Today is a big day if you are a QCKBF member. Today marks Event 7 of the 2020 season. Your 7th opportunity to earn points in the The Angler Magazine Charlotte NC AOY and TOC race. The standings will really get shaken up when event 8 and 9 add drops into the mix!!
Today we visited High Rock Lake for the first time as a club. Our sponsor for this event was Rock Outdoors, and wow, they did an amazing job hosting us. It was a pleasure to work with Jordan Stogner Lanham and Shane Dublin, and I hope we get this opportunity again in 2021.
We had 69 anglers come out and fish today, bringing our monthly average to 93 anglers!! WOW! The lake was tough today, but some big bass and big bags were posted up for sure. We had 19 limits today, and 20 skunks, with 30 people catching 1,2, or 3 bass.
We launched at 5:30am and broke a sweat by the time we were able to cast at 6am. It was a hot day, with the wind picking up around 10am. The water was between 82-88 degrees, with stain throughout the lake. With 5 ramps open, we had anglers spread out from the river to the dam, battling boats and jet skis. When last submission hit at 3pm, the results were in.
Landing in first was Tim Always Cashin Sabella with a huge limit of 75.75 inches. Congrats on your $1100 Tim! Tim said he lost a fish that would have topped the 80 inch mark!! Man o Man.
Grinding and catching fish all day was Chase Helms in 2nd place. Chase has a solid bag at 70.75, anchored by his Emerald School of Excellence Big Bass at 22inches. He took home a total of $865!! Congrats kid!
Taking home his first QC cash today in third was the Baby Gangsta himself, Brian BG Brakefield. Brian had 69 inches and won $465!
MikeandNiki Hicks shakes the dust off and snatches his first QC cash in 6th place with 64.25 earning $165 today. Larry Wood rounds out the cash spots in 7th with 63.75 earning $100. Bubble boy Tyler Smith lands in 8th with 63.50 and the tiebreak for a free entry into the next event on Santee.
Congrats to all of the winners today. Ryan Hulsey will get the standings updated and posted.
Our next event is another new lake for QC. Home of giant bass, Santee Cooper Sc on July 25th. I will make the event ASAP, I need some time to find all of the ramps for this one.
Thank you all for being a part of QCKBF. If you need anything, let me know.
