Kentucky Lake
The Lady Bass Anglers Association will bring the third stop on the season to Kentucky Lake for the 2018 Wildcard event. Kentucky Lake is the mainstream reservior of the Tennessee river. The dam backs up about 160,000 acres of water making it the largest of the Tennessee Valley Authority reserviors. The companion body of water is Lake Barkley which impounds 118 miles of the Cumberland river. These two bodies of water are connected by a channel near the dams of each reservior. Both bodies of water will provide the LBAA  anglers with plenty of opportunities to bring in bigs sacks of fish each day. Entry fees are $500 for Pros and $250 for Co-Anglers. The last day to pay an entry fee to avoid a late penatly is May 22, 2018.
The state record fish for the state of Kentucky are 13 lbs 10.4 ounces for largemouth,11 lbs 15 ounces for smallmouth, which is also a world record and 7 lbs and 10 ounces for spotted bass. This two day pro/am event will have pro-anglers competing to bring in the heaviest 5 fish limit comprised of any combination of largemouth, or spotted bass. Co-anglers are looking for the same species but only need 3 fish for a bag limit each day.
The angler in each division with the largest combined two day weight will be awarded the top cash prize for her division. One angler in each division will also be awarded a  prize for the biggest bass of the tournament. Cash payouts in each division will be paid to every 1 in  5 anglers registering for the tournament.
