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.

MLF Foundation Benefit Tournament
The annual MLF Foundation benefit tournament raises funds for youth fishing programs and High School Fishing grants benefiting students nationwide.
The tournament will be held June 12 on Kentucky Lake out of Moors Marina. Onsite registration and the pretournament meeting will be held the evening of June 11 at Murray State University.
The entry fee is $100 per boat. Each boat may have up to three participants assigned.
The winner of the boat division will receive $1,000 and a Jackson Kayak. Second place is $500, and third place is $250. Additionally, boat division teams may enter categories to win an extra $500 per selection as the highest finisher in that category. The cost is $50 per category.
You may enter as many categories as you like, but a category only becomes active once at least 10 participants have registered for it. If the category does not become active, you will receive a refund for that category at registration.
Participation in the MLF Foundation tournament is open to everyone, including middle school and elementary school students accompanied by an adult. You do not have to participate in the Wiley X High School Fishing Camp to fish the tournament. You must supply your own boat to compete.
