A cool, clear May 14 night brought anglers out for the weekly Thursday Night Tournament Trail.

“We had 42 boats turn out,” said trail co-organizer Erwin Gaston. “The water of Lake Wylie has cleared up substantially with a few of the creek still stained. Nobody is talking about their strategies, but I did notice a lot of boats fishing off shore.”

The team of Stephen Sparrow and Phillip Carson brought five bass to the scale that weighed in at 18.03 pounds.

Second place went to Matt Garver and Campbell Whisenant with 17.88 pounds. They also reeled in the big fish of the night at 6.30 pounds.

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

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.
