Saturday May 6th, 2017 ~ Jordan Lake ~ Farrington Point Wildlife Ramp
Well, the weatherman kinda missed it for the morning checkin and blastoff, but the day ended nicely! 20 teams
fought the early cold wind and rain and around 10am it got better even though the wind still blew steady at about
10 mph. Jordan had been drawn down to about 220, so it was a little high but good for fishing this time of year.
Surface temps ranged from 68 to 73 and air temps topped out at about 69. A right nice day all in all.
Cody Shuffler (on left) & Chuck Ward took top honors with 5 bass weighing 17.86 lbs. The also won the
Tournament Within A Tournament (TWT) and caught the big bass for the day (6.43 lbs.) for a winning total of
Second Place went to Josh Hooks and T.J. Smith. They caught 5 bass weighing 16.23 lbs. and got $430 for their
work! Jesse Wise, fishing alone, took 3rd place with 15.38 lbs. and took home $275 in cash. 4th Place was won
by Manny Lenau, also fishing alone, with 5 at 14.72 lbs. and he won $175.
52 fish were weighed in for a total of 156 pounds for an average of 3.00 lbs. each. Most of the fish were caught
flipping worm rigs or Creature Bait Jig Combos or casting chatterbaits and swimbaits in anywhere from 2 to 10
feet of water in cove pockets around cover. It was tough fishing due to the weather situation, dropping water
and plenty of regular food for the bass due to the shad spawn. Some bass are still on the bed, so it's still tough
fishing right now.
