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.
Here are scenes from the Day 1 weigh-in of the 2015 Carhartt College Eastern Regional on Lake Norman presented by Bass Pro Shops.
Lake Norman showed out for the 2015 Carhartt Bassmaster College Series Eastern Regional presented by Bass Pro Shops and UNC Charlotte shined brightest on Day 1 with 16 pounds 12 ounces.

East Carolina anglers Ronnie Moore and TJ Chafatelli starts the day off with a good one!
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.
Jake Whittaker and Andrew Helms have already qualified for the 2015 National Championship by winning the 2014 National Championship. They're only here for bragging rights but sometimes those are more important.
