PBC ACADEMY SPORTS & OUTDOORS SPRING TEAM BASS TRAIL QUALIFIER #5
Saturday April 27th, 2019 ~ ~ Kerr Lake ~ ~ Flemingtown Landing Wildlife Ramp
Kerr Lake! Oh Well. Fishing was great during the week then a cold front moved in yet most all had a limit but the larger fish are just hard to find!! Air temps ranged from 47 to 70, lake level 303 and the winds blew from 5 to 13 pretty much all day with surface temps averaging 68 degrees. Our best turnout of the year, 96 boats, competed in the PBC Academy
Sports & Outdoors $10K Spring Team Bass Trail Qualifier #5!
Timmy Ferrell (L) & Howard Lee Bohannon managed to catch 5 bass weighing a total of 17.21 lbs. to take 1st Place and 1st Place TWT winning a total of $3,595 in prize money! Ferrell (L)..Bohannon (R)
The 2nd Place team of Dennis Reedy and Tommy Marrow (subbing for Scott Smith) took home $1,730 prize money by catching 5 bass weighing 16.66 lbs. and winning the 2nd Place TWT. Scott Mooneyham & Buster Seabolt took 3rd with 5 bass weighing 16.54 lbs. winning $703. The 1st Place Big Fish (6.36 lbs.) was caught by the team of Richard Cooper & Drew Johnson and along with splitting prize money with a tie for 4th, took home $1,901!!! Some good money was paid out today!!!
383 bass were brought to the scales and many of those weighed in the 4 lb. range typical now for Kerr. Worms, topwater, chatterbaits along with jigs & spinnerbaits in the more shallow 4 to 6′ of water seemed to be the lures of choice. You noticed I said ‘Topwater’!! Lots of fish caught but size still isn’t what it was years ago.
I want to thank Academy Sports & Outdoors along with all our other sponsors and all the anglers that participated. Our next tournament will be the 2019 PBC Hart’s Custom Sets/Cashion Fishing Rods $5K Spring
Team Bass Trail FINAL Qualifier #5 , Saturday May 4th also at Kerr Lake out of Flemingtown Landing Wildlife
