Leesville BASSMasters fished our fourth tournament at Jordan Lake near Apex, NC. Temps were in the mid 60s at blast off with partly cloudy skies, rising to the upper 70s by weigh-in with mostly cloudy skies. Water temps were in the low 70s. While rain was forecast, it held off for the day with sprinkles just starting to show up when we left for home.
All but one of our anglers brought fish to the scales today. After all fish had been weighed in, Mark Cannon chalked up his second win for the 2019 season with a five fish limit of 12.20 lbs. Following in second was Wes House (5 fish, 10.04 lbs) and Mike "Polecat" Pelchat (3 fish, 9.33 lbs) took third. Polecat also took big fish honors for the day with a 6.92 lbs tank, which regrettably arrived to the scales DOA. However, the big girl won't be going to waste...Polecat took her home for a swim in the hot grease jacuzzi.
Our next tournament takes us to Falls Lake on June 1. The fish at Falls should be emerging from the post-spawn and transitioning toward their typical summertime haunts. Falls also marks our transition from a 3PM to 2PM weigh-in during the summer months.
