Congratulations to Clay Williams and David Redmon, winners of the second CATT Lake Wylie Spring Tournament yesterday. They caught a huge Lake Wylie bag of 23.78 pounds, including a 5.75 pound big fish.
2nd place went to Mark Leach with 17.80 pounds.
3rd place went to Todd Garner and Shane Hartman with 14.80 pounds.
Because of the cold only 6 boats fished the event, but tournament director Jeremy Cabe reports that the Lake Wylie bite remains on fire. The fourth place boat had 14.73 pounds, while two teams chose not to weigh in. The predominant bite continues to be an Alabama rig bite, although fish are also being caught on a jerkbait with the very cold water (water temps are in the low 40s, and the whole lake is clear). There has been a significant shad die-off and most of the weight is coming down the lake in the deeper water, although the best numbers may be found above the bridges. It is primarily a main lake pattern, and anglers are working drops, points and other depth changes. The Allison creeks have been especially strong. The hot hole has not been a factor, although small schooling fish have been caught there.
Complete results will be posted on the CATT website soon; my thanks to tournament director Jeremy Cabe for results and information.
