Tim Collier of Paducah, KY.  Tim caught his 17.50lb bag with a flappin’ hawg on a shakey head in five feet of water. 

Third place went to Brent Anderson of Kingston Springs, KY for bringing in 17.40lb. Brent simply said, “I caught mine on a Red Eye Shad a long way from here”.  Big Bass for the boater side was a 5.30lb bass caught by Ronnie Webb of Dyersburg, TN.  He caught it on a Red Eye Shad.

The co-angler champion was David Carroll of Manitou, KY with an 11.95lb sack of bass worth $966.  David said, “I caught my big fish on a spinnerbait with a big pepper blade and a firetiger skirt”.  “I caught the rest of them on a little jig with a craw tail” he said. 

Kelvin “Burger” Young of Murray, KY finished second with 11.53lb.  Kelvin caught his bag flipping a green pumpkin trick worm. 

Jo Jo Walsh of Bon Aqua, TN rounded out the top three with 9.92lb that he caught cranking rocks with a Bandit.  Grant Davis of Franklin, TN had a 6.82lb bass for Big Bass honors.  Grant caught his fish on a Livingston Lures bait, but did not tell which one, only that he bought the bait at the registration meeting the night before.
