  • RESULTS CASHION FISHING RODS SPRING TEAM TOURNAMENT BASS TRAIL QUALIFIER #1 Saturday February 25th, 2017 ~  ~ Shearon Harris ~ ~ Cross Point Landing

    It was like fishing in July!!! 74 boats arrived to vie for the 1st Place award in the Cashion Fishing Rods Spring
    Team Tournament Bass Trail Qualifier #1 at Shearon Harris Lake. The weather was unlike we've ever seen in
    February with winds light & variable in the am and up to 15 mph in the afternoon, the air temps ranged from 59
    to 80 and the water level was about normal. Surface water temps were 53 to 63 degrees depending where you
    were on the lake! The fish are trying to hit the banks but with the unstable temps it's just a matter of time
    before the spawn really begins!! No rhyme or reason in finding a pattern. Polygraph was given and results final.

    Tyler Faggart & Paul Owens found 5 overslot bass weighing a total of 24.60 lbs to take 1st Place and 1st Place
    TWT for a total of $2,570 in prize money!
    The 2nd Place team of Billy Bledsoe & Brian McDonald caught 5 bass weighing 18.50 lbs. and took home $800
    in winnings. The 3rd Place team of KC Choosakul & Tim Penhollow presented 5 bass weighing 17.41 lbs. and
    they also won 1st Place Big Fish (9.26 lbs.) to rack up $1,375 in winnings.

    With the slot limit rules enforced at Harris, only 104 bass were brought to the scales for a total of  pounds
    averaging 2.99 lbs. each. Jerk baits, spinnerbaits, jig & pigs and Alabama rigs in the more shallow water
    seemed to be the lures of choice.

    I want to thank Cashion Fishing Rods and all the anglers that participated. Our next tournament will be the
    2017 Piedmont Bass Classics $10,000 Spring Team Bass Trail Qualifier #1 , Saturday March 4th also at
