    PIEDMONT BASS CLASSICS $10,000 SPRING TEAM BASS TRAIL QUALIFIER #6 RESULTS
    Saturday May 14th, 2016 ~ Kerr Lake ~ New Nutbush State Park Ramp

    The 2016 Piedmont Bass Classics $10,000 Spring Team Bass Trail Qualifier #6 at Kerr Lake produced another
    great turnout for the PBC Trails even though the water level was 306+!! The weather started out great with air
    temps about 57 degrees in the am on up to 82 in the pm. Water temps averaged 73. Winds were quiet in the am
    and blowing up to about 10 in the pm. A great total of 74 teams participated with most all of them weighing in fish.
    The bite at Kerr was tough with weather patterns coming thru the area, some cold fresh water rains, rising water
    levels and cold fronts. It's just up & down. We did have quite a few 13+ bags and some nice 4 to 5 pounders seen.

    Stump Bledsoe & Glenn Elliott finished 1st Place weighing in 5 bass at 18.96 lbs. and along with winning the 1st
    Place TWT, 2nd place big fish (4.61) and with a check coming from Skeeter Boats Real Money Program , their
    winnings will top out at $4,218!!!
    Ricky Petty & Billy Cobb took 2nd place with 5 fish weighing 16.28 lbs. and they also won 2nd Place TWT for a
    total of $1,430. The 1st Place Big Fish (5.10 lbs.) was caught by the team of Will Bennett & Kyle Ash netting them
    total winnings of $1,022. 3rd Place went to the team of Jason Kopp & Dan Jenkins! They netted 5 for 15.12 lbs.
    and took home $575.

    269 fish were weighed in for a total of 612 pounds for an average of 2.28 lbs. each. Most of the fish were caught on WLS whacky worms, spinnerbaits and creature baits in 1 to 6 feet of water. The bass are still bedding in the
    shallower water. The water level at Kerr should be back to normal soon.

    I want to thank all the anglers that participated and all our sponsors that support this trail. Our next tournament is
    the Cashion Fishing Rods 'Falls Lake Open', Saturday May 21st at Falls Lake out of Ledge Rock Wildlife Ramp.
