Piedmont Bass Classics Results September 25, 2011 ~ Falls Lake ~ Ledge Rock Ramp PBC $5,000 Fall Trail Qualifier #3 The $5,000 Fall Trail qualifier #3 at Falls Lake was by far the biggest surprise for the year! Falls has been a little off this year as far as bag weights go and Sunday was no exception. But! There were 2 bass caught over 8 pounds and another over 7! That was the surprise! 15 boats showed up to qualify for the Championship scheduled for November 6th at Shearon Harris. The weather this Sunday was pretty good with just a sprinkle here and there with partly cloudy skies and light humidity. 51 bass were weighed in for a total of 132 pounds. Water temps averaged 74 and air temps ranged from 69 to 84 with winds ranging from light to 10 mph in the afternoon. Big fish for the day was 8.22 pounds caught by the winning team of David Hall & Dane Sallinger. The bass are now moving to more shallow water with the temps dropping! The bass at Falls also looked to be in a very healthy condition.

Hall & Sallinger won with 5 bass weighing 22.70 lbs! They used mostly jigs to make up their creel. Their catch included 2 bass weighing 8.22 & 7.32 that were caught back to back! Those two fish made up over half of their bag weight! Fall fishing is now getting hot and all the area lakes should be producing some nice fish. Most of the bass caught were in 2 to 8 feet of water off rocky points & stump flats.

The $5,000 Fall Trail qualifier #4 will be Sunday, October 2nd at Shearon Harris Lake out of Holleman's Crossing Wildlife Ramp. Teams must fish 4 of the 7 qualifiers to fish the Championship on November 6th, and there are only 4 qualifiers left! So don't miss out on this great Fall fishing. The projected 1st place in the Championship should be well over $2,000 !!! Harris should be a good turnout!
