18.99 pounds wins Thursday Night fishing tourney on Lake Wylie

Scattered showers didn’t stop reeling in a good night of fishing April 30 during the Thursday Night Tournament Trail on Lake Wylie.

It was another good turnout for the trail with 44 boats, said Erwin Gaston, who co-organizes the weekly tournament series with Jeremy Cabe.

“We had a few passing showers and a lot of pollen blowing around,” Gaston said. “The lake water is muddy north of Buster Boyd Bridge and heavy stained south of the bridge. The bass and still eating spinnerbaits and bussbaits on windy rock banks.”

Team Chris Marshall and Scott Willis put together a five-bass stringer weighing 18.99 pounds to take the win. Brothers Ron and Roger Farrow came in close second with 18.14 pounds.

The trail is sponsored by Academy Sports, Kangaroo Express and A-1 Adams Bail Bonds Agency.

Tournaments are held Thursdays through Aug. 27. Registration runs 5:30-6:20 p.m. at Buster Boyd Access Area. Blast off is at 6:30 p.m. and weigh-in at 11 p.m. The two-night Championship Fish-off is Sept. 11-12.
