Bradley Roy Hosts 1st Annual High School Open  

Stanford, KY - Today high school anglers from across the state of Kentucky participated in the first annual Bradley Roy High School Open Bass Tournament. 21 teams coached by their boat captains plied the waters of Cedar Creek Lake competing for prizes and 2 berths in the 2014 Bassmaster High School National Championship.
Cedar Creek Lake is managed by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources as a big fish lake, maintaining a 20” size limit. Several bass were caught just under the limit so the results came down to the number of 12” and larger bass caught. The winners were Matt Brown and Jeremy Elliott from Corbin High School in Corbin, KY with 8 fish. The runners- up were Corey Skaggs and Tyler Bohannon from the Jefferson County High School Club in Louisville, KY with 4 fish. Brown/Elliot caught their fish on wacky-rigged stick baits and Skaggs/Bohannon caught their fish using several different methods.

Roy’s involvement with high school fishing is a natural fit given his status as the youngest angler competing in the Elite Series. “I have worked with a few high school teams in recent year, and I have access to resources to put on a tournament. So I thought the open would be a good way to promote high school fishing."
