Ron Digh of Denver, NC won the North Carolina division event at Lake Kerr on May 25, 2013. Ron utilized “dirty water” in the backs of pockets with three to five feet of depth. He found shad spawning in these areas and used a Chatterbait, jig, and topwater baits to produce a 14.18 pound winning bag of bass. The co-angler division was won by Lee Grizzard of Middlesex, NC with a 6.40 pound limit. Lee caught his fish around docks and trees in the backs of pockets using a Chatterbait.
