    Saturday April 14th, 2018 ~ Kerr Lake ~ Flemingtown Landing Wildlife Ramp

    Another great turnout for the 2018 PBC Academy Sports & Outdoors $10,000 Spring Team Bass Trail Qualifier #4 at
    Kerr Lake! 97 boats vied for the win on a warm day at Kerr. That morning the air temp was 64 degrees then warmed up
    to 80 in the pm. Water temps averaged about 60 degrees. Winds were light at blastoff and then picked up to about 10
    mph for the afternoon! For most of the anglers the bite was good with a lot of 2 pounders caught and also a lot of 4 lb.
    class bass caught! The bass a Kerr are recovering very well from a gill disease in the past and look very healthy!!

    Jaime Fajardo & Josh Hooks beat out the field weighing in 5 bass at 19.46 lbs. & also won the 1st Place TWT &
    Skeeter Boats Easy Money for a total of $6,460 in winnings. The team found the fish in shallow water in the back of
    coves in the bushes using plastics & jigs.

    John Anton & Bryce McClenney took 2nd place with 5 fish weighing 17.75 lbs. and won 1st Place Big Fish (5.85 lbs.) to
    take home $2,209 in winnings. 3rd Place Team, Seth Ellis & Doug Stallings, had 5 healthy fish weighing 17.62 lbs. and
    along with winning the 2nd place TWT they took home $1,518!! The 2nd Place Big Fish award (5.28 lbs.) went to the 11th
    Place Team of Thanos Tsoumbos & Mike Stephenson for $839 in total prize money.

    359 fish were weighed in for a total of 866 pounds for an average of 2.41 lbs. each. Most of the fish were caught on
    flippin' plastics, jigs and shallow running squarebill crankbaits in anywhere from 2 to 7 feet of water. The warm weather
    is coming but staggered with the cold weather making it tough to predict the spawn and anticipated 'good' bite!!!
