  • PBC Cashion Fishing Rods 'End of Year' Bass Trail Results..Mayo Lake..July 25th


    Saturday July 25th, 2015 ~ Mayo Lake ~ Triple Springs Wildlife Ramp

    The Cashion Fishing Rods 'End of Year' Team Tournament Bass Fishing Trail Qualifier #2 at Mayo Lake just showed how tough this clear lake can be in the summer. 21 teams found light winds, air temps ranging from 69 to 89 and the water level at normal pool for this day. Surface water temps averaged 87 degrees! The topwater bite was on for about an hour early on and then the bass backed off to dropoffs around 15 to 20 feet.

    Keith Wray, a regular at Mayo won by catching 5 bass weighing 18.33 lbs to take 1st Place, 1st Place TWT and also a $50 Gift Certificate from Sharp Shooter Custom Tackle for a total of $1,190!

    2nd Place was won by Ernest Warren with 5 bass weighing 15.14 lbs. to take home a total of $455. The 3rd Place Team of Mark Herndon & Jay Garred netted 5 bass weighing 11.50 lbs. & also won the 2nd Place TWT for a total of $450. 1st Place Big Fish (5.62 lbs.) was caught by the team of Derek Bowden & Matthew Little worth $270.

    Only 45 bass were brought to the scales for a total of 119 pounds averaging 2.63 lbs. each. Most were caught on straight lining spoons, Carolina worm rigs, crankbait & jig combos in 15 feet of water on average.
