Saturday March 29, 2014 ~ Shearon Harris ~ Cross Point Landing Wildlife Ramp
1st Place: Mark & Micheal Cummings of Pembroke…5 bass…22.08 lbs

Big fish for the day
Even with a forecast of rough weather coming in, the Boats Unlimited NC Team Tournament Bass Trail
qualifier #3 at Shearon Harris went off without a hitch with 69 teams competing!It was about 54 degrees that
morning and around 68 that afternoon with very light winds. Water temps ranged from 50 to 55 depending on
the area fished.We did have rain off an on but never a big downpour. The winds gusted a few times but were
light for most of the day. In other words, we got lucky even with a little fog trying to hold things up! Actually a
great day for fishing but evidently the front coming thru put a halt to a good bite!
Mark & Michael Cummings, of Pembroke, figured out enough strategy to catch 5 bass weighing 22.08 lbs.
The Cummings team won $1,280 for 1st, TWT 1st place of $1,155 and the Boats Unlimited NC 1st Place Bonus
of $750 for a grand total of $3,185.
The team of Chris & H.T. Eakins took 2nd with 5 bass weighing 20.59 lbs winning $775. Big fish for the day
was a huge 10.66 pounder caught by the team of Drew Johnson & Gill Young worth $966 and 2nd place big fish weighing 8.85 lbs. went to the team of Jesse & Josh Wise winning them $414.
110 fish were weighed in for a total of 352 pounds. Again the slot limit on bass at Harristook it’s toll on guys that caught many fish but were not able to weigh them in. This slot limit is not fair to anglers that practice and spend time and money to fish and get better. People that control the rules should at least give waivers to
tournament trails that have a good ‘Catch and Release’ program. That’s just my 2 cents. We had numerous fish over 7 lbs. and all the fish looked healthy. Hot baits for the day were shakey heads, crankbaits and jerk baits.
I want to thank all the anglers that participated and all our sponsors that support this trail. The next Boats
Unlimited NC Team Tournament Bass Trail tournament will be at Falls Lake on April 12th, out of Ledge Rock
Wildlife Ramp. A Pig-Pickin’ for all participating anglers is planned for this event sponsored by ‘The PropDoc’ www.propdocnc.com in Zebulon (919-632-9928) one of our newest sponsors!
