Atkins and Atkins take Day 1 Lead on Falls Lake District 4 Qualifier.
The next stop for the 2018 post season District Events was on Fall Lake in Durham, North Carolina. We were welcomed by Ashleigh Bachert and Erin Blaine from the Durham Sports Commission. Ridgecrest Baptist Church was gracious to host our Thursday night banquet and provide an awesome spread of food for the anglers. Our good friend Chris Wells from WellSpoken Ministry shared an inspirational message. He spoke on 5 key points on how to make sure you are on track to follow Christ.
We had 43 teams blast off on Friday morning. The weather was not looking good for the day the cool 40-degree temperatures were accompanied with rain all day and variable winds. Almost all teams were able to squeak out a few fish, but nothing like Falls is accustom to producing. Limits were far and few between.
Teams are trying to make the top 9 spots along with the top qualifying Male/Female and Adult/Junior teams to qualify for the National Championship on Lake Hartwell in South Carolina. After Day 1 the cut weight for 9th place was 8.70 pounds. Day one leaders with 12.70lbs are Matt Atkins and Chris Atkins. Not far behind in second place is Jeremy Moody & Lucas Lobaugh with 12.03lbs. Rounding out the top three is David Farman & Allen Farman with 11.06lbs. The Big Fish for Day one was caught by Calton Hall a 6.68lb large mouth.
With the weights so close together it’s still any teams shot to make it in the top 9 and qualify for the national Championship. Check back tomorrow to see who was able to put together another good catch to qualify.
