Saturday July 29th, 2017 ~ Jordan Lake ~ Farrington Point Wildlife Ramp

Saturday was a great day at Jordan Lake!  The weather was nice with air temps around 71 degrees in the am on up to 83 at the 2pm weighin. Water temps averaged about 80 degrees. Winds were what kept everything bearable and cooler!! Very little breeze in the am and picking up to around 8 to 10 in the pm. The turnout was great with 50 teams going for the top prize. There were a lot of bass weighed in today with many in the 4 to 7 lb. range. The bass looked well fed and very healthy for this time of year! Jordan is still one of the best fisheries in the state!!

The team of Jeff Hodges and John Michenfelder won 1st Place, weighing in 5 bass at 23.50 lbs. and also won the 2nd Place Big Fish Award (7.80 lbs.) and the 1st Place Tournament within a Tournament (TWT) for a total of $2,215 in winnings. The team said most of their bass were caught off channel points in 10 to 15‘ or more of depth using
crankbaits & Carolina rigs.
