Cory and Meagan York Take the D8 Season Opener Win

The Bass Pro Shops Couples Tour, Kentucky Lake Division completed their first tournament of the 2020 season this Sunday.  It was also the first fall tournament we have ever scheduled.  It was a very light turnout with only 8 teams participating.  We had a two-hour delay due to extremely foggy conditions.  However, once that fog cleared the weather was nearly perfect.  We launched from the Lake Barkley State Park ramp at 8:30 AM and weighed in at 3:30 PM.  A lot of short fish were reported caught, but the keepers came tough for most.  A total of 10 bass were brought to the scales for a combined weight of 30.84 pounds.   We paid out a total of $680 including Men’s and Ladies Big Bass pots.

Cory and Meagan York scorched the field with a 5 bass limit mixed with largemouth and smallmouth weighing 18.33 pounds.  The Yorks made a very long run to Kentucky Lake where they threw topwater baits all day on main lake and secondary points.  The couple said the key to their bite today was simple, cover as much water as possible.  Cory took Men’s Big Fish honors with a 4.49 largemouth, while Meagan contributed a nice 3.31 largemouth to cover the ladies field for big fish.  For this extraordinary performance, the young couple took home $440. 
 
Jay and Shari Holsapple took 2nd place with 3 very nice fish tipping the scales at 7.04 pounds.  The Holsapples fished secondary points all day using plastics.  Their catch was anchored by Shari’s 2.62-pound largemouth.  The Holsapples took home $240 for their efforts
.     
Bob and Cindy Linton took third place.  They brought 1 nice smallmouth to the scales weighing 3.12 pounds.  Bob and Cindy fished shallow bays with bladed baits for the day.

Gary and Dana Martin grabbed the 4th spot with 1 bass weighing 2.35-lbs.
  
The remainder of us all tied for 5th place with no fish!  Buddy and Natasha Hopkins did receive a nice RTIC Tumbler in the number draw at the weigh-in.

I need to give a special thank you to DUCKETT FISHING.  They have been extremely supportive of our division in the past and have committed to continue that support into the future.  They have some outstanding products, rods reels, baits, and apparel.  Everyone should contact them and express your gratitude.

Also, a big thank you The Cabin Bait and Tackle shop in Kuttawa for committing to supporting our series.  Please stop in and visit their shop.  It is always filled with great products, including Duckett Rods.  Let Jordan and Melissa know we appreciate their support.

We also have a new local supporting business, Castin’ Nets in Eddyville.  This young couple is just getting their business started and have pledged support for our series.  Please give them a visit.  They have some outstanding prices on great products.

Our next tournament is scheduled for November 3, 2019 at the Paris Landing ramp.  This is the day our time will fall back an hour.  Everyone should be well rested with the extra hour of sleep and ready to go at 6:00 AM.  We will weigh-in at 2:00 PM

Tom and Missy take the win and the GLine Battery $100 Bounty on Cooper River

We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day on the Cooper River with mild temperatures and sunny skies!  We had eight teams come out to compete with every team bringing fish to the scales.  Several teams commented on how clear the water was and how many big bass they watched swimming but couldn’t get to bite.  It seems that the most productive bite was on crank baits and worms.  

Tom and Missy Bancroft took First Place with 5 largemouth bass weighing 8.15 lbs. earning $360.  We caught our bass on crankbaits in the morning and shaky head worms in the afternoon.
