Not only will next spring’s high school bass fishing Illinois state championship series feature a new regional round and a new structure, it also will crown a new champion on a new lake.
Lake Shelbyville is about to step into the spotlight.
After years of discussion by the Illinois High School Association’s Bass Fishing Advisory Committee, the IHSA Board of Directors signed off on moving the finals from Carlyle Lake, where it has been held since the ground breaking series launched in 2009.
