Wiley X High School Fishing Camp Registration 

Major League Fishing is proud to join with Wiley X and Tackle Warehouse for the return of our popular High School Fishing Camp. It has been a long time coming, and we are anxious to get back together with our high school friends from around the country. As always, this is the ultimate summer camp for serious high school anglers, their parents, boat captains and coaches. 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. 

Camp starts Wednesday, June 9, and concludes Friday, June 11, followed by an MLF Foundation benefit tournament held in conjunction with a Phoenix Bass Fishing League presented by T-H Marine tournament Saturday, June 12, for campers who would like to put their newfound skills to the test while helping raise money for the foundation’s High School Fishing scholarship fund. 

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. 

All camp activities will follow Covid-19 mitigation guidelines in place at the time of camp, including social distancing and mask wearing during camp activities, most of which are held outside. 

The camp fee is $300 per student/adult. The tournament entry fee is $100 per boat.
