The 2018 PBC Academy Sports & Outdoors $10,000 Spring Team Bass Trail Qualifier #5 at Jordan Lake got off with a great start with light winds and morning temps at 52 degrees. It then warmed up to around 70 in the pm. Water temps averaged about 63 degrees. Winds were light at the 6:30 blastoff and then picked up to 8 to 12 for the afternoon! 90 teams duked it out and between a full moon, cool night and the lake rising 4 feet almost overnight it was tough!

Randy Parker & Rick Ohlson topped the field weighing in 5 bass at 26.34 lbs. plus they won the 1st Place TWT for a total of $3,120 in winnings. The team found the fish in shallow wate r around trees & bushes while flipping plastic worms & jigs!!! They had 1 r eally good fish (6.13) that helped weight the sack!!

  Parker on left and Ohlson on right.

Scott Mooneyham & Buster Seabolt took 2nd place with 5 fish weighing 22.54 lbs. to take home $864 in winnings. The 3rd Place  Team of Bud Whitt & Spencer Moody weighed in 5 at 20.62 lbs., took 2nd Place TWT and won the 1st Place
Big Fish (7.75 lbs.) for a whopping total of $2,635!! The 2nd Place Big Fish (6.77 lbs.) was won by Tyler Faggart & Paul Owens netting them $534!!    The prize money got spread around pretty good today!
Only 225 fish were weighed in (which is really low for Jordan this time of year) for a total of 691 pounds for an ave rage of 3.07 lbs. each. Most of the fish were caught on  plastic worms, jigs, chatterbaits and spinnerbaits in anywhere from 1 to 5 feet of water. We still need for the water to warm up a little to get that hot bite we all want! Going to Falls in 2 weeks and  hopefully it will warm up a bit! Falls is always a great lake just about any time of year!!
