Fish Weight: 8.2 lbs
Where Caught: Kentucky Lake
Date Caught:  2/10/17

Participating Holding Facility: Fisherman's Headquarters

Austin Gruner with his 8.2 lb largemouth bass caught at Kentucky Lake. The first fish of the 2017 season and the first fish from western Kentucky.

  This program would not exist without the help of our local bait shops. Michael’s fish was held overnight by staff at Prichard’s Outdoor Shop in Grayson, KY. Make sure you visit Prichard’s Outdoor Shop when fishing Grayson, Greenbo and other lakes.


A big thank you to Fisherman’s Headquarters located in Benton, KY for holding Austin’s fish over the weekend until our Transportation staff could pick it up.
