    Lake Wylie 4-12-14 Tournament Results
    The Catawba Catfish Club had our 8th tournament on Saturday April 12th on Lake Wylie,NC/SC..We had 29 Boats comprised of 68 Anglers5 Kids show up to fish the tournament.All were competing for a Total Pot of $1360 and a Big Fish Pot of $290.
    Anglers were greeted with Partly Cloudy skies and temps in the High 70s and little wind to speak of,water condition were stained from recent rains and had a few floaters..Water temp was around the 60 degree mark give or take a degree or two depending on location..Word at the weigh in was that most fish and the biggest fish for most teams were caught early in the couple of hours before dark,a lot of teams said the bite died off after dark for them..At the weigh in we had 20 of 29 Teams weigh In.
    In the end the Team of “Get the Net” pulled out the win with a 3 fish stringer of 84.25 good for $680 and they also captured Big Fish of the event earning them an extra $290 with a 43.80 lb Flathead.
    The Top 7 Teams in the Points had an off night with the best finish being posted by Team DMDs 8th Place finish enabling them to jump into 2nd Place of Team Rivercat…Team Reelin the Blues maintained their lead and go into the last event at Wateree with a 10 point lead.
