Boom!!!! Season 4 aka #qc1000, event 2 in the books! Let’s start off with a huge thank you to Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists of Charlotte and Luke Britzfor sponsoring the event and making the payouts the best around.
Lake Hickory…..where do we start. She’s a crazy lady. She was cold, muddy, colder, warmer, cold, clear, muddy, high, then normal, then on game day…..She goes stain, clear, mud, and……ultra low. They pulled the plug last night and dropped the lake about 2ft, OVERNIGHT!! It made it interesting and evened the playing field for sure.
We had 62 anglers join us at 5:45 this morning. The weather was perfect all day. Sunny, breezy, and 70+ degrees. Not sure you could ask for any better. We had a lot of fish weighed in, and we had a lot of FAT fish weighed in. Hickory showed out today, giving up not one, but two 21.5 inchers, and a few more over 20 as well! Only 13 limits came in, and we had 16 skunks. Lots a 2 and 3 fish guys. Crank baits seemed to be the ticket today for most. With 62 people we paid out the top 10. The winners are listed below. If you cashed, please post up your limit ASAP.
We gave away so many prizes during our raffles. Thank you to all of our amazing sponsors that help make QCKBF great.
