Butler County Bassmasters take on Rough River Lake

Danny Cardwell and Chris Phelps took 1st place with 10.78 lbs

Butler County Bassmasters held their fourth tournament of the year at Rough River Lake in Falls of Rough, KY on Saturday, May 11th.  With the recent heavy rains, the lake was 8 ft. above summer pool, which really spread the fish out.  Plenty of fish were caught, but the fluctuating water made it much more difficult to catch keeper sized bass.

Danny Cardwell and Chris Phelps took 1st place with 10.78 lbs, 2nd Garrett Leach and Jimmy Leach 10.40 lbs., 3rd Mike Gary and Zach Gary 9.46 lbs. Big bass of the tournament went to Mike Gary and Zach Gary with a 4.37 lb largemouth.
