Top 10 Baits from Wheeler Lake

Top 10 Baits from Wheeler Lake

Early summer on the Tennessee River is ledge-fishing time, but Wheeler Lake – according to many anglers – doesn’t set up like its sister reservoirs on the Tennessee River chain. Bass don’t pile into mega-schools on river drops. Instead, the postspawn season can be tackled with a mish-mash of approaches, including dragging shell beds and other hard-bottom areas offshore, flipping docks, flipping and frogging grass or wood, and fishing brush. Those are the tactics that the top 10 teams used at the YETI FLW College Fishing National Championship presented by Lowrance C-Map Genesis at Wheeler Lake. Here are the baits they used. READ MORE »

The University of South Carolina’s fishing teams are starting to make themselves very comfortable inside the winner’s circle of the YETI FLW College Fishing National Championship.

Top 10 Baits from the KY Lake College Open

Top 10 Baits from the KY Lake College Open

Strike King lures fished by Tennessee River locals from Tennessee, Kentucky and Alabama dominated the 2017 YETI FLW College Fishing Open on Kentucky Lake, with just a few exceptions. All the anglers dealt with changing weather and extreme wind shifts (and pretty nasty waves), as well as fickle fish that were staging to move up and spawn. The result was an up-and-down tournament for many in the field. Finesse options were popular among the 194 teams who competed, but most of the top 10 teams found their best success by cranking, fishing jigs and dragging Carolina rigs. READ MORE »
