Joey and Michelle Miller Win on Lake Greenwood 

Saturday, June 9, proved a challenging day as 30 teams showed up for South Carolina’s Couples Tournament on Greenwood.  A calm 70-degree morning led to a hot and humid afternoon.  But these summer conditions did not deter Michelle and Joey Miller.  They handily won the event with a solid 5-fish limit weighing 17 pounds.  Their success came fishing deeper brush with a “big” worm.

Tricia and Bill Cain Victorious on Lake Russell

Tricia and Bill Cain took first place honors in South Carolina Couple’s May 19 Lake Russell tournament.  Twenty-eight teams chose to go fishing despite the threat of scattered thunderstorms, and the day proved pleasant and dry.  All teams at weigh-in had 5-fish limits.  They all did an excellent job caring for their fish during the day.  97% of these were released to be caught again another day.

Rainy Day Win for Shianne Parker and Joe Anders
Lake Keowee

Thirty-two teams ignored the all-day forecast for rain.  They showed up for South Carolina Couple’s April 7 tournament on Lake Keowee.  132 fish were brought to the scales and released healthy and happy to be caught another day.

Shianne Parker and Joe Anders claimed first place with a 5-fish sack weighing 15.4 pounds.  Joe said they caught fish on a topwater frog and a Senko.  Their hefty sack was pretty clear evidence that the fish don’t care that it’s raining.

Victoria and Dale Goff Take First Place on Lake Murray

Forty-four teams braved the chilly conditions on Lake Murray for South Carolina’s March 3 Couples tournament.  Participation was a new high for the division.  A few 80-degree days 2 weeks prior to tournament day had the fish moving shallow.  But, a few days of near freezing temperatures with high winds made anglers adjust their approach.  135 bass were brought to the scales with all of them being released alive.  Seven bass over 5 pounds were weighed.

Scotty Bartley Claims First Place on Clarks Hill

Lake Greenwood Win for the Goodfellows
Seventeen South Carolina Couples teams showed up at Lake Greenwood’s One-Stop Marina early Saturday morning, June 3rd.  A comfortable 65 degree morning led to a 90 degree afternoon as early summer in the South revealed itself.
Martha and Don Goodfellow claimed first place honors with a 5-fish sack weighing 12.3 pounds.  Martha’s 4.8 pounder took Ladies Big Bass honors.  Her big fish was caught with a Zoom Ol’ Monster worm in 5 feet of water.  Of course, Martha had to shamelessly acknowledge the sensitivity of her Kissel Kraft rod and efficiency of her Lews reel in hooking and landing the fish.  Other fish in their sack were caught with a buzzbait, surface “popper,” and worms early in the day.  Martha and Don were particularly surprised that this was their first regular season win in a decade fishing the Couples Series.

Ann and Ben Lee Win on Lake Murray

Thirty-two South Carolina Couples launched from Lake Murray’s Lighthouse Marina on March 4th. It was a cold and crisp 30 degree winter morning. Nature provided a pleasant 65 degree afternoon for weigh-in.  All of the 111 bass brought to the scales were released alive, healthy and happy. The great turn-out provided the opportunity to pay 6 places. Ann and Ben Lee of Lexington, South Carolina claimed first place with a hefty 20.4 pound sack. Anchoring their 5-fish bag was Ben’s 7.1 pound Men’s Big Fish. They caught their fish flipping a jig to docks and wood.
