  • Piedmont Bass Classics Announces 2016 Spring Tournament Schedule

    Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and Christmas

    season and I wish all of you a happy & prosperous New Year!!

    We have plenty of water in the lakes at this time and I'm ready

    to get started!!

    Well, it won't be long now! Our dates are set in stone and 2016 looks to

    be another great year for Piedmont Bass Classics. Our 1st event will be at

    Shearon Harris on Feb. 27th!! The 'Rowdy Time Lures Ice Buster Open'!!!

    At this time the 1st flights in all 7 qualifiers of the $10,000 Spring Trail are

    almost full. If you want that 1st flight start, get your entries in asap!!!

    Remember, we are still the only local tournament trail that quarantees the

    $10,000 Championship 1st place prize in cash and prizes!! Last year we averaged

    74 boats in our qualifiers which was over 30% to 50% more participation than

    any other local trails had in their qualifiers!! There is a reason for that! All the

    info on this trail is here:

    I decided to try something new to replace the Spring Mini Trail that we've had

    for so long. The demand for certain types of niche tournaments helped in making

    this decision. You will see what I'm doing by checking the 'Opens & Invitational

    Tournaments' on the website schedule. The 150 Shootout Open, for example,

    is just for boats with 150 horsepower or less and the Metal Mania Invitational is

    just for aluminum boats with 115 or less in horsepower. A lot of bass anglers

    don't want to fish in events against boats with larger horsepowers up to 250 or

    more and a lot of aluminum boat owners don't feel comfortable fishing with the

    big glass boats with large horsepowers, so here you go!! These events are designed

    for you and we hope you will come fish with us! It's your chance to get your feet

    wet in some well directed tournament bass fishing!!! Check out all the 'Opens &

    Invitational Tournaments' on the website:

    Info on some are not finalized at this time, but will be in the near future!!

    The May 7th Piedmont Bass Classics Anglers Invitational out of the New Nutbush

    Ramp at Kerr Lake, is open to any anglers the have fished with us in any of our

    PBC sanctioned events in 2015 and up to before the May 7th event date. This one

    is gonna be big and more information will be released in the near future.

    I'll be attending the Bass & Saltwater Show in Raleigh this coming weekend and

    will be based out of the Cashion Rods booth. I will be taking entries at the show only

    if you bring your entry blanks and deposits with you to the show. I will not have entry

    blanks at the show. You need to print them from the website, fill them out and bring

    them with you. Just follow the entry instruction on the website. If I am not at the

    Cashion booth, call me at 919-971-5042 and we will get up with each other. I'll be

    roaming around seeing all our sponsors!!

    Below is a listing of all the Spring Events and Dates. Call me if you have any questions.

    See you at the Show!!! Please forward this to all your fishing buddies and invite them

    to join in the fun as well as joining our email list.

    Thanks for fishing with Piedmont Bass Classics!
