CASHION FISHING RODS SPRING TEAM TOURNAMENT BASS TRAIL QUALIFIER #4
Saturday April 7th, 2018 ~ ~ Kerr Lake ~ ~ Flemingtown Landng Wildlife Ramp
The bad weather hit us again!! We had the Cashion Fishing Rods Spring Team Tournament Bass Trail Qualifier #4 at Kerr Lake knowing it might get rough. The weather for the 25 teams was not too bad in the morning with hardly any rain
from blastoff to 10am and winds very light with air temps in the 50’s. At 12 noon everything started to change leading to 15 to 20 mph winds, steady rain and the temps dropping to 39 when we left. It was tough those last 3 hours on the water!! But our guys are tough too!! Surface water temps averaged 56 degrees! The fish were caught in 2 to 10 foot of water. The water level was right at 303 and should be warming up starting this coming week!
Jaime Fajardo & Josh Hooks stayed warm enough to catch 5 keepers weighing a total of 18.42 lbs. to take 1st Place and 1st Place TWT for a total of $1,325 in prize money! Fajardo on left, Hooks on right. Close behind was the 2nd Place team of Todd Massey & Brandon Gray landing 5 bass weighing16.62 lbs. and along with winning the 2nd Place TWT and 1st Place Big Fish (5.22 lbs.) they took home $1,035 in winnings. The 3rd Place Father/Son team of Chuck & Levi Byrd presented 5 bass weighing 15.96 lbs. to rack up $320 in winnings. The 2nd place Big Fish (5.05 lbs.) was caught by the team of John Anton & Britt Kuchen
for $150 in winnings! The bass weighed in Saturday we very fat and healthy!! Good to see that at Kerr again!!!
95 bass were brought to the scales for a total of 251 pounds averaging 2.64 lbs. each. Short leadered Carolina Rigs in shallow water, spinner baits and Jigs seemed to be the lures of choice.
