Carolina Anglers fish Lake Wateree on March 26
The cold and rain didn't slow down the fishing on Lake Wateree on March 26 for the Carolina (Camden High School) Anglers. The team got underway early that day at 6:45 a.m. and everyone caught fish. The fish were on the beds, but couldn't be seen due to the clouds and rain and most were caught with jigs.
The results as follows:
- 15 to 18-year-old group
Mitch Forrest - 12 pounds (5 fish)
Tyler Branham - 8.9 pounds
Drew Charles - 8.7 pounds
Calvin Wadford - 8 pounds
Bradley Sheorn - 2 pounds
- 11 to 14-year-old group
Carson Morgan – 2 pounds
The next tournament for the Carolina Anglers is Sunday April 10th at Lake Wateree.
The S.C. Department of Natural Resources (DNR) recently partnered with The Bass Federation to form Youth Bass Fishing League Clubs at middle and high schools around South Carolina. Contact DNR Aquatic Education Coordinator Lorianne Riggin at (803) 737-8483 or RigginL@dnr.sc.gov to find out more about the Bass Fishing Clubs and their tournaments.
It's more than just the thrill of reeling in the big one and enjoying time with friends, fishing club members also learn information about fisheries management, artificial lures, attractants and more. There are currently six high schools and two middle schools taking part in the bass fishing clubs.
Interested in forming a bass fishing club at your school and becoming a part of the Youth Bass Fishing League? All you need to do is get a minimum of six students (within the 11-18 year old range) with dues paid and you can have a Youth Bass Fishing League Club. You'll also need an adult at your school to help lead the Youth Bass Federation Club, provide advice and help arrange at least two club tournaments, fundraisers, speakers and other learning sessions pertaining to fishing for club meetings.
