MADISON CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL WINS KENTUCKY STATE HIGH SCHOOL FISHING CHAMPIONSHIP ON LAKE CUMBERLAND
MONTICELLO, Ky. (April 14, 2015) – The Madison Central High School team of Logan and Ethan Gabbard brought a five-bass limit to the scale Saturday weighing 18 pounds, 3 ounces to win the 2015 Kentucky State High School Fishing Championship on Lake Cumberland. The win earned the team the title of state champions and qualified the team to compete in a High School Fishing conference championship on Lake Lanier in September.
“We caught most of our fish on a combination of shaky-head rigs and crankbaits today” stated Logan, a senior who is the elder statesman of the brother duo. “We made a 30 minute run toward the dam first thing this morning trying to find a little cleaner water”

The top eight teams to advance to the conference championship were:
  1st:        Madison Central High School – Logan Gabbard and Ethan Gabbard, five bass, 18-3

The top 10 percent from each TBF/FLW state championship field will advance to a High School Fishing conference championship along with the top three teams from each of the seven TBF/FLW High School Fishing Opens held this season. The top 10 percent of each conference championship field will then advance to the High School Fishing National Championship, coinciding with the TBF National Championship and an FLW Tour stop in the spring of 2016. The High School Fishing national champions will each receive a $5,000 college scholarship to the school of their choice.
In addition to the High School Fishing National Championship, all High School Fishing anglers nationwide automatically qualify for the world’s largest high school bass tournament, the 2015 High School Fishing World Finals, held on Pickwick Lake in Florence, Alabama, on July 8-11.
