CASHION FISHING RODS SPRING TEAM TOURNAMENT BASS TRAIL FINAL QUALIFIER #5
Saturday April 15th, 2017 ~ ~ Falls Lake ~ ~ Ledge Rock Wildlife Ramp
Qualifier #5 at Falls Lake. The April weather was great with winds very light in the am and up to 10 mph in the
afternoon, the air temps ranged from 60 to 80 and the water level was about normal. Surface water temps averaged 70
degrees and the water was a little dingy on the I-85 end but clearer towards the dam. The bite was not really that great
with the main reasons being high pressure, huge shad spawn, huge carp spawn and bass spawning also. It should all be
over in the next few weeks hopefully!
The veteran team of Billy Bledsoe & Brian McDonald weighed in 5 nice bass weighing a total of 21.83 lbs to take 1st
Place and 1st Place TWT for a total of $2,050 in winnings! The team will also be collecting $3,000 from Skeeter boats
and over $100 from TH Marine in Contingency awards!!
The 2nd Place team of Jaime Fajardo & Josh Hooks caught 5 bass weighing 20.15 lbs. and took home $594 in
winnings. The 3rd Place team of Matt Harrison & Angela Bishop brought to the scales 5 bass weighing 19.31 lbs.
taking home $510 in winnings. Big fish for the day was caught by Bobby Matthews of Durham (6.28 lbs.) worth $530 !!
Only 108 bass were brought to the scales for a total of 291 pounds averaging 2.70 lbs. each which is way off for Falls
Lake! It's just that time of year. Spinnerbaits, jig & pigs, chatterbaits and small crankbaits in the more shallow water
again seemed to be the lures of choice.
I want to thank Cashion Fishing Rods and all the anglers that participated. The Cashion Fishing Rods Spring Bass
Trail Championship will be held June 10th at Falls for those teams that qualified. Our next tournament will be the 2017
Piedmont Bass Classics $10,000 Spring Team Bass Trail Qualifier #4 , Saturday April 22nd at Kerr Lake out of
