    Finally!!! The bite was on for the 87 teams in the 2018 PBC Academy Sports & Outdoors $10,000 Spring Team Bass
    Trail Qualifier #6 at Falls Lake! Bass are starting the final phase of the spawn and it showed in the amount and
    poundage of bass caught in one of the best lakes in NC!! Morning air temp was 64 degrees then warmed up to 90 in the
    pm. Water temps averaged about 79 degrees. Winds were light all day! The lake level was right at 252 with water
    coming in and being released at about the same amount. Bass were shallow in the morning and then moved out to around
    6 to 10' when the sun came up.

    Josh Fletcher & Bryson Peed dominated the field weighing in 5 bass at 27.46 lbs. winning 1st Place and $1,450 in prize
    money. The team found the fish early in 2' to 4' of grassy water using worm rigs and flipping plastics. They had 5 solid
    fish! Ronnie Hart & Danny Woodell took 2nd place with 5 fish weighing 22.88 lbs., 1st Place TWT and 1st Place Big Fish
    (8.53 lbs.) to take home $3,664 in winnings. We had a tie for 3rd between the teams of Travis Pomp & Eddie Harris and

    363 fish were weighed in for a total of 1,085 pounds for an average of 3.02 lbs. each, a great average weight for Falls
    Lake! Most of the fish were caught on spinnerbaits, chatterbaits, worm rigs, flippin' plastics and shallow running
    crankbaits in anywhere from 2 to 10 feet of water. Warm weather is here so look for a morning shallow bite and then go
    deeper when the sun comes up! Most all teams weighed in fish today!! Congrats to all !!!
