LEXINGTON, Ky. —The sixth-annual KHSAA State Bass Fishing Championship will begin Friday morning at the Kentucky Dam Marina when 80 teams compete for the 2018 state title. The two-day KHSAA State Bass Fishing Championship (May 11-12), with Calvert City serving as official host city, begins each morning with the boat launch from Kentucky Dam Marina at 7 a.m. The teams will launch in three flights, with a staggered return to the dock for weigh-ins. The launch order will then be reversed for the second day of the competition.

Teams will start returning to the marina at 3 p.m. each day, with the weigh-ins scheduled to begin at approximately 3:30 p.m. Awards will be presented following day two’s weigh-in to the top four teams along with the big bass award and the Midway University/KHSAA Female Student-Athlete of the Year award.

In 2017, Muhlenberg County’s Taylor Harris and Braxten Beasley captured the state title after setting KHSAA records for single-day weight (21 lbs., 14 oz.) and two-day total (38 lbs., 10 oz.).
