      The weatherman was calling for a disaster for the Cashion Fishing Rods ‘End of Year’ Team Tournament Bass  Fishing Trail Championship, but as usual he was a little off, thank goodness! Air temps ranged from 44 in the am  to 53 in the pm. We had off and on rain but not by any means a washout for the 23 qualified team. The wind was the big factor. It blew constant at 10 to 15 mph with gusts up to 25 at times and as usual at weighin time it quit.  Water temps averaged 63 degrees. As usual in the Fall, the fish were scattered with most caught in 8 to 15′ of
water with spinnerbaits & jigs. Others were caught using crankbaits, spoons, jerk baits & worm combos in deeper  water. It was a tough fishing day….but we got some tough fishermen & women!!!

     Tournament veterans Ron Szaro & Brian Lipscomb finally hit on the right pattern and netted 5 bass weighing a  total of 15.09 lbs. taking 1st Place worth 2 custom Cashion Fishing Rods, Trophies & $1,930 in cash, their 1st  victory for the year! 
     The 2nd Place Team of Joe Langley & Brian Fritts hooked 4 bass weighing 12.07 lbs. They
also won the 2nd Place Big Fish (5.05) and took home $958. 

Big Fish for the day was caught by the team of Thomas Sheffer & Ken McNeill weighing 5.24 lbs. Sheffer & McNeill also were awarded the Title of Points Champions and were awarded 2 custom Cashion Fishing Rods, Trophies & $590 in cash!!!
     2nd place team member Brian Fritts won the Tow Boats US Member Championship Award of $100. Only 50 bass were weighed in for a total of 129 pounds. This averaged 2.58 lbs. a fish and they were nice and healthy looking and feedin’ up for the Winter!
After the weighin all the anglers were treated to a great meal of chicken, BarBQ and all the fixins’ compliments  of Tow Boats US based in Morehead City, NC!!! Thank you Tow Boats US…it was mighty fine eatin’.
We had a great turnout for the Cashion Fishing Rods ‘EOY’ trail averaging 29 boats in each qualifier! I want to  thank all the anglers that participated and all our sponsors that support these trails. Our next tournament will be
