Big Fish hunt for the year- Mark Butner 6.91lbs
Like to give a shout out to Mr. Weather man, calling for strong to severe thunderstorms Saturday so we voted and changed the tournament to Sunday. Saturday, warm, no wind and only a couple of showers. Sunday cold with the 15-25mph sustained winds, and the 40+ mph gusts made it a miserable day on the water.
Now to the results from Falls lake 3/30/14, a few of the teams were not able to make it sin...ce it was changed to Sunday, so, taking home 1st place was Jeff Quint and Jeff Taylor with 3 fish weighing in at 6.99lbs, they also took home the big fish payout for their 2.70lber. Second place again went to Mark Butner and Eddie West with 2 fish worth 4.00lbs. Congratulations to Jeff & Jeff for their hard earned win and big fish.
We would also like to welcome 2 new members to the club, Brian Vertefeuille and Billy Hazlett who fished their first tournament with us at Falls Sunday. Our next tournament will be at Badin Lake 4/26/14, we are still needing more members, so if anyone may be interested, let us know.
We will be changing the tournament at Falls from Saturday to Sunday due to the threat of severe thunderstorms Saturday, 7:30 to 3:30. We will be at Carolina Diner in Archdale at 4:30 if anyone is coming that way and wants to stop in for breakfast
3-15-14 Falls Lake
Falls tournament was pretty much a duplicate of the February High Rock tournament with just a couple of more pounds being caught for 1st and 2nd place. Once again, Phillip and Ryan Perkins brought the heaviest weight to the scales to take home 1st place, weighing in a nice bag for 18.19lbs. Mark Butner and Eddie West finished 2nd again with one fish weighing in at 6.91lbs which also took big fish honors for the day, barely nudging out Phillip and Ryan's biggest fish of 6.65lbs. No fish were weighed in after 2nd place. Again, congratulation go out to Phillip and Ryan for their win. Our next tournament will again be held on Falls lake March 29, start time will be posted closer to the tournament date.

Feb. 22,2014- High Rock
Once again Phillip and Ryan Perkins takes the lead with the first tournament of 2014 bringing 5 nice fish to the scales for a total weight of 16.27lbs for the win. They also brought in the big fish for the day at 4.57lbs., great catch for Phillip and Ryan on what turned out to be a tough day for everyone else. Mark Butner and Eddie West took 2nd place with only 2 fish weighing in at of 4.27lbs. The remainder of the competitors all tied for 3rd place with no keepers being caught. It was a tough day for most of us but it was great to get started back and spending time on the water.
We would like to welcome our new members this year, Austin Sykes, Shane Teeter and Chris Eudy, it was nice meeting you guys and we look forward to the year ahead.
Our next tournament will be at Falls Lake on March 15, we will post the start time as we get closer to that date, see you all then.
