Walmart BFL Tournament scheduled for Saturday, May 31, on Barren River Lake

The Walmart Bass Fishing League (Mountain Division) will make its first of two visits to Barren River Lake Saturday, May 31.
The open tournament will takeoff from Port Oliver Recreation Area (next to the dam) at 5:30 a.m., and return to weigh-in at 2 p.m.
Registration will be Friday, May 30, at the Walmart in Glasgow, 4- 6 p.m., with the pre-tournament meeting set for 6:30 p.m. Boater registration is $200, with Co-Angler registration $100.
Prize money (determined by the number of entries) can be up to $6,000 for Boaters and up to $3,000 for Co-Anglers. Big bass for Boaters will be $1,000, and $500 for Co-Anglers.
The bass fishing on Barren River Lake is expected to be good. The fish are likely to be transitioning into their summertime haunts and many anglers will target them on deeper offshore structure and cover. Some competitors might also target fish around the shallow cover in the lake’s upper reaches. Crankbaits, swimbaits, jigs, topwater baits and soft plastics will be popular lure choices. The winner is expected to bring in a five-bass limit weighing about 17 pounds,” according to the Walmart BFL Tournament Preview.
