Falls Lake ~ August 25th, 2012 ~ Ledge Rock Wildlife Ramp

18 teams that qualified for the Championship at Falls Lake in the 2012 JB Custom Rods~Piedmont Bass Classics $5,000 Summer Bass Tournament Trail came ready to try and win the big money! Only one team could win and it was the team of Ken Wall of Asheboro & Ben Cannon of Apex! They fished the area between Hwy. 50 bridge and Cheek Road bridge and came in with only 4 bass, but they weighed 18.08 pounds, enough to take home the cash! They won the 1st place money along with 1st place Big Fish, 1st place TWT & also collected the 2 JB Custom Rods Points Champions Award, worth $250 each. All total, they won $4,512 in cash and prizes!

The rain quit before blastoff with 64 degrees in the morning with light winds & clouds, then close to 68 in the pm with scattered clouds & 10-15 mph winds. The bite was a little better than last Saturday with 42 fish weighed in for a total weight of 114 pounds. Most fish were caught in the river channel from Hwy. 50 to the Redmill Road ramp on the Eno. Plastic worms, jigs and crankbaits seemed to be the preferred baits. Water temps were around 80 degrees. The Big Fish weighed in at 7.40 pounds! I want to thank all the anglers that participated and that support this trail.

Our next tournament will be the 2012 JB Custom Rods~Piedmont Bass Classics Fall Team Bass Trail Qualifier #1 at Jordan Lake out of Farrington Point Wildlife Ramp, Sunday, September 9th.

The Fall Trail lakes will include Shearon Harris, Falls & Jordan with the Championship at Harris.
