“We are excited to host the Cabela’s Big Bass Bash on beautiful Kentucky Lake,” stated David Hamilton, CEO, Henry County Tourism Authority.  “We always enjoy it when we see young men and women enjoying the outdoors and especially fishing on Kentucky Lake,” Hamilton added.

The Cabela’s Collegiate Big Bass Bash presented by Berkley format is a fan-favorite which allows anglers to weigh in their catches during the four daily sessions each day.   There will be a total of 80 places paid during the event featuring a variety of prizes for the best fish caught during the days action.

In addition to all the prizes on the line, this will also be a double points event for the Cabela’s School of the Year race and you can expect to see some of the top college anglers in the nation on the water during the week.

“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.

With many students on spring break around that time of the year, you can’t find a better place to spend your time on the water – even if’s a cold day on-the-water – with a great chance to win prizes. So, mark your calendar this year for March 8-10, 2019 for the Cabela’s Collegiate Big Bass Bash presented by Berkley at Kentucky Lake’s Paris Landing!
