Cabela’s Collegiate Big Bass Bash presented by Berkley Headed Back to Kentucky Lake in 2018

The Cabela’s Collegiate Bass Fishing Series is proud to announce after a record turn out in 2017, the Cabela’s Collegiate Big Bass Bash presented by Berkley will be returning to Kentucky Lake and Paris, Tennessee in March 2018.
 “Henry County is excited to again host the Cabela’s Collegiate Big Bass Bash on Kentucky Lake.  We look forward to this event every year and enjoy watching these young adults representing colleges from all over the nation enjoying the outdoors,” said David Hamilton, CEO of the Paris, Tennessee Chamber of Commerce.
This event has turned into one of the biggest events in all of collegiate fishing. In 2017, with over 500 anglers from 84 schools from across the nation competing, this was the largest event in the history of the Cabela’s Collegiate Bass Fishing Series.  Over $30,000 in prizes were awarded to the anglers in 2017, and 2018 is expected to be bigger and better on all fronts.
“We look forward to going to Paris Landing and Kentucky Lake every year because this is one of those lakes that is just absolutely incredible when it comes to largemouth and smallmouth fishing,” said Wade Middleton, Director of the Association of Collegiate Anglers and President of CarecoTV.   “In the big bass format where even a two pound fish can earn a check, anglers have the chance to win in eight possible weigh-ins and just one cast can win the whole event and the college anglers know that, therefore they travel from many states to fish this event.”
So mark your calendar this year for March 9-11, 2018 for the Cabela’s Collegiate Big Bass Bash at Kentucky Lake’s Paris Landing!
