    degrees. Winds were nonexistent in the am up to about 7 mph in the afternoon. There were a lot of bass
    weighed in but most were small. We did have 5 bass over 5 pounds which is a good sign that Kerr is getting well.

    PIEDMONT BASS CLASSICS $10,000 SPRING TEAM BASS TRAIL QUALIFIER #5 RESULTS
    Saturday May 13, 2017 ~ Falls Lake ~ Ledge Rock Wildlife Ramp

    The rain hit at checkin then moved out at blastoff for the Piedmont Bass Classics $10,000 Spring Team Bass Trail
    Qualifier #5 at Falls Lake!  74 teams enjoyed the 55 degrees in the am and the 74 in the pm. Water temps averaged
    about 70 degrees. Winds for the day were just light & variable. Falls Lake is still showing that it's one of the best
    fisheries for bass in North Carolina. Some bass are still on the bed and some are now off and hungry!! The water
    level was right at 255', down quite a bit from a week ago!

    Jaime Fajardo and John Yager (subbing for Josh Hooks) won the event weighing in 5 bass with an impressive
    27.24 lbs. and also won the Tournament Within a Tournament (TWT) for a total of $2,780 in winnings.  Fajardo will
    also collect an additional $3,000 pending approval from the Skeeter Boats 'Real Money' Contingency Program
    which will bring their winnings to $5,780 !!!

    Close to winning, Jeremy Martin & Jim Nichols wrapped up 2nd place with 5 fish weighing 26.70 lbs. and also took
    2nd Place TWT to pocket $1,430. 3rd place team, Thanos Tsoumbos & Manley Jones (subbing for Mike
    Stephenson) , won $575 with 25.32 lbs. Big Fish for the day was caught by the team of Geno McCree & Rodney
    Hilber (7.36 lbs.) giving them a total of $1,008!! 2nd Place Big Fish was landed by the team of Rick Sossaman &
    Kyle Richardt (7.24 lbs.) paying them $630!!! The prize money got spread around pretty good today again!

    293 fish were weighed in for a total of 1,020 pounds for an average of 3.48 lbs. each. Most of the fish were caught
    flipping creature baits, casting spinnerbaits, WLS shaky heads, buzzbaits, chatterbaits and crankbaits in anywhere
    from 1 to 10 feet of water. Some were caught on Carolina rigs as well. Numerous bass in the 6 to 7 lb. range were
    brought to the scales.

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

    RESULTS
    CASHION FISHING RODS SPRING TEAM TOURNAMENT BASS TRAIL FINAL QUALIFIER #5
                  Saturday April 15th, 2017 ~  ~ Falls Lake ~ ~ Ledge Rock Wildlife Ramp

    53 boats arrived on a beautiful day to fish the final Cashion Fishing Rods Spring Team Tournament Bass Trail
    Qualifier #5 at Falls Lake. The April weather was great with winds very light in the am and up to 10 mph in the
    afternoon, the air temps ranged from 60 to 80 and the water level was about normal. Surface water temps averaged 70
    degrees and the water was a little dingy on the I-85 end but clearer towards the dam. The bite was not really that great
    with the main reasons being high pressure, huge shad spawn, huge carp spawn and bass spawning also. It should all be
    over in the next few weeks hopefully!

    The veteran team of Billy Bledsoe & Brian McDonald weighed in 5 nice bass weighing a total of 21.83 lbs to take 1st
    Place and 1st Place TWT for a total of $2,050 in winnings! The team will also be collecting $3,000 from Skeeter boats
    and over $100 from TH Marine in Contingency awards!!

     Bledsoe on left & McDonald
    The 2nd Place team of Jaime Fajardo & Josh Hooks caught 5 bass weighing 20.15 lbs. and took home $594 in
    winnings. The 3rd Place team of Matt Harrison & Angela Bishop brought to the scales 5 bass weighing 19.31 lbs.
    taking home $510 in winnings. Big fish for the day was caught by Bobby Matthews of Durham (6.28 lbs.) worth $530 !!

    Only 108 bass were brought to the scales for a total of 291 pounds averaging 2.70 lbs. each which is way off for Falls
    Lake! It's just that time of year.  Spinnerbaits, jig & pigs, chatterbaits and small crankbaits in the more shallow water
    again seemed to be the lures of choice.

    I want to thank Cashion Fishing Rods and all the anglers that participated. The Cashion Fishing Rods Spring Bass
    Trail Championship will be held June 10th at Falls for those teams that qualified. Our next tournament will be the 2017
    Piedmont Bass Classics $10,000 Spring Team Bass Trail Qualifier #4 , Saturday April 22nd at Kerr Lake out of
    Flemingtown Landing Wildlife Ramp.  The following Saturday, April 29th, will be the 28th Annual Tobacco Bass
    Invitational Tournament also at Kerr Lake.  All the information on our tournaments and dates can be found

    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!
