We thought Jordan Lake was done for the year…Wrong!!!  The bass are feeding up for the winter! The weather was ‘Fallish’ with air temps around 48 degrees in the am on up to 79 at the 3pm weighin. Water temps averaged about 73 degrees. The wind was light and variable all day long. 29 team turned out to vie for the 1st place honors. Right many bass were weighed in today for a Fall bite. The bass looked well fed and very healthy! Lots of smaller bass were caught leaving Jordan looking good for the future.

The team of Keith Deal & Anthony Miller won 1st Place, with 5 bass weighing 23.22 lbs. and also won the 1st Place Big Fish Award (7.33 lbs.) and the 1st Place Tournament within a Tournament (TWT) for a total of $1,862 in winnings. The team said most of their bass were caught on offshore humps and off bank & point dropoffs in 4 to 10′
or more of water depth using crankbaits & Texas rigs.

107 fish were weighed in for a total of 295 pounds for an average of 2.78 lbs. each. Most of the fish were caught on  a
variety of lures…Topwater, Texas rigs, Carolina rigs, Jig combos, Spinnerbaits and Crankbaits in 2 to 10′ of water off
bank & point dropoffs, main lake humps and rip rap. The Fall bite is going strong!!
