Morning air temp was around 69 degrees thenwarmed up to 88 in the pm. Water temps averaged about 86 degrees. Winds were light all day!  The lake level was right at 252 and water clarity was good. Bass were shallow in the morning and then moved out to around 6 to 12′ when the suncame up. After everyone was weighed in the polygraph was given. Then all the anglers were treated to hot dogs, chips and drinks! Then we gave away over $7,000 in door prizes thanks to our great sponsors!!! Then awarded the prizemoney & trophies! PBC had a great year and thanks to all that supported this great trail.

257 fish were weighed in for a total of 800 pounds for an average of 3.11 lbs. each, a good average for Falls Lake evenwith a cold front that had moved in a few days before!  Most of the fish were caught on Carolina & Texas worm rigs and crankbaits in anywhere from 2 to 12 feet of water. Warm weather is here so lookfor a morning shallow bite and then godeeper when the sun comes up! Don’t believe the naysayers…Falls Lake is doing just fine.
