Jaris & Sherri McGee bring it for a win on Lake Greenwood
We had a field of 20 teams competing for the 5th tournament of the South Carolina series held on Lake Greenwood March 2nd. A good portion of the lake was muddy due to recent rainfall with temperatures in the range of 55 to 58 degrees. A total of 65 fish were weighed and released for a total of 140.50-lbs. Majority of the fish caught came on A-Rigs, crankbaits, spinnerbaits and chatterbaits down the lake where the water was a little clearer.
Jaris & Sherri McGee brought 5 fish weighing 15.79-lbs. to the scales to secure 1st place. Jaris had a kicker weighing 4.77-lbs for men’s big fish.
Dewayne & Kristina Cothran weighed 4 fish for 13.27-lbs. earning them 2nd place.
Dale & Victoria Goff had 5 fish weighing 13.00-lbs. for 3rd place with a 3.98-lbs. bass for Ladies Big Fish.
Owen & Kim Jepsen weighed 5 fish for 11.58-lbs. to take 4th place.
William & Tricia Cain took home the Berkeley Outdoors sponsored 5 Smallest Fish Limit prize with 8.61-lbs.
Congratulations to all of our winners.
We hope everyone had a great time and we look forward to seeing everyone at the next tournament on March 30th at the Santee Cooper Lakes Marion & Moultrie out of Black’s Fish Camp. This should be prime to time to catch big bass in the shallows. Bring your expectations for some great fishing! IF you have a dream of catching that big bass, this is the time to see it come true. Don’t miss out! Come join in the fun!
Black’s Fish Camp has lodging available, but may fill up fast as this is the peak season and lodging requires a 2-night minimum.
