  • Cashion Fishing Rods Tournament Trail Results~Jordan Lake~7/12


    Saturday July 12th, 2014 ~ Jordan Lake ~ Farrington Point Wildlife Ramp

    The Cashion Fishing Rods 'End of Year' Team Tournament Bass Fishing Trail had a good start Saturday at Jordan Lake! 40 teams showed up to fish Jordan, which can be tough to fish, especially in the hot summer with all the pleasure boats and jet skis speeding around! But we have some of the best anglers in the state and they pretty much showed how good they could be under the conditions at this 1st Cashion qualifier. Turned out to be a great day weatherwise. About 69 in the am and around 88 in the afternoon. The wind never got up at all which pleased most of our anglers. Water temps averaged 88 degrees. The fish were caught in shallow water early on to 20' of water later in the day, which is a regular summer pattern at Jordan. Jigs, C & T rigs, spinnerbaits and crankbaits seemed to be the hot baits.

    Scott Gatton & Mark Brogan landed 5 bass weighing a total of 24.64 lbs. taking 1st Place worth $976. 2 bass weighing over 6 lbs. helped them win on this day!

    Close by was the 2nd Place Team of Tony Fofi & Dave Murdock with 5 bass weighing 23.50 lbs. They also won the 1st Place TWT and took home a total of $1,225. 3rd Place Team, Jason Suggs & Britton O'Quinn, had 20.92 lbs, 1st Place Big Fish & won the 2nd Place TWT to take home a whopping $1,265! 7th place Team Member Scott Smith won the Tow Boats US Member Award of $50.

    117 bass were weighed in for a total of 369 pounds. This averaged over 3 lbs. a fish and they were nice and healthy looking. Jordan is still a great fishery! Also heard from some anglers of White Bass, Crappie & Stripers on the rebound at Jordan.

    I want to thank all the anglers that participated and all our sponsors that support these trails. Our next tournament will be the Cashion Fishing Rods 'End of Year' Team Tournament Bass Fishing Trail Qualifier #2, Saturday, July 26th at Mayo Reservoir out of Triple Springs Wildlife Ramp.
