Jay and Shari Holsapple Take Couples win on Kentucky Lake

It was one tough day on Kentucky Lake, May 20, 2018 for the ABA Couples Series. Seventeen very good teams worked hard to overcome the slow bite this day.  The water temperature was in the high 70s to low 80s.  The air temperature reached 90. The bass were in a cranky (no pun intended) mood.  They were in transition from the spawn to their summer pattern and the results were actually shocking.  This was not your typical late May bite for this great lake.  Of the seventeen boats, ten weighed in a total of only 14 bass for 45.01 pounds, all released alive and well to battle us another day.  We paid out four places for a total of $1,445, including big bass for both men and ladies.

Cory and Meagan York mastered the conditions, the lake and the field with a runaway victory.  They had the only 5 bass limit weighing 19.76 pounds.  Their catch was anchored by a 6.42 largemouth.  The Yorks only had 7 bites all day fishing swimbaits and rattletraps primarily on main lake points.  Cory and Meagan took home a well-earned $550 for their day’s work.
