G. Loomis event set for Cumberland

G. Loomis event set for Cumberland

Bass anglers again have the opportunity to compete against others for more than $13,000 in cash and fishing gear at the annual G. Loomis Skeleton Cup team tournament out of Conley Bottom Resort on Kentucky’s Lake Cumberland. To receive a free entry into the event, both team members must have purchased any G. Loomis rod from participating Kentucky tackle dealers between April 1 through Wednesday, Nov. 13. Along with the $2,300 cash and tackle payout to the winning team, G. Loomis will award cash or tackle down the 20th-place team.

For the past five years, G. Loomis has teamed up with its dealers throughout Kentucky to host the event as a simple thank you to anglers who fish its rods. “It’s become both a fun competitive and social event, and we do make it worthwhile for bass anglers throughout Kentucky and a few neighboring states to join us with the amount of cash and tackle up for grabs,” said Skeleton Cup tournament director Drew Sadler. “Plus, for any of the 6th- through 20th-place teams purchasing and IMX-PRO rod for their entry, we’ll upgrade their rod prizes to the IMX-PRO series.”

Tournament hours on Saturday, Nov. 16 are from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. EST, with check-in starting on the Conley Bottom Resort dock at 6:30 am.

“It will definitely take fall and winter fishing techniques to catch largemouth, smallmouth, and Kentucky spotted bass from Lake Cumberland next weekend,” said Sadler. “The extended forecast is calling for a nice warm-up leading into the Saturday event, and hopefully that will turn on the bass. And for the angler who brings in the biggest bass of the day, they will be awarded a G. Loomis NRX 854C JWR jig and worm rod, valued at $550.”
