CASHION FISHING RODS SPRING TEAM TOURNAMENT BASS TRAIL QUALIFIER #4 Saturday April 8th, 2017 ~ ~ Kerr Lake ~ ~ Flemingtown Landing Wildlife Ramp
Saturday April 8th, 2017 ~ ~ Kerr Lake ~ ~ Flemingtown Landing Wildlife Ramp
A beautiful day for the 41 boats fishing the Cashion Fishing Rods Spring Team Tournament Bass Trail Qualifier #4 at Kerr Lake. The weather was very nice for April with winds very light in the am and up to 7 mph in the afternoon, the air temps ranged from 33 to 69 and the water level was about 2′ high and in the bushes! Surface water temps averaged 57 degrees and the water was fairly clear! The bite was a little tough with the cold front causing most of the problem. The fish are just starting the spawn and were caught in mostly 1 to 10′ of water. With the warm weather forecasted in the coming week the spawn should begin!
The Virginia team of Eddy Glascock & Billy Dunn caught 5 bass weighing a total of 17.46 lbs to take 1st Place and 1st Place TWT for a total of $1,750 in winnings!

The 2nd Place was won by Ken McNeill, fishing without his partner Thomas Sheffer, giving him a good day with 5 bass weighing 16.99 lbs. and took home $575 in winnings. The 3rd Place team of Keith Deal & Ricky Kenworthy landed 5 bass weighing 16.70 lbs. winning $460. Big fish for the day (5.91 lbs.) was caught by the
team of Garrett Allred & Joe Broome and filled their pockets with $410 in cash!
131 bass were brought to the scales for a total of 355 pounds averaging 2.71 lbs. each. Flippin’ jigs, wacky worms, crankbaits and jerkbaits in the more shallow water seemed to be the lures of choice. I want to thank Cashion Fishing Rods and all the anglers that participated. Our next tournament will be the 2017 Cashion Fishing Rods Spring Team Bass Trail Final Qualifier #5 , Saturday April 15th at Falls Lake out of Ledge Rock Wildlife Ramp. On Saturday April 22nd, the Qualifier #4 for the Piedmont Bass Classics $10,000 Spring Trail will be held at Kerr Lake out of Flemingtown Landing.
