    Saturday March 17th, 2018 ~ Jordan Lake ~ Farrington Point Wildlife Ramp

    The 2018 PBC Academy Sports & Outdoors $10,000 Spring Team Bass Trail Qualifier #2 at Jordan Lake started pretty
    good. That morning the air temp was 35 degrees then warmed up to 59 in the pm. Water temps averaged about 50
    degrees. Winds were light at the 7:15 blastoff and then picked up to 15 to 20 for the afternoon! All 86 teams agreed it
    was a very tough fishing day. As soon as these cold fronts stop coming thru the water temps should be warming and the
    Spring fishing will become wide open!! It won't be long'

    Brian Fritts & Bo Adams just demolished the field weighing in 5 bass at 34.54 lbs. and also caught the 2nd place Big Fish
    (9.10 lbs.) plus won the 1st Place TWT for a total of $3,670 in winnings. The team found the fish in 4' to 10' of water
    using spinnerbaits, swim baits & crankbaits!!! They had 2 really big fish that helped weigh down the sack!!

    Todd Massey & Brandon Gray took 2nd place with 5 fish (one at 7.30 lbs.) weighing 25.44 lbs. and 2nd Place TWT to
    take home $1,595 in winnings. 3rd Place Team, Steve Upchurch & Johnny Howard, had 5 nice fish weighing 23.51 lbs.
    and took home $688!! The 1st Place Big Fish Award went to the team of James Sutton & Travis Priest (subbing for
    Sutton's regular partner, Michael McLamb). They took home a whopping $1,190 for the 9.34 lb. bass!!!
    The prize money got spread around pretty good today!

    Only 124 fish were weighed in for a total of 452 pounds for an average of 3.56 lbs. each. Most of the fish were caught on
    Swimbaits baits, chatterbaits, spinnerbaits and shallow running crankbaits in anywhere from 2 to 10 feet of water. Water
    temps are very important now and they need to warm up a little to get that hot bite we all want! Going to Falls next week
    and hopefully it will warm up a bit! Falls is always a great lake just about any time of year!!
