Chris & H.T. Eakins Win Piedmont Bass Classic $10,000 Spring Team Bass Trail Qualifier #5 April 25th 2015


Saturday April 25th, 2015 ~ Kerr Lake ~ Flemingtown Landing Wildlife Ramp


Another huge turnout for the PBC Qualifer #5 at Kerr Lake. Temps in the am were around 44 and up to about 64 in the afternoon and winds were 5 to 10. Water temps averaged 65. Out of the 86 teams that fished 61 caught their limits of 5. It was a great day for fishing with cloudy skies and light rain. Chris & H.T. Eakins topped the tightly contested weights coming in with 5 bass weighing 18.71 lbs. and won the 2nd Place Big Fish (5.35 lbs.) earning them a total of $1,955 in prize money! Ernest Warren took 2nd place with 5 weighing 17.97 lbs and pocketed $845. Other big winners were the tied 3rd place & 1st Place TWT team of Glenn Elliott & Stump Bledsoe who picked up $2,027. The 8th place team of Troy Horne & Daryl Peele also won the 1st Place Big Fish Award and took home $1,509 in prize money!!! The prize money, again, got spread around giving quite a few teams a nice payday!!!
349 fish were weighed in for a total of 917 pounds for an average of 2.63 lbs. each. The water was up at Kerr(302), the water was in the bushes and the bite was fantastic! Most of the fish were caught flipping plastics & jig combos. The bass were hitting about anything!! Spinnerbaits, crankbaits & chatterbaits also loaded the livewells.
I want to thank all the anglers that participated and all our sponsors that support this trail.
Coming up May 9th will be the Piedmont Bass Classics $10,000 Spring Team Bass Trail Qualifier #6 at Jordan
