Tournament #6: Jordan Lake

B. Everett Jordan Lake, NC

July 14, 2018


Welcome anglers to Event #6 of the 2018 CKA tournament season. The tournament will be held on Jordan Lake, a lake that has been fishing well this season – it has given up two 12 pound Largemouth Bass in the past 6 months!

Jordan Lake is fed from several large, fish-filled tributaries, primarily the Haw River to the northwest and New Hope Creek to the northeast. Standing timber, channels, grassy points and flats form much of the lake’s north and middle sections, while the Haw River channel and steep banks, grassy points and islands shape the lake’s lower and deeper half.

We will use a multi-launch format on Jordan Lake. See the list of allowed ramps at the bottom of the post. Keep in mind that launch or day-use fees apply at some areas. We are also using an earlier launch/earlier finish time in order to get anglers on the morning bite and to avoid heavier afternoon boat traffic.

As always, print your ID early, and fill in the code when it is released Friday night before the event.

Anglers will pay in cash for the event on Saturday morning at the Ebenezer Boat Launch between 4:15 and 5 am.

CKA Photo Gallery Update: Shearon Harris/KBF Trail

Hi everyone,

We are busy preparing for event #6 at Jordan Lake, the ToC prize package announcement, and the AOY/ROY updates. In the meantime, we updated our photo gallery with some unseen photographs from Harris, including a few of anglers on the water and folks socializing at the post-event check in. It was a tough bite but a fun day and CKA was grateful to host anglers from 6 different states who competed in both events. Thank you all again for attending.
