50 teams competed in this past weekends event on the Neuse River but none were better then Adam and Tim Harris who won the tournament with a bag of bass that tipped the scales at over 17lbs. With several days of rain just before the Eastern NC Bass Challenge’s 3rd tournament of the year, fishing conditions were tough for most teams. While over 30 teams weighed-in a 5 bass limit, the average size bag of bass weighed in was just over 7 lbs. Big fish were hard to come by this past Sunday.
