531-141st1st Place: Todd & Chris Massey of Chapel Hill & Siler City…5 bass…22.23 lbs

     The Boats Unlimited NC Team Tournament Bass Trail Final Qualifier #7 proved that Jordan Lake is not the ‘Dead Sea’ as some local anglers call it. These guys just know how to catch fish! Nearly all 58 teams caught fish! We had a beautiful day with light & variable winds. It was about 62 degrees that morning and around 79  that afternoon. Water temps averaged around 79 degrees depending on the area fished. The lake level had  been dropping drastically, but maintained at about normal level this day! The fishing seemed to be super that morning with a lot of teams reporting limits by 8am. Most were caught shallow to 8′ off the banks, points and  bottom structure. The post spawn bass seemed to be biting all lures today with plastics coming on strong! 230  fish were weighed in for a total of 745 pounds. We had numerous fish over 5 lbs. and all the fish looked really
      Todd Massey and his son Chris (subbing for Brandon Gray) took 1st place honors with a nice bag of 5 bass  weighing 22.23 lbs.! The also took 1st Place TWT, 1st Place Tow Boats US Bonus and 1st Place Boats
Unlimited NC Bonus for a nice cash total of $2,770!!
Todd also will get an additional $500 compliments of Triton Boats for being in the Triton Gold program!
     Drew Johnson & Gill Young took 2nd with 5 bass weighing 21.32 lbs winning $605. 3rd Place went to Jim Nichols & Jeremy Martin with 5 weighing 21.14 lbs. They also won 2nd TWT and 1st Place Big Fish (7.04 lbs.)
for a total of $1,685.
