Summer Camp Details

Held on the beautiful Murray State University campus with daily activities on the shores of Kentucky Lake – the South’s Great Lake, this is one camp you don’t want to miss. Students receive instruction from top professionals and industry executives to take their fishing and fishing career readiness to the next level. 

Adults have the option to drop off their students or stay throughout the camp and participate in special panel discussions aimed at identifying best practices to give your High School Fishing team the edge it needs to thrive. 

One lucky camper will even be selected to fish with a Bass Pro Tour or Tackle Warehouse Pro Circuit pro. Participants in the tournament are eligible for thousands of dollars in cash prizes, with the winner taking home the MLF High School Fishing Cup and a new Jackson Kayak. 

Meet some your favorite MLF pros! Here’s a look at the participating pros and special guest from the 2022 camp!

  • MLF pros: Bobby Lane, Mark Davis, Josh Bertrand, Fletcher Shryock, Joey Cifuentes, Matt Stefan, Terry Bolton, Miles Burghoff, Spencer Shuffield, Bill McDonald, Matt Becker
