    Catawba Catfish Club

— The Catawba Catfish Club held its eighth tournament of the season on April 12 at Lake Wylie, with 29 boats competing for a total pot of $1,360 and big fish pot of $290.

Organizer Marty Green said anglers were greeted with partly cloudy skies and temperatures in the high 70s, with little wind. Water conditions were stained from recent rains, and its temperature was about 60 degrees.

“Word at the weigh-in was that most fish and the biggest fish for most teams were caught early in the couple of hours before dark,” Green said. “Teams said the bite died off after dark.”

Team “Get the Net” pulled out the win with a three-fish stringer of 84.25 pounds, good for $680, as well as nabbing the big fish prize with a 43.80-pound flathead.

The top seven teams in the points had an off-night, with the best finish being posted by Team DMDs in eighth place, enabling them to jump into second place. Team Reelin’ the Blues maintained their lead and got into the last event at Wateree with a 10-point lead.

The final tournament will be held from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. May 3 at Lake Wateree State Park.
