The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency took tiny fin clip samples from Kentucky Lake bass to conduct DNA analysis in an evaluation of Florida bass stocking. This tiny tissue sample will tell TWRA biologists if this 7-pounder had Florida genes. Photos by Gene Gilliland
DOVER, Tenn. — McKendree University admittedly is playing its strengths on Lake Barkley and the strategy is proving beneficial at the Carhartt College Wild Card presented by Bass Pro Shops. Leading the tournament with 15 pounds, 14 ounces, is the team of Jordan Ledbetter and Trent Robinson. Less than one pound behind in second place are fellow students Phillip Germaglioti and Shane Campbell, also of McKendree University.
