North Carolina’s Bass Nation members competed in the NCBN Eastern Regional on Lake Gaston with 69 anglers vying to represent the NC BASS Nation at the 2019 BASS Regional hosted by B.A.S.S. with all hoping to continue on the road to qualify for a shot at the BASS MASTER CLASSIC!

Rob Conway was the emerging victor and he overtook Ivan Morris on the second day to claim the Championship. On Day one, Ivan had the lead with a great catch of 14.54 pounds with Rob right behind at 13.64 pounds. It was never in doubt that the duel would be between those two for the championship as third place was less a touch shy of 10 pounds. On Day two, Rob brought 5 fish to the scales weighing 13.40 and Ivan brought 10.92 and Rob Conway claimed the Championship.

The top four boaters advancing to the B.A.S.S. regional in Maine are: Rob Conway – 27.04 lbs, Ivan Morris – 25.46 lbs, Michael Garner – 21.33 lbs and Brian Sorrell at 18.09 lbs.

These four anglers have punched their way to the 2019 NCBN State Team as boaters. The qualifiers will head to Maine in 2019 trying to make it to the B.A.S.S. National Championship.

On the non-boater side, there was a wild finish as well. Phil Bain came from 13th place to win the non-boater championship. Phil had only one fish on Day one, but that 1.83 pound fish put him over the top when he weighed in 10.78 lbs to win the co-angler championship. Phil weighed a two day total of 12.61 lbs. David Blanton came in second place with 11.86 lbs and Chris Moss was third with 11.42 lbs. These three anglers advance to the 2019 NCBN State Team.

Hog Snatches team 1 claimed the Title of Eastern Regional Team Champions with a total weight of 63.17 pounds. Team Bassmasters took second with 57.77 pounds.

Triton Big Fish Honors were Day 1 Rob Conway – 4.92 lbs (boater) ; Matt Rodriguez 3.62 (non-boater)

Day 2 Lowrance Big bass award (boater) Brian Sorrell 5.17 lbs (non-boater) David Blanton 5.90 lbs
