Well well well. Event 4 of 9 took place on Badin Lake today. The lake had been on fire for a few weeks now and it didn’t disappoint today. Before we get into the recap I need to give a tremendous shout out to Joe’s Bait, Tackle & Guns LLC! We took the shop over for 3 hours last night, an hour at 4am today and a few hours this afternoon. Rodney, the owner of the shop could not have been a better host. He made us feel like home and we at QCKBF are greatly appreciative.
The event! We had another great turnout. 60 anglers came to play and take a run at that #qc1000 $1000. We launched at 6am with some scary skies and 300% humidity. Bad forecast for the day kept some anglers home, but the ones who braved the water were greeted with hungry fish today. It seemed to be a numbers day, with most anglers reporting catches of 15+fish. We all know someone will find the biggins on tourney day, and this season has proven that these lakes we fish hold some giants. 6 ramps were open today on beautiful badin lake. Anglers were spread out all over. Weigh in was back at Joe’s at 3pm. Cars rolling in, everyone in a good mood, excited they had limits. It was a great feeling.
Matt Hawj put a beatdown on us today and took home the $1000 with 75.75 inches. Congrats man!!!

Thank you to our amazing sponsors. We are able to give away some many prizes at every event.
Thank you to anyone who plays a helping hand in QCKBF. I was short handed today and my boys stepped up and it went perfect. Still keeping weigh in at an hour or lower. That’s a big deal.
Our next event is an interesting one. Its Mystery Tackle Box Mystery Lake Month. We will draw June 14th, in the evening. We fish June 16th. The lake is off limits on June 15th. No prefishing allowed. The lakes in the hat are Fishing Creek sc, Rhodhiss Lake, High Rock, and Tuckertown. I love the mystery format. Let’s do it!
We had a lot of new faces who said they had a blast. I hope you all continue to join us. We also had a woman fish with us as well! That’s awesome. I love watching this sport and this group grow. You guys are amazing.
