QCKBF Event 5 Presented by Mystery Tackle Box

Event 5 is over. The Mystery Event presented by Mystery Tackle Box is always a fun event. Not knowing where we will end up. Not being able to plan or practice. It adds a new level to the game. Usually at this point of the season we are looking towards the finish line. Usually only 2 events left, drops start now etc. Well 2018 we changed it up. We added two events. The main reason for that was because of summer fishing. Some wanted to eliminate summer events. Some wanted to keep them. So I added two events, and added a drop, in turn giving you the opportunity to skip summer fishing. I think some people took advantage of that this month. Mystery draw usually scares a few off, plus the drive, plus the 200 degrees outside. We had 47 come play today. Regardless, the excitement of $1000 was still in the air. We launched at 530am, four ramps on beautiful lake Rhodhiss were open. Guys were spread out really well. Not a breeze in the air, glass water. Some guys reported great top water bites, and some didn’t get a sniff. We didn’t have a ton of bass caught today, and most the fish that were caught were on the small side. Fish didnt seem to picky about what they ate tho. Junk fishing for most guys. At the end of the day PC Hawj laid the smack down on the bass, and us. He had the only 70inch limit and walked away with the #1000. Not very close behind him was Andy Myers with 63inches good enough for $430. Rounding out the top 3, Melvin Yang with 60.5 worth $290!
4th- Kevin Wilkinson 60.25- $150
5th- Matt Hawj 60.25- $120
6th- Lowell Brannan 60- $80
7th- Matthew Boone 59.5- $50
8th- Saturday Mel 59.25- free entry

Our Emerald School of Excellence Big Bass went home with Tracy Stanfordand his 20 inch pig! He took home $230.
Our Yak Bass’n and HOW small bass pot went up with the Co Commish Buster Swisher. A 7.25inch worth $125. Buster also won the smallest limit award and has a chance to recover with some Scivation!
The Pro Image Sports team event went home with Kevin Wilkinson and Zach Clark. They each earn $50 to ProImage Sports. Commish and Co commish took second, worth $20 each to ProImage.

It was so hot today people had their phones in coolers at the weigh in so they would cool down and work. I had to put the AC in my car on during weigh in so Buster and I could get our phones to work. Summer fishing is tough. The grind of waking up at 130am today. Fishing all day. Standing at the weigh in. Give yourself a pat on the back if you did it and made it all the way to 3pm. I always have a blast with you guys. Thank you for fishing with Queen City Kayak Bass Fishing. Our next event is Installing The Holidaysevent 6 on Lake James. July 28th. Ramps, times, etc will all be posted this week. The sponsor and myself are working on a few things.

Please take a second and give pur sponsors a like on FaceBook. These companies give us so much stuff to give away at every event. (See pics below).

The drops are coming and the AOY/TOC race is getting interesting. Will you make the top 15 event!? Dont give up. Anything can happen!

P.s. huge thank you to Ryan Dills and Ryan Hulsey for handing the boards today. I need extra hands. Time to hire someone.

MT. ISLAND Sunday Shootout

Mountain Island Lake woke up from its dream and sucked again hahaha.
They pulled the lake down over night and most people struggled today. We did have 13 come out today which was awesome for a Sunday on memorial day weekend with little notice.

We ended up trying out MLF “style”, in other words we did a 10 fish limit with a 12 inch min.
Being a Sunday we dont weigh everyone in, only people close or in the money so I only know who finished top 4. 
Tim Sabella had the only 10 fish bag for 156 inches, with a Big Bass tie of 18inches. He took home a total of $210.
Adam Fillmore aka Hunt Fish Paddle took home 2nd with 94 inches and won $80 .
Commish landed in 3rd and Josh Rose in 4th. Josh also split big bass with Tim.

Congrats guys!

Had fun. More Sunday’s coming soon.
Wasnt a huge fan on MLF. Maybe simply because we are used to looking for big bites. I dont know. Not sure I’ll wanna do that style again.

QCKBF Event 4 Presented by Joe’s Bait, Tackle & Guns

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!!!
The winning limits this season are tremendous.

2nd place goes home with John Ladd with 71.5 inches worth $528. John has been fishing hot this season and is going to be tough to catch in the AOY race.

4th place, fishing in a pink swifty, David Cheek with 68.25 worth $200.
5th place and Emerald School of Excellence big bass goes to the loud mouth 12 year old, Riley Mcdonald!!!! He stuck a 22.5inch MONSTER. He takes the Big Iron Taxidermy free mount lead for the season and took home $430!!!! And some hardware

We were able to donate another $175 to HOW today. Jake P wins the Yak Bass’n small bass with a 6.75 in worth $175.

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.

Files will be uploaded as I finish them.

Kiddie Rod Event

Wow!!! What a day! QCKBF had its 1st annual Kiddie Rod Event today! We we’re raising money for Emerald School of Excellence and Kayak Fishing With Christ. I gotta say……it could not have went any better!!!! What blast it was seeing everyone show up at 5am with 3 ft poles and push button reels. All the guys were in s good mood, laughing, talking, sh*t talking as always. The weather couldn’t have been better either, cool, clouds, light breeze. Set up under the lights we had 15 people show up to fish. We raised over $500 in the name of charity today.
Launch comes at 610am and everyone takes off as usual, kiddie rods in hands.

At the end of the day Jason Lowe kicked our…..well, you know. He brought in 73.75 inch bag on the Dock Demon!!!! His bag was anchored by a 20.75 big bass winner pig!!! He broke his personal best not once, but twice today!!! On the kiddie rod!!! Amazing. Congrats man, super happy for you . Jason wins a Ncpierman Taramelli red fish trip, a custom PersonaForm Designskiddie Jersey, a sweet photo shoot with Mike Constable and a ton of other prizes!!! He also wins a Blackjack Rod Co. For big bass!!! And he won $50 cash from the side pot!
2nd place went home with the commish today. 62.75 inches. Anchoring his prize pack was a trip with Neal Drakage to catch come huge smallmouth bass, and will look good doing it because he also won the Lakeside Barberscut and shave!
Rounding out the top 3, Tammy-Josh Neal with 60.5. He fishes for free next event at Badin Lake, and took home a ton of amazing lures and prize packs. David Golding was the highest hobie finisher in 4th place, and claimed the #regifted hobie buff. David and Tracy won the team side pot today. Our top 3 anglers today were all in Native Watercraft slayer propels Yak Bass’nSmall bass was a tie today between Tracy Stanford and Zach Clark, both with a 9 inch stud! Usually a tie results in a split, being we always fish for money….wellllllll….Manley Fishing rod was up for grabs, and tha would be tough to split. We settled it like an old school argument and flipped a coin! Haha. Zach takes the rod and Tracey the Hat!

I cant thank the companies who donated prizes enough. It’s the prizes that make this event fun!

So many bass were caught today it was insane. MIL showed out, and so did the amazing QC crew. Thank you all for being who you are. Let’s keep this QC train rollin. This event will now be a staple in the QC schedule going forward.
