Duo finishes Lake Wylie’s Thursday Night trail on win

Thursday Night Tournament Trail heads into championship following tough summer season.

“Well the fish will be able to rest for a while. Thursday night was the last regular tournament for this year,” said trail co-organizer Erwin Gaston of the Aug. 30 event held weekly on Lake Wylie with launch and weigh-in at Buster Boyd Access Area.

Chad and Austin Schroder finished with a winning weight of 13.35 pounds and the catch of the night at 4.71 pounds in a field of 35 boats.

Conrad Pogorzelski and Billy Wolf finished second with 11.43 pounds.

The two-night championship tournament combining weights from both nights to determine the overall champion will be held Friday-Saturday, Sept. 7-8.

“The championship tournament is a no-entry fee tournament that requires the boater to fish 11 of the 22 tournament to qualify,” Gaston said.

“We will start back up next year with the Fishing For A Cure Tournament on March 29,” he said.
