Wow!! What a beautiful Summer day!! The PBC Cashion Fishing Rods ‘End of Year’ Trail Qualifier #4 at Jordan Lake welcomed 42 boats to a cool morning with hardly no wind and am temps at around 60. Air temps rose to about 87 at the 2:30pm weighin and the winds were still light. Water temps averaged about 82 degrees. The bite was again typical for Summer but the top 3 teams were almost within 1 lb. of each other! Real close at the top. We also had 2 beautiful bass ove 8 lbs. weighed in by the same angler! 34 of the 42 boat field weighed in fish. Not bad.

The veteran team of Thomas Sheffer & Ken McNeill, won 1st Place weighing in 5 bass at 21.64 lbs. and also won 1st
Place TWT for a total of $1,830 in winnings.

20.74 lbs. & also won 2nd Place TWT to pocket a total of $933. 3rd place team, Billy Bledsoe & Brian McDonald won $470 with 5 weighing 20.28 lbs. The 1st Place Big Fish weighed 8.52 lbs. and was caught by the 7th Place team of Lee Williams (fishing without his regular partner Scott Smith) netting him a total of $762 in cash!! Lee only weighed 2
bass in and both were 8 pounders caught back to back!! The other weighed 8.11 lbs.

105 fish were weighed in for a total of 326 pounds for an average of 3.11 lbs. each. Most of the larger fish were caught on Jigs, Carolina rigs, and Crankbaits in 10‘ of water off main point dropoffs, wood & rock ledges and creek channels.
