Event 8 Lake Norman

What a great event 8 today. We started out at Denver Tackle Co. At 4:45am. Troy Lehew was an awesome host today ! We packed the shop with 59 anglers.The weather was great. Cool in the morning with almost no wind. It warmed up and then the pleasure boaters came out, making Norman rough waters.The bite was good for most. We weighed in a ton of fish, over 50 limits I think. I heard of many anglers catching 20+ fish. The trick is capitalizing on those big bites when they happen. Chris Goodwin was able to prove today that he is not human. He has claimed another #QC1000. He wins the KFWC event on Norman with 67.25inches. Congrats bro!!Eric Carroll had a solid 67inch bag to take home $500 for 2nd place! Commish rounds out the top 3 with 66inches today worth $336.

2nd Annual Kiddie Rod Event

Wow. What an amazing, epic, historic event happened here in the Queen City tonight. Yes the Kiddie rod event was a hit, but, the ribbon was cut on the first ever South East recovery high school. Here in our city. Emerald School of Excellence is open for buisness, and Queen City Kayak Bass Fishing LLC was holding the ribbon at the ceremony.

Lets start at 5am on MIL. Well….MIL again lol. 37 anglers showed up eager to cast 29inch push button, character rods. Read that again. 37!!!! Kiddie rods in hands. Smiles, jokes, all around happy and childish, in a good way, environment. We launch at 6am. Not sure what was to be expected. MIL, August, 88 degree water at 6am. If we have learned anything in 5 years its that someone will catch them! It was fun to sit back and watch the guys weigh in today. Brad Cox took over for me as I prepped the food and stuff. The excitement, the stories. All around fun.

Before we announced all top 6 cashing spots, we had a great meal on the grill Jacob Earnhardt cooked 40 hamburgers and 40 hotdogs for all. Along with chips, cold drinks and good company, the building was lit up.

When the smoke settled, Chris Goodwin continued his dominance. He had a solid limit of 60.5inches. Enough for 1st place. He also won the Yak Bass’nsmall bass pot with 6.5inches. He then got lucky in his raffle and won the Slayer XC from @Native Watercraft, and the paddle from @bending branches When its your day, its your day!!! Congrats man!!!!
2nd place went home to last year’s Kiddie rod champ. Jason Lowe. He had 60inches today and went home with a sweet prize pack. 3rd place, the current MIL champ Graham Reay. 56.5in. Congrats!!! 4th place Fat Larry back in the mix. Aka Jason West. 56.25. 5th place, a guy we all like to give a hard time, but hes now rocking back to back cashes. Nick Huddleston. 55.5in. Sneaking into the top 6 Hal Brawley with 50.75! 
Anglers went home with Custom Emeralds, baits from TrueSouth Custom LuresBizz Baits412 Bait CoLine Out Custom Tackle LOCTTRC CoversHoo-Rag. Items from Rusty Hooks Bait and TackleBending Branches, @libertyoutdoors, and of course @native. Our Big bass pot was split today. The Jason’s each had a 19inch and split the entry into the Sept event.

As a club we raised $1520 today for ESE. Joey Randall also raised another $60 via Corn hole event at the BBQ. Congrats Jacob on that win.

The ribbon cutting tonight, combined with the tour was phenomenal. It meant the world to me that Chris, Jacob, Ryan HulseyFat LarryMelissa SwitekLarry CriderVan Barkley, all stayed through the entire thing. It was hot, and late. But you supported who supports us. Thank you again.

I guess its a good time to drop some news….Emerald will be a Title Sponsor in 2020!

We have a full month to forget MIL, I mean recover. We are at Lake Norman next month presented by KFWC and Santiago. We will be being hosted by @denver Tackle co. See you all then !!

Event 7 Mountian Island Lake Presented by Installing The Holidays

Another great event today. The 7th installment of the 2019 season. This event was presented by Installing The Holidays and we fished on MIL aka Mountain Island Lake. Reports a few weeks back were amazing. Lake on fire, big fish coming out, eating all baits…..well…today proved all that wrong. Fish were tough to come by for most. Big fish were few and far between. We started the day at 430am and we had 68 anglers come to compete for the monthly #qc1000 today. The weather was nice, clear skies, no wind, but it got warm. The water was 5-6 ft vis in most areas of the lakes. Reports from anglers had fish being caught on a variety of topwater presentations and a variety of soft plastics.

When it all shook out at 3pm, we added another winner to the train win wall. Graham Reay snatched his FIRST SATURDAY WIN today. So awesome. Super happy for him. He puts the work in month after month and he has been cashing checks these days! He wins today with 66.25 which includes the Emerald School of Excellence big bass prize with a 19.75 inchers. He walks away with $1225. 
Chris Goodwin keeps hot this month. He lives on MIL, fished it hard in preparation for this event and it all paid off today with a 2nd place finish worth $561. Ronnie Murphy is impressing the club with his consistent fishing every month. He wraps up 3rd and takes home $374. Nick Huddlestonhasn’t seen or lost to many 30inchers this month ;). He stayed to himself and cashed a big 4th place check today bringing home $265. Tim always cashing Sabella takes the Rusty Hooks Bait and Tackle free entry and turns it into a top 5 finish worth $180. Matt Hawj and PC Hawj continue amazing fish and take home 6th and 7th. Jay Park didn’t win a raffle so he figured he take home 8th place today! an Ab Vang jumps into 9th place and Jason Lowe plays bubble boy rounding out the top 10 for a free entry into the KFWC event on Norman. Congrats guys!!!!! If you cashed please post pics.

Matt and PC take home the MIL team division win today. Earning another $100. Thank you Lakeside Barbers and Hands On Installations.

Andy Myers goes back to back Yak Bass’n small bass 🏆 He catches a 5.25 worth $390!

Things get interesting in Sept. 7 events are in, the drops start now. Will you sneak into the Dynamic Health AOY race? Will you sneak into the top 15 TOC. We will be fishing for $4000* .
Will you earn a fish off seat? Jump into the wildcard? Who knows what Norman and Wylie will do to the standings. Going to be fun to watch.

I want to give a huge thank you to Ryan HulseyBradMary Ferreri, and Ezzy Ferreri. Weigh-in was smooth as always. Quick and easy. Great food provided by ITH. Amazing.

We don’t have a trail event in Aug. We are fishing a charity event, benefiting Emerald School. Its a Kiddie rod event. Character push-button rods. Haha. Should be fun. Jason is the current kiddie rod champ. Will he be dethroned? Grand prize is a @nativewatercraft Slayer XC!!!! $40 entry fee. Takes place on MIL again (maybe changing) weigh-in, food, and ribbon cutting will be at Emerald school!!!

Anything you need just let me know. Ryan will be posting all results under files.

Event 6 Lake Hartwell Presented by Air One Heating and Air

Big day for the club. Over 2 hours away from home for most of us and we still pulled 62 anglers! It was awesome seeing a bunch of new guys, and some guys I only see once in a while. Between Grady’s Great Outdoors and AirOne Heating and Air everything was awesome. Lowell Brannanwelcomed us to his lake, and at the end of the day, I think most guys had fun. After getting off the water, fresh hot BBQ was waiting for the hungry anglers. Hit the spot. 
Weds-saturday about 20 QC guys were camping in town and I gotta say, it was a blast hanging with you all off the water.

When the fishing started the weather was nice. Cool, calm and a good morning bite for most. Wind picked up a little, and the sun got warm, but all in all, mother nature cooperated.

Before I get into the winners I need to thank everyone who helps me during the day. My hands on team of Brad Cox and Ryan Hulsey. Perfect teamwork for sign in and weigh in. Jason Lowe, always willing to lend a hand, or a TV to the club. KeriandRyan Ratliff for grilling at 11pm last night. Guys who set the banner up, take pictures, see who’s coming in late. Its all very important and I just want you to know it doesn’t go unnoticed. Thank you.

So who took home the #Qc1000? This guy is a sponge. Learning at every moment. Working so hard. Practicing a ton. He was a nervous wreck when he grabbed his plaque today and im super happy for him. Mr. Chris Goodwintakes it down with 65inches! He edged out the current Dynamic Health AOY leader PC Hawj. Third goes home with David Golding. Ryan Hulsey continues running hot and snatches 4th. Jamie Swaney rounds out the top 5! Congrats on the big money boys! The rest of the standings will be posted by Ryan.

The Yak Bass’n small bass pot was worth $480 today and was a battle. Two 6inch bass were weighed in, and then bam, two 4.25inchers hit the table haha. Ronnie Mr Big Bass and Andy Myers split it up! 
The Emerald School of Excellence big bass pot was also a nail biter. 3 anglers tied with 19.75. Joey RandallJohnny Barrett and Ryan Hulsey. Congrats guys. 
Chris and Joey took home the June Team event this month. Thank you Lakeside Barbers and Hands On Installations
Plenty of raffle prizes went home today as usual.

6 events down. 3 left before we crown an Angler of the Year and we all fight for the championship. Full daily and yearly standings will be posted later.

We are at Mountain Island Lake next month. I will make the event page at some point this week. I am on vacation and hopefully off the grid most of this upcoming week.

If you cashed please post your fish. Thx all! You are all awesome.

Event 5 Badin Lake Presented by Joe’s Bait & Tackle

Here we are…..
“Half way” kinda, through season 5. Its been a great year so far. We hit up Badin Lake today. Sign in and weigh in took place at the great Joes Bait Tackle and Guns. They are an amazing host and we are proud to call them a Title Sponsor. We closed up sign in at 5am with another solid showing of 63 anglers.

6am launch. Most guys knew the lake would be packed. A large charity event, a crappie event, and at least one other local club event. Well….Badin needed a boat limit today. The traffic was horrible. Glitter rockets, jet skis, more jet skis, wake boards, pontoons. Man o man. Tough day to be on the water. I felt like I was fishing off shore all day.

Regardless of the traffic, rumors were the lake was on 🔥. It proved to fish fairly well. A good amount of fish weighed in with plenty of big ones.

Austin Vang continues his hot streak today and claims the coveted #qc1000. Congrats dude! 
Matt Hawj never fails to find them and took home second place today, over $500. My boy Shelly Efird made a guest appearance and must have kidnapped Joey Sullivan, they go 3, 4, as expected from these hammers. Teng Yang rounds out the top 5 this month! 10 guys cashed today. Its always exciting to see new guys like Jeremy Hughes cashing! Congrats! The top 10 is in the pictures.

Ronnie Murphy is a big bass hunter!! He catches ANOTHER giant. 22.25, for the QCKBF big bass lead for the season. That tank propelled him into 6th place today. Thank you Emerald School of Excellence for the plaque. Big Iron Taxidermy, I have a feeling you will be making this guy a mount!

The Yak Bass’n small bass was 7.75 and went home with Arnie. Almost $500!!!! Hysterical.

The PC Hawj Matt Hawj combo lead to their first team victory. They took home $100 cash for that and have extended their lead on the Lakeside Barbers/ @hands on installation Team division. Congrats boys.

We gave away a ton of items today. Thank you to our club sponsors.

All standings have been posted. AOY/TOC is heating up. Top 15 gets to fish the championsip, and top 10 get to compete for another $1000 against the Navy.

We visit new water for QC next month on the beautiful Lake Hartwell. Grady’s Great Outdoors will be hosting us for pre regi on Friday night before, sign in morning of, and weigh in, along with….drumroll, FEEDING US some amazing BBQ. Be sure to be there. AirOne Heating and Air is presenting this event, lets show out. I will work on ramps and event page asap.

We raffled off a kayak today that was donated by Aaron Miller in an effort to raise money for Mike Little and his mother. We raised a lot of money and Tim Sabella was lucky enough to go home with a sweet Kaku 12.5 outfitted with LED lights!! Congrats Tim!!!

Anything you need, hit me up.

You all took amazing pictures today. Maybe 1 penalty. Great day to judge. Thank you.
