Boater Jeff Queen of Catawba, North Carolina, caught five bass weighing 22 pounds, 1 ounce, Saturday to win the 2018 T-H Marine FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) North Carolina Division opener on Lake Norman presented by Navionics. Queen earned $3,918 for his victory.

“I was fishing on the south end of the lake, targeting sandy flats and boat docks,” says Queen, who earned his third career win in BFL competition. “I like these early in the year tournaments because they fit my pattern real well.”

Queen caught his fish on two baits – a 3/8-ounce KJ Camo-colored Queen Tackle Flippin jig and a ½-ounce Greenpumpkin Green-colored Queen Tackle Hammerhead jig.

“I threw the Flippin jig around docks, and used the Hammerhead on the sandy flats,” Queen says. “The Hammerhead is a football-head jig that has a tungsten bead in the head, and it gives a crayfish clicking noise that makes the bass go crazy. I had it trailered with a Bizz Baits Cutter Craw and I was just imitating a crayfish as close as I could.”

The top 10 boaters:

1st:          Jeff Queen, Catawba, N.C., five bass, 22-1, $3,918

2nd:         Nick Miller, Terrell, N.C., five bass, 19-9, $2,344

3rd:         Preston Harris, State Road, N.C., five bass, 16-6, $1,638

4th:         Dylan Fulk, Concord, N.C., five bass, 15-5, $867

5th:         Alvin Shaw, Roaring Gap, N.C., five bass, 14-9, $744

6th:         Mark Carpenter, Lincolnton, N.C., five bass, 14-3, $682

7th:         Rob Digh, Denver, N.C., five bass, 14-1, $620

8th:         Doug Easton, Huntersville, N.C., five bass, 14-0, $558

9th:         Carson Orellana, Mooresville, N.C., five bass, 13-15, $496

10th:       Hank Cherry, Maiden, N.C., five bass, 13-13, $434

The T-H Marine FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) North Carolina Division event on Lake Norman presented by Navionics was hosted by the Mooresville Convention & Visitors Bureau.

The top 45 boaters and co-anglers in the region based on point standings, along with the five winners in each qualifying event, will be entered in the Oct. 11-13 BFL Regional Championship on the Chesapeake Bay in North East, Maryland. Boaters will compete for a top award of a Ranger Z518C with a 200-horsepower Evinrude outboard and $20,000, while co-anglers will fish for a new Ranger Z518C with a 200-horsepower Evinrude outboard.
