2018 NC BASS Nation State Team

For the 2nd time in 3 years I’ve made the NC BASS Nation State Team. Earlier this month I fished a qualifying tournament on Lake Gaston as a co-angler. The top 3 finishers of that tournament qualified to be on the NC BASS Nation State Team and fish the BASS Nation Regional Championship on the Waccamaw River next spring.

To say I’m pumped about it would be an understatement. I am essentially 2 tournaments away from the Bassmaster Classic. I had a great Day 1 of the tournament weighing in over 8lbs of bass including a 4.5lb stud I caught first thing in the morning on a Dirty Jigs Tackle jig. I had a great boater both days that I really learnt a lot from also.

I finished Day 1 in second place and 4lbs behind the leader. I knew I needed a great day the second day to keep pace… I fished as hard as I possibly could and didn’t let off the gas at all. I finished the tournament with a 2 day limit of just under 14lbs, won second place, took home $700 in winnings and now have the opportunity to fish my 2nd BASS Nation Regional Championship on the Waccamaw River near Myrtle Beach, SC.

In 2015 I qualified for the state team and had the opportunity to fish in Tennessee on Douglas Lake. That was an experience I’ll never forget and this next tournament will be just as awesome!
