Day 1 leaders get started

Mar 27, 2015

A wet and cold Day 2 morning greeted anglers as they set out on Lake Norman. A 100 percent chance of rain today with a high in the low 50s. That's going to make the conditions uncomfortable for anglers to fish in, but should have these fish biting. With 87 limits yesterday, not sure they can bite any better. But the big ones may get active today.

The champs

Mar 26, 2015

UNC Charlotte's Jake Whittaker and Andrew Helms won the 2014 National Championship, automatically qualifying for the 2015 National Championship. Only one condition, they had to remain a team. One angler couldn't move on without he other unless they went back and qualified through the regional this week. No worries, these two are a team and they're glad to be back, together.
