The Eastern NC Bass Challenge visited the Neuse River in New Bern, NC for the second time in 2018 this past weekend. 61 teams competed in this months tournament which was sponsored by Creek Sports Shop of Jacksonville.  With 61 teams and 115 anglers competing, the competition was sure to be tough on the Neuse despite rough weather conditions as a Tropical System was developing just off the North Carolina coast creating heavy winds through out most of the day.

While anglers found the weather conditions made fishing difficult, the team of Paul King and Bradly Stain had no problem as they weighed in 16.58 lbs of bass and took 1st place on the Neuse River!


A $2000 Bag of Fish – King and Stain Take 1st and Big Fish
