Congratulations to Brian and Mike Tidwell, winners of the second South Carolina Upstate Team Division Bass Tournament on Lake Greenwood yesterday. The winners had an enormous 29.87 pound sack composed of clone 6-pounders!
2nd place went to Paul Gettys and Russell Clark with 22.54 pounds.
3rd place went to Michael Holland and Mike Cox with 20.47 pounds.
4th place went to Shane Abbott and Brian Jones with 19.18 pounds.
5th place went to Tommy Guthke and Bryan Waddell with 17.61 pounds.
57 teams fished the event, and it was a feast-or-famine day on Lake Greenwood. There were three bags over 20 pounds, including the second place bag caught by Paul Gettys’ team that weighed 22.14 pounds, and the big fish was a monster 9.05 pound hawg! On the other end of the spectrum 15 boats weighed nothing. Tournament director Randy Morrison reports that shad are dying off, and bass are podded up and gorging on the dead and dying shad. The key was locating the pods, and pretty much all of the top anglers were fishing Alabama rigs. They were fishing from 0-15 feet of water, with anglers all over the place from the backs to the main lake.
Full results will be posted on the Fishers of Men website soon; my thanks to Randy for results and information.
