CASHION FISHING RODS SPRING TEAM TOURNAMENT BASS TRAIL QUALIFIER #2
Saturday March 11th, 2017 ~ ~ Jordan Lake ~ ~ Farrington Point Wildlife Ramp

[print_link]

Cold, cold, cold!! 50 teams showed up for the Cashion Fishing Rods Spring Team Tournament Bass Trail Qualifier #2 at Jordan Lake. It was a beautiful day but cold with winds light in the am and up to 10 mph in the afternoon, the air temps ranged from 32 to 49 and the water level was about normal. Surface water temps averaged 56 degrees and the water was a little dingy! Numerous females were caught and swelled with roe, but with the unstable temps it’s just a matter of time before the Mom’s hit the bank!! A lot of 6, 7 to 8 lb. bass were  weighed in today.

Tony Fofi & Dave Murdock won 1st place with 5  bass weighing a total of 23.74 lbs to take 1st Place and 1st Place TWT for a total of $1,940 in prize money!

The 2nd Place team of Logan Ammons & Hunter Collins caught 5 bass weighing 23.30 lbs. and took home $600 in winnings. The 3rd Place team of Paul Owens & Tyler Faggart  netted 5 bass weighing 23.02 lbs. to pocket $520.

Keith Deal & Ricky Kenworthy won big fish honors & $500  with an 8.60 lb. chub.

It was close on the top of the leader board!! 163 bass were brought to the scales for a total of 598 pounds averaging 3.67 lbs. each. Jerk bait, spinnerbaits, jig  & pigs, crankbaits, WLS Shakey Heads, Chatterbaits and wacky worms fished in water from 4 to 10′ seemed to  be the ticket to hits. The bite was good with most all teams weighing in fish.
