    Saturday March 2nd, 2019 ~ ~ Shearon Harris ~ ~ Cross Point Landing Wildlife Ramp

    Finally got a day with 60 degrees & no rain but we did have to move from Jordan because of the high water and ramp
    closures but were lucky enough to get a ramp permit at Shearon Harris. 79 boats arrived for the PBC Academy Sports &
    Outdoors $10K Spring Team Bass Trail Qualifier #1. Surface water temps were around 46 to 54 degrees with light winds.

    The team of Paul Owens & Tyler Faggart located 5 good bass weighing a total of 24.54 lbs (which included an 8.67
    pounder) to take 1st Place, 1st Place Big Fish and 1st Place TWT for a total of $3,722 in prize money!
    The 2nd Place team of Jaime Fajardo & Josh hooks were plagued by motor cranking trouble all day but managed
    to catch 5 bass weighing 22.23 lbs. and along with winning the 2nd Place TWT they took home $1,392 in winnings.
    2nd Place Big Fish was caught by the 10th Place team of Matthew & Jay Fuhr and it weighed 8.41 lbs. and was
    worth $456 to bring their total winnings to $687.

    Only 53 bass were brought to the scales by 33 of the 79 teams! That's what the slot limit will do to a tournament!
    Plenty of slots were caught however. Shallow running jerk baits, crankbaits & spinnerbaits in the more shallow 4 to
    6' of water seemed to be the lures of choice.

    I want to thank Academy Sports & Outdoors along with all our other sponsors and all the anglers that participated.
    Our next tournament will be the 2019 PBC Hart's Custom Sets/Cashion Fishing Rods $5K Spring Team Bass Trail
    Qualifier #2 , Saturday March 9th at Falls Lake out of Ledge Rock Wildlife Ramp.
