Corbin has successful day on Lake Cumberland

CORBIN —  

By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

SOMERSET — The Corbin Redhound fishing team turned in an impressive showing while participating in the Lake Cumberland Tournament.

The Redhound fishing team had to fight some tough weather conditions during the Rockcastle County High School-hosted event on Saturday.

“This was a hard tournament to fish,” Corbin coach Mike Ball said. “The wind was gusting upwards of 28 miles per hour and the water was stained from recent rains, but the kids toughed it out and caught some nice fish. It just goes to show you how much they love this sport. They spent eight tough hours on the lake and were still smiling and joking at the weigh in.

“The thing that has amazed me the most about starting this team is the amount of community support that is out there,” he added. “We have over 20 different local companies that have donated money, merchandise or time to this team, (companies like Kentucky Outdoorsman, Dave's Outdoor World, Hometown Bank and Holly Bay Marina) and we are just getting started,” he added. “Couple this with the hard work of the parents and the support of school district and this season has already been a huge success.”

Corbin’s Matt Brown and Dylan Adams turned in a second place effort with nine pounds and four ounces while Marcus Davis and Waylon Hurst placed third with seven pounds and six ounces.

The Big Fish Trophy went to Morgan Boggs and Tanner Jordan by catching a 4.5 pound small-mouth bass.
