Tom and Missy take the win and the GLine Battery $100 Bounty on Cooper River
We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day on the Cooper River with mild temperatures and sunny skies! We had eight teams come out to compete with every team bringing fish to the scales. Several teams commented on how clear the water was and how many big bass they watched swimming but couldn’t get to bite. It seems that the most productive bite was on crank baits and worms.
Tom and Missy Bancroft took First Place with 5 largemouth bass weighing 8.15 lbs. earning $360. We caught our bass on crankbaits in the morning and shaky head worms in the afternoon.
