|Maiden fishermen win at Falls of Neuse with heavy bag.
April 24 at 4:11 pm
The 99 teams in the April 20 Carolinas Bass Challenge N.C. Division tournament knew they would need a stringer of 20 pounds or more if they wanted to take the top prize at Falls of the Neuse Lake. For the past two weeks, 20-pound stringers have been brought to the scales with startling frequency in other tournaments on the Raleigh-Durham area lake.
Four teams wound up reaching the coveted 20-pound mark, despite a cold front and high winds.
Gerald Williams and David Williams of Maiden topped the field with 21.62 pounds, a haul anchored with a 6.42-pound bass. The two anglers received $8,000.
|Thomasville couple wins Adam & Eve tourney on Badin
April 16 at 8:10 pm
For those with superstitious leanings, April 13 might be a day of misgivings, but for Neil and Pat McDonald of Thomasville, the date marked the couple’s first victory on the Adam & Eve Trail.
The McDonalds topped a field of 23 teams at Badin Lake with a 5-fish catch totaling 16 pounds, 3 ounces that was anchored with a 4-pound, 7-ounce bass. They caught their fish with plastic worms fishing rocky structure in four to five feet of water. Their victory paid $287.
“We had our limit soon after taking off from the Lakemont Landing,” said Pat. “We’ve had second- and third-place finishes on the trail, but this is the first time we’ve won a tournament.”
|Mt. Pleasant angler 'bridges' his problem, wins at High Rock
April 10 at 7:59 am
Mt. Pleasant’s Steve Dyer resorted to “sinking his bass boat” and to negotiate his way to victory at the April 6 Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Weekend Series N.C. Division tournament at High Rock Lake.
Dyer wanted to fish in Flat Swamp Creek, but with High Rock experiencing high water, the railroad bridge across the mouth of the creek is normally too close to the water to allow the passage of any boats.
“I had to fill my boat with water to weigh it down and lean low to sneak under the Flat Swamp Bridge,” said Dyer, who pulled the drain plug to allow enough water into the hull to lower the boat’s profile enough to get it under the bridge.
The strategy paid off with a 5-fish catch of 19.57 pounds taken by fishing rocky structure in 10 feet of water with Zoom Super Hog creature baits and True South jigs in the Dyer-special green pumpkin color. His biggest bass weighed 6.14 pounds.
|Rocky Mount duo conquer Gaston for March 30 CATT win
April 03 at 11:04 am
Even though there was a lull in bass tournament activity over the Easter weekend, some circuits kept fishermen busy looking for bass rather than Easter eggs.
In some instances, Easter eggs were easier to locate.
Fishermen at the March 30 Carolina Anglers Team Trail T.O.M. CATT event at Lake Gaston experienced a special treat; they got to enjoy sunshine and warm temperatures instead of the cold, wet and windy weather that has plagued tournament competitors throughout most of March.
Justis Bobbitt of Edenton and Bob Williams of Rocky Mount topped the 25-team field with a 5-fish catch of 20.45 pounds, which got them $1,309.
