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.

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!!!
