  • Piedmont Bass Classics Mini Trail Results..Mayo Reservoir..Mar. 22nd

    Saturday March 22nd, 2014 ~ Mayo Reservoir ~ Triple Springs Wildlife Ramp

    The Piedmont Bass Classics Team Bass Spring Mini Trail qualifier #3 results showed that Mayo Reservoir is
    still a good producing lake even with the cold water conditions. 26 teams vied for the 1st place money on a right
    pretty day for fishing.
    It was a little chilly that morning at 44 degrees but ended up being a nice and comfortable 70 degrees at
    weighin. The forecast was for 7 mph winds but it ended up being a pretty steady 15 gusting to 20 at times. Water
    temps averaged 50 degrees. The prespawn bass seemed to be in fairly shallow 3-6 foot stained water mostly
    near the points. Most of the fish were caught on Rat-L-Traps and crankbaits.
    Jeff Hodges & Steve Upchurch caught 5 healthy bass weighing a total of 17.51 lbs. taking 1st Place. They also
    won 1st Place TWT for a total of $1,011 in winnings. 2nd Place went to Randy Fisher & Donnie Lowe with 5
    bass weighing 15.83 lbs. They also won the Big Fish award (5.62 lbs.) and took home a total of $649. Tim Goss
    won the Tow Boats US bonus of $50.
    75 bass were weighed in for a total of 217 pounds. This averaged right at 3 lbs. a fish and they were nice and
    healthy looking. Mayo is a good small lake fishery!
