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 […]

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 […]
