Lake Norman Area Duo Won $54,000 For Catching Bass Weighing 24.59lb


The 2016 Carolina Bass Challenge Classic is now officially wrapped up and local residents Adam Waters and Dylan Fulk are now $54,000 richer. What many consider to be the world series of team bass tournaments took place at Lake Norman’s Blythe Landing this year.

220 groups with a total of 400 fishermen competed for over $105,000 in cash and prizes this year and two locals ended up winning it. Waters, from Denver, N.C., and Fulk, from Concord, NC finished their 2 day run with a total of 10 fish weighing in at 25.49 pounds.

The 1st Place prize was $50,000.00, and their unique Skeeter powered by a Yamaha earned them an additional $4,000.00 in prize money.

Prize money was given out to a total of 37 out of 400 anglers this year.

The Carolina Bass Challenge was originally created in 2010 by Brett Collins of Ridgeway, S.C., who was this year’s director and weighmaster.
