Thunderstorms stayed away June 5 for good night of fishing on Lake Wylie.
“The weatherman was calling for thunderstorms, and at times it looked like we may get wet again this week,” said Thursday Night Tournament Trail co-organizer Erwin Gaston, “but it turned out to be a good night to fish.”
Larry Fleeman and Greg Pope brought five fish to the scales that weighed in at 15.69 pounds to take the win in a field of 33 teams.
Father-son team Russ and David Winters had a close second with five fish that weighed in at 15.12 pounds.
“Lake Wylie water temperature is averaging in the low 80s with the water clarity ranging from stained in the creeks to clear in the main lake,” Gaston said.
The weekly trail continues through the end of August with the fish off Sept. 5-6. Registration is at 5:15 p.m. at Buster Boyd Access Area.
Blastoff is at 6:30 p.m. Entry fees cost $40 per boat. Trail sponsors are Academy Sports, Kangaroo Express and A-1 Adams Bail Bond.
