37 teams showed up for the 3rd qualifying tournament of the 2013 Piedmont Bass Classics 'End of Year' Team 

Tournament Bass Fishing Trail. The weather was great! 74 degrees in the morning with South winds at 5 mph 

and getting up to about 88 degrees in the pm.

The team of Vernon Fleming & Glenn Long took 1st place honors with 5 bass weighing 17.45 lbs. and took 

home $1,006. Chris Bullock & Robert Perkins won 2nd place (17.01 lbs.) plus 1st place TWT taking home 

$1,227!! 3rd place team (15.60 lbs.) of Dennis Reedy & Tommy Marrow also won 2nd place TWT & 1st place 

Big Fish and took home $1,191, so the money was really spread out on this event!

92 fish were weighed in for a total weight of 235 pounds. Big fish for the day was 5.05 lbs. with a close 2nd 

place fish of 5.04! The quality fish were caught in 2 to 8 feet of water on a variety of baits including crankbaits, 

spinnerbaits, jigs and c-rigs for the most part. Water temps were around 85 degrees. 

Kerr Lake is getting back to its old self with some quality fish weighed in and Kerr's future looks good. I want 

to thank all the anglers that participated and that support this trail.
