    CASHION FISHING RODS 'END OF YEAR' TEAM BASS FISHING TRAIL QUALIFIER #1
    Saturday July 9th, 2016 ~ Falls Lake ~ Ledge Rock Wildlife Ramp

    The Cashion Fishing Rods 'End of Year' Team Tournament Bass Fishing Trail Qualifier #1 at Falls Lake got off
    to a good start with 22 teams showing up at the ramp. The weather for summer fishing was great. The winds
    were light & variable, the air temps ranged from 74 to 89 and the water level was above normal pool at 302.6'.
    Surface water temps averaged 85 warm degrees! A very bad storm hit the lake Friday night and the bite that
    had been good all week just stopped. The topwater bite was on for about an hour early on and then the bass
    backed off a little deeper.

    Mike Nichols did manage to catch 5 weighing 13.37 lbs to take 1st Place and 1st Place TWT for a total of
    $1,395!
    2nd Place team was Reginald Pickett & Larry Kirk with 5 bass weighing 11.88 lbs. They also won 2nd place
    TWT to take home a total of $715. The 3rd Place Team of Allen White & Michael Vaughan netted 5 bass
    weighing 11.72 and also had the big fish for the day (4.81 lbs.) and won a total of $608. 2nd Place Big Fish (4.78
    lbs.) was caught by the team of Butch Trimmer & Don Boivin worth $132.

    Only 57 bass were brought to the scales for a total of 120 pounds averaging 2.09 lbs. each. Most were caught on
    Carolina worm rigs, spinnerbaits, crankbait & jig combos in mostly shallow water. Rising water and a solid day
    of high pressure might have had something to do with the fish not biting.

    I want to thank Cashion Fishing Rods and all the anglers that participated. Our next tournament will be the
