    PIEDMONT BASS CLASSICS $10,000 SPRING TEAM BASS TRAIL QUALIFIER #5 RESULTS
    Saturday April 30th, 2016 ~ Jordan Lake ~ Farrington Point Wildlife Ramp

    Another big turnout for the 2016 Piedmont Bass Classics $10,000 Spring Team Bass Trail Qualifier #5 at Jordan
    Lake!! It just keeps getting better!! The weatherman snuck one in on us. The predicted sunny with highs in the
    70's turned out to be a cold front with overcast skies all day with highs in the 60's, morning heavy mist and winds
    around 10mph out of the NNW all day. I could save the TV stations a lot of money if they ever need a new
    weatherman!! Water temps averaged 75. A big crowd of 79 teams participated with most all of them weighing in
    some fish. Jordan bass are bedding hard with some finished but plenty in a hard spawn at this time. It was tough.

    Billy Bledsoe & Brian McDonald won their 2nd 2016 PBC Spring Trail Qualifier weighing in 5 bass at 24.24 lbs. to
    take 1st place, 2nd Place Big Fish Award (7.53 lbs), 1st place TWT and also will receive a check from Skeeter
    Boats Real Money for a total of $6,272 in winnings.

    Winning 2nd place (their highest finish ever with PBC) was the team of Steve Bulluck & Brad Ellinger with 5 fish
    weighing 23.47 lbs. They also won 2nd Place TWT for a total of $1,452. 3rd Place Team, Jimmy Holland &
    Richard Greene, had 5 weighing 22.62 lbs. and along with 1st Place Big Fish Award, they pocketed $2,102!! Scott
    Smith won the Tow Boats US Member Award.

    216 fish were weighed in for a total of 677 pounds for an average of 3.13 lbs. each. Most of the fish were caught on
    WLS shaky heads, crankbaits, Bass Alarm Jigs, Shanes spinnerbaits, jerk baits and plastic worms in 2 to 10' of
    water or less. It was really a tough bite due to the spawn.

    I want to thank all the anglers that participated and all our sponsors that support this trail. Our next tournament is
