    Saturday June 16th, 2018 ~ Falls Lake ~ Ledge Rock Wildlife Ramp

    What a great day for the 78 teams fishing for the $10,000 1st place prize money in the 2018 PBC Academy Sports &
    Outdoors $10,000 Spring Team Bass Trail Championship at Falls Lake! Morning air temp was around 69 degrees then
    warmed up to 88 in the pm. Water temps averaged about 86 degrees. Winds were light all day! The lake level was right
    at 252 and water clarity was good. Bass were shallow in the morning and then moved out to around 6 to 12' when the sun
    came up. After everyone was weighed in the polygraph was given. Then all the anglers were treated to hot dogs, chips
    and drinks! Then we gave away over $7,000 in door prizes thanks to our great sponsors!!! Then awarded the prize
    money & trophies! PBC had a great year and thanks to all that supported this great trail.

    Dan Glosson & Scottie Morris topped the field weighing in 5 bass at 25.77 lbs. winning 1st Place and 1st Place TWT to
    take home a whopping $11,925 in prize money. The team found the fish early in 2' to 4' of grassy water using worm rigs
    and later on crankbaits. They had 5 solid fish!
    Sam & Matthew Jones took 2nd Place with 5 fish weighing 25.70 lbs. and won the 1st Place Big Fish (7.88 lbs.) to take
    home $2,421 in winnings. The 3rd Place Team of Stephen Lasher & Chad Fara weighed in 5 at 22.54 lbs. and also won
    the 2nd Place TWT to pocket $1,644. 2nd Place Big Fish was won by the 16th Place Team of Stewart Adams & Scott
    Dunn (7.84 lbs.) netting them $583 in prize money!!

    The 2018 PBC Academy Sports & Outdoors $10,000 Spring Team Bass Trail Points Champions belonged to the team of
    Jaime Fajardo & Josh Hooks. They took home $1,000 for that and also won 6th Place in the Championship for $490!!

    257 fish were weighed in for a total of 800 pounds for an average of 3.11 lbs. each, a good average for Falls Lake even
    with a cold front that had moved in a few days before! Most of the fish were caught on Carolina & Texas worm rigs and
    crankbaits in anywhere from 2 to 12 feet of water. Warm weather is here so look for a morning shallow bite and then go
    deeper when the sun comes up! Don't believe the naysayers...Falls Lake is doing just fine.
