Bob Jennett of Kernersville, NC is one step closer to the RAM American Fishing Tour National Championship with a first place win on Badin Lake this past weekend. Jennett weighed in five bass, which weighed 13.90 pounds. 

Second place went to Lance Eckford of Troutman, NC with five bass weighing 13.03 pounds. 

Third place went to Steve Sink of Winston Salem, NC with five bass weighing in at 10.98 pounds.  
 
At launch time the temperatures were in the upper 60's with clear skies and light variable winds. The day’s conditions continued with clear skies, and south winds at 10 mph, and temperatures topping out in the low 90's. Water temperatures were in the upper 70's. 
 
The winning pattern came fishing an early pattern with a black buzz bait on the outside edge of the grass, which yielded two of Bob’s weigh fish, then as the day progressed Bob caught two more of his winning sack slow rolling a chatter bait on a deep rock ledge, then his kicker came on a main lake hump winching a deep diving crankbait.  He caught 8 keepers throughout the day, and admitted he had to work hard to get bit.   Congratulations Bob!
