                              CASHION FISHING RODS 'FALLS LAKE OPEN'
                            Falls Lake~~MaY 21, 2016 Ledge Rock Wildlife Ramp

Matt Cashion, owner of Cashion Fishing Rods, sponsored the 'Falls Lake Open, with 30 teams showing up, even
with the weather forecast calling for heavy rains in the am. The day started off in the low 60's and afternoon
temps around 79. It did rain hard from about 5am to 6am then quit for the day!! The winds were 0 to 12 mph for
the most of the day and the water level was right at normal pool.  Water temps averaged 72 degrees and the
water clarity was fairly good. 120 bass were weighed in for a total weight of 378 pounds for an average of 3.15
lbs. each. The fish have pretty much spawned out and are starting to work their way back to deeper water. It was
really a pretty day for bass fishing with a lot of 4 and 5 pounders caught!!!

Chadd Eriksen & Cullen Ports weighed in 5 bass at 25.03 lbs to take 1st Place, 1st Place TWT & Big Fish Award
(7.40 lbs.) plus awarded with 2 Cashion Custom Rods & Trophies for a grand total of $2,350 in cash and prizes!

Losing to 1st Place by only .23 of a pound was the 2nd Place team of Robyn Cook & Owen Penhollow with 5 bass
weighing 24.80 lbs. They also won the 2nd place Big Fish Award (6.46 lbs.) and 2 Cashion Custom Rods. Their
best finish ever with PBC taking home a total of $1,250 in cash and prizes. 3rd Place money and 2 Cashion Rods
went to the team of  Matt Harrison & Angela Bishop with 5 bass weighing 20.97 lbs. netting them $900 in cash
and prizes!!

Most bass were caught with crankbaits, spinnerbaits, chatterbaits, WLS Shakey Heads and Carolina Rigs. Most
were caught in 10' or less waters. The topwater bite should be picking up with the summer temps coming in.
