Out of the 34 teams that qualified, 32 showed up to try and win the Cashion Fishing Rods ‘End of Year’ Team  Tournament Bass Fishing Trail Championship at Falls Lake. The weather was great! The winds were light to 8 mph, the air temps ranged from 44 to 72 and the water level was about 254′ . Surface water temps averaged 64

All except 2  teams weighed fish and afterwards were treated to Decky’s famous BBQ sandwiches and drinks!! It’s been a great year for Piedmont Bass Classics and we look forward to 2017. Thanks to all our anglers and sponsors.Without you it wouldn’t work!!!
