The Falls Lake event presented by Greensboro Gardens was hot and a grind! This is the type of event were the hard core fisherman come out to play and put in work! Congrats to all of you that got through the event – and safely – on a busy boating day on the lake! A lot of CKA regulars were out of town battling in Florida and just getting back from the BASS Kayak Championship, but we still managed 52 anglers on Father’s Day weekend!
Rick Rowland won the event with 86.25″ with a 20.25″ kicker – Rick had a small limit early, and then he was able to find a spot where the bigger fish were roaming around and occasionally would bite. Great job as usual for Rick who always seems to be able to dial in a bite throughout the day! $875 payday!
2nd Place went to another consistent hammer Joey Sullivan with 83.25″. Joey won the Tournament of Champions in 2019 on Falls Lake, and is always a threat in any kayak event – fresh water, salt water, he probably could find a pattern in the middle of the Sahara if you gave him enough time. Joey also wins a Pair of Solar Bat Sunglasses! $525 payday!
3rd Place went to new kayak angler Seth Lubinski, who battled through the day for a total of 82.75″ besting some of the other hammers in the field in what he claimed is a “cheap kayak” – pricey kayaks don’t catch fish guys and gals – anglers do! Great job Seth! Seth also wins a $50 YakAttack Gift Certificate! $350 payday!
Big fish went to Bobby Bowers with a 22.50″ Falls Lake toad worth $450! Bobby also ended up in the top 10. Congratulations Bobby!
