Cobia season is still in full swing on the Broad River between Beaufort and Hilton Head.  Captain Tuck Scott’s boat saw and caught three cobia yesterday, and the largest is pictured below.   In the bright sun their boat ran over the big fish in 30 feet of water before they saw it.  Captain Tuck […]
Thanks to tournament director Erwin Gaston for results and information. ______________ Gene Webster put it on us again. The man is in a zone. He brought 18 plus lbs to the scales Thursday Night. I understand he is dredging them up from deep water. Mark Humphries and Josh Warren are in a zone themselves. Congratulations […]
Sorry folks... this has already been posted once but somehow got deleted.
Check out this 10 pound plus flounder caught yesterday by Mark Crenshaw of Murrell’s Inlet while fishing in the creek.  It was caught on Perry’s Bait and Tackle JUMBO mud minnows!   Delete  
Thanks to tournament director Erwin Gaston for information and results… Geez, fishing is tough. I guess if it was easy we would call it catching rather than fishing. Congratulations to Gene Webster with the win. Second place went to the team of Josh Warren and Mark Humphries. The Thursday Night Tournament Trail sponsors are, A-1 […]
Thanks to tournament director Erwin Gaston for results and information… __________________ Well it wanted to rain, tried it’s best to rain and lighting dancing in the background but it turned out to be a good night on the water. The fishing is still tough this year with a few exceptions. Congratulations to Todd Garner and […]
Sorry for the delay… Thanks to Erwin Gaston for results and information. ____________________ 4/12 Wow, we have already completed two Thursday Night Tournaments this year. Time is crusing. It was a little chilly during the tournament, well plum cold but it was a clear night and in most part the fish were biting. Congratulations to […]
From TNTT director Erwin Gaston… We kicked off the Thursday Night Tournament Trail last night with 28 boats and what a night it was. During sign-ups the clouds rolled in and then came the rain, wind and cold air but as usual there is always someone that has the fish figured out. Congratulations to Jim […]
This article was originally published on April 15, 2009, following a successful spring season for Dearal Rodgers on Lake Wateree.  That same year Dearal went on to be the 2009 FLW Co-Angler of the Year last year, but of more importance to Lake Wateree fishermen he had just won two straight CATT tournaments on Lake […]
When South Carolina anglers think of our state’s premier blue catfish fisheries Lakes Marion and Moultrie, Lake Monticello, and Lake Wateree probably come to mind.  But there is another lake that Captain Rodger Taylor believes should be on the short list, if it is not already.  With good tributary rivers and a defined channel, major […]
Ron Davis has been fishing around the Edisto Island area for 18 years, but he only considers the last 3 to have been productive. The first time that Ron ever fished Edisto he was visiting his wife’s parents who had a second home on the island, and he headed up a creek and had a […]
FLW Pro Matt Arey of Shelby, North Carolina spends much of “fishing season” on the road, and so from the end of February through the summer he will usually be found traveling around the country to FLW Tour Events. When he’s not traveling he’s often guiding and tournament fishing on his home lakes, Lake Wylie […]
It’s a matter of opinion (although a widely held one) to say that Lake Jocassee is the most scenic lake in South Carolina. It is also stating a personal preference to say that cold water trout are among the most beautiful, best-tasting fish this state has to offer. It is a fact, though, that there […]
Lake Greenwood is on Fire: Catfishing on Lake Greenwood with Captain Chris Simpson When I went fishing with Captain Chris Simpson for trophy blue catfish on Lake Monticello, we anchored down and waited patiently for the big bite. It was an exciting waiting game, because nothing and nobody can tell a giant blue catfish what to […]
When I pulled up to Broyle’s Landing for a day of Lake Hartwell bass fishing with Captain Brad Fowler the June sun was already high in the sky, and it was starting to get hot. When we launched a little after 8:00 it had been light for more than two hours, and I was pretty […]
Since late summer bass fishing on Clarks Hill/ Lake Thurmond has been tough, and the trend has continued this winter. As far back as September tournament-winning sacks were light, and in the FLW Series Clarks Hill Event this fall ten pounds a day was enough to finish in second place. Theories abound about the reasons […]
Captain Steve Pietrykowski developed his passion for fishing growing up in Northern Ohio and fishing for trout and salmon in Michigan with his father. For the better part of the last decade he has made a living doing what he loves. Captain Steve has guided from Alaska to the Florida Keys, and now that he […]
This spring I had one of the best bass fishing trips of my life on Lake Jocassee with Captain Pat Bennett. It seemed that every ledge and piece of wood in main lake coves held good largemouth, smallmouth, spots, redeye bass and crosses of these species, and we caught them all day. When I returned […]
Pro Keith Williamson Offers Tips from the September 2009 FLW Series Event on Clarks Hill In last weekend’s Walmart FLW Series Event on Clarks Hill (Lake Thurmond) Keith Williamson of Lincolnton, Georgia finished in 3rd place and netted $38,803 – a successful day at work by most anyone’s standards! He did it by chasing bass […]
Growing up in Anderson fishing on Lake Hartwell, Pendleton’s Brad Fowler developed a love of bass fishing on that lake. Now that he owns and operates an electrical contracting business he has the flexibility to guide on Lakes Hartwell and Keowee and to fish local and national tournaments. In 2008 he fished the FLW Series […]
When Captain Doug Lown says that Lake Murray is like a pond out of balance it is worth listening. Captain Lown has fished Lake Murray for 35 years and has been a preeminent largemouth bass guide on the lake for more than 20. He has watched the crappie fishery decline over the last 20 or […]
A Year-round Guide to Bass Fishing on Lake Murray A few years ago it seemed that every third bass I caught fishing on Lake Murray weighed three to six pounds. Despite my spending more time pursuing crappie, striped bass, and bream, I caught bass that weighed more than five pounds on several different models of […]
With its crystal clear blue waters Lake Jocassee may be the easiest lake in South Carolina in which to see bass, but the catching is more difficult. The first time Captain Pat Bennett fished Lake Jocassee a ten pound bass stared back at him and he saw several more fish approaching the same size, but […]
