Takeoff Thurday morning at Kentucky Lake Dam Village Marina for the FLW Tour event on Kentucky and Barkley lakes

GILBERTSVILLE, Ky. - National Guard FLW College Fishing is headed to Kentucky/Barkley lakes May 2 for the second of four stops in the Central Conference. Forty college teams will be competing for a top award of $5,000 and a berth in the Central Conference Championship tournament.

"You are going to see some pretty big weights at this tournament," said FLW pro Kevin Snider of Elizabethtown, Ky. "It's probably going to take 20 to 22 pounds to win. We have had a pretty early spring; typically the bass don't start spawning until late May or early June, but the bass are about a month ahead of schedule. I am guessing that most of them have spawned out and are going to be stacked up on ledges.

"The Alabama rig is going to work in this tournament," Snider went on to say. "But it won't be the only thing that works. Fishing shallow ledges with crankbaits, jigs and worms always produce. The key to winning is really going to be finding multiple schools of big fish."

Anglers will take off from Moors Resort & Marina located at 570 Moors Road in Gilbertsville, Ky., at 6:30 a.m. Saturday. Weigh-in will also be at the marina beginning at 12:30 p.m. Takeoff and weigh-in are free and open to the public.
