Hunting season arrived and the qualifier #5 of PBC Cashion Fishing Rods ‘End of Year’ Trail at Falls Lake took a hit with only 30 teams showing up and the weights took a hit too! Air temps ranged from 54 degrees in the am on up to 70 at the 3pm weighin. Water temps averaged about 74 degrees. Winds were nonexistent in the am up to about 10
mph in the afternoon. The bite was good but it was tough to get 5 good fish…most were small.
