Kerr Lake....Flemingtown Ramp....April 14, 2012

78 teams showed up at Kerr for the 4th qualifying tournament of the Boats Unlimited~Piedmont Bass Classics 2012 Spring Bass Tournament Trail. The weather was just beautiful! 49 degrees in the morning with 3 mile an hour winds, then close to 75 in the pm with lights winds and the water level was just about back to normal. This was our best turnout of the year and I want to thank everyone that participated! 281 fish were weighed in for a big total weight of 625 pounds and all the bass looked very healthy. Most fish were caught in 1 to 3 feet of water on a variety of baits including jerk baits,spinnerbaits, plastic worms, crankbaits, buzzbaits and Rat-L-Traps for the most part. The hot baits for the day reported to be plastics! Water temps were around 63 degrees. I want to thank all the anglers that participated and that support this trail. Our next 'Boats Unlimited $10,000 Spring Bass Trail' event will be Saturday, April 28th, at Falls Lake. Our next 'Special Open' Tournament will be the 'Overton's of Raleigh Open' at Falls Lake Saturday, May 5th.
