Second place starting fast

The 2nd place duo of Gavin Gordon and Shawn Burkhart of nearby Henry County High School started fast this morning with 2 solid keepers and one bonafide big one. They didn't catch those on their first stop though as they idled five spots before standing on the front deck.

Their boat captain Jake Lawrence is a college alumn and fished at nearby Bethel University multiple years ago. He said they weren't going to stop and fish unless the boys liked what they saw on the graph when they idled over their offshore spots.

The first spot yielded a couple and now they are off to another spot. They started the day with 22-11 and were 1-1 off the leaders pace.

Crowning a champion

The Final Day of the Costa Bassmaster High School National Championship presented by DICK'S Sporting Goods is ready to roll on Kentucky Lake. With Day 2 being cancelled due to weather in the area, the full field will fish today and we will crown a champion at Paris Landing State Park.

Coast is clear

Other than a little bit of rain tonight, the wind is non-existent and the storms have passed. The lake looks good to go for the full field on Championship Saturday early on Saturday morning. With 13 teams busting over 20 pounds on Day 1 and the Top 50 sitting at 15-11 and up, it looks like we will have a shootout on our hands.

Making the best of the off time.

High School Championship: Day 2 postponed

After extensive consultation with the National Weather Service, Day 2 will be postponed until Saturday, June 24.

The decisions is based on forecast models and an elevated severe weather threat from the Storm Prediction Center.

Rain is predicted to start in the early morning hours. By 9 a.m., new storms that are predicted to be severe are expected to move through the area, perhaps bringing hail, tornadoes and straight-line winds. Weather forecasters are also calling for up to 5 inches of rain and localized flooding. Storms are forecast to continue until early evening. The storms should be out of here by tomorrow evening with a beautiful day on Saturday.

The full field will go out on Saturday at 5:30 a.m. Weigh-in will take place at Paris Landing State Park and we will crown a champion on Saturday.
