PBC CASHION FISHING RODS ‘End of Year’ TEAM BASS FISHING TRAIL RESULTS
Saturday September 23rd, 2017 ~ Kerr Lake ~ Flemingtown Landing Wildlife Ramp
The qualifier #6 of PBC Cashion Fishing Rods ‘End of Year’ Trail at Kerr Lake is always interesting! Usually it’s “which ever team catches the 5 biggest little fish win” and today was no exception!! 32 teams competed for the top
prize and it was a little tough! Air temps ranged from 59 degrees in the am with fog and on up to 82 at the 3pm weighin. Water temps averaged about 81 degrees. Winds were nonexistent in the am up to about 7 mph in the
afternoon. The bite was good but it was tough to get 5 good fish.
The team of Hal Blackwelder & Brian Welch caught the best little ones, weighing in 5 bass at 14.82 lbs., enough to win 1st Place and also won the 1st Place Tournament within a Tournament (TWT) for a total of $1,410 in winnings. The team said most of their bass were caught off shallow rocky bank bottoms in 2 to 4‘ of water with topwater &C- rigs.1st…Blackwelder on left.
Following really close were Tony Woodard & Stewart Adams. They came in 2nd place with 5 fish weighing 14.65 lbs. & also won 2nd Place TWT to pocket a total of $747. 3rd place team Allen White & Mike Vaughan, with 5 weighing
14.22 lbs., also won the 1st Place Big Fish Award (4.62 lbs.) to take home $833. The 2nd Place Big Fish weighed 4.07 lbs. and was caught by the 5th Place Team of Jeff Dunn & Max Hoover netting them $423 in prize money!! Things
were really close for the top 5 teams!!!
Only 72 fish were weighed in for a total of 170 pounds for an average of 2.36 lbs. each. Most of the fish were caught on Topwater, Carolina rigs, Jig combos and Shakey Heads in 2 to 4‘ of water off boat docks, rocky and woody lake
