    PIEDMONT BASS CLASSICS $10,000 SPRING TEAM BASS TRAIL QUALIFIER #3
    Saturday April 1st, 2017 ~ Falls Lake ~ Ledge Rock Wildlife Ramp..RESULTS

    The 2017 Piedmont Bass Classics $10,000 Spring Team Bass Trail Qualifier #3 at Falls Lake drew a great crowd of
    91 boats and they were chompin' at the bit to fish hard!  The weather was nice for Saturday with air temps 51
    degrees in the am on up to 74 in the pm. Water temps averaged about 65 degrees. Winds were nonexistent in the
    am to a steady 10 mph blow in the afternoon.  Things are starting to pick up at Falls with some nice bass being
    caught. We just need some continuous warm weather to get water temps right for the spawn.

    Walt Gulledge & Tony Fielden won their 1st ever PBC event weighing in 5 bass at 25.68 lbs. and also won the
    Tournament Within a Tournament (TWT) for a total of $3,210 in winnings. Fielden will also collect an additional
    $7,000 pending approval from the Triton Boats Gold Contingency Program which will bring their winnings to
    $10,210 !!!

    340 fish were weighed in for a total of 1,019 pounds for an average of 3.00 lbs. each. Most of the fish were caught
    on WLS shaky heads, Jig combos, chatterbaits, Spinnerbaits and Crankbaits in anywhere from 1 to 10 feet of water.
    Most of the bass were loaded with eggs and are starting to move into the shallower water and a few others had
    spawned out. It's starting!
