We got lucky on the weather again today! The rain stopped! The PBC Cashion Fishing Rods ‘End of Year’ Trail at Falls Lake hosted 27 qualified teams today for the Championship. The wind was light and variable in the am and picked up to about 10mpg at noon! Water temps averaged about 67 degrees and the water level was about a foot above normal. Air temps were 49 to 67. We had a couple of good bags but for the most part the bite was hard to find! It was tough!!

Just 45 fish were weighed in for a total of 119 pounds for an average of 2.65 lbs. each. Most of the fish were caught on Spinnerbaits, Carolina rigs, Jig combos and Crankbaits in 4 to 8′ of water off grass flats and creek channels. The bite was just plain bad. The previous day heavy rains and cold front just put’em down.
