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.

In addition, Tom & Missy earned the first GLine $100 Bounty by being the top finisher running a GLine Battery on their trolling motor.  Tom says his purchase of the GLine Lithium Batteries was a great investment.  We started and ended the day with 12.6 volts available for our electronics and trolling motor.   GLine also offers a 10% discount to our South Carolina ABA Couples.  

Looks like Hays and Melanie Brooks last-minute decision to come and compete on the Cooper River was a good decision.  They took 2nd place with 5 largemouth bass weigh 7.79 lbs and earned $240 for their efforts.

Clay Kolb caught his 3.19 lb largemouth on a weightless 5” senko.  Lisa says Clay kept her busy with the net most of the day.

Susan Mills is no stranger to the Ladies Big Bass award.  Her 2.43 lb. largemouth was caught on a Texas rig worm.  Susan said she didn’t expect her catch to hold up for ladies big bass based on all of the larger bass they were able to watch but couldn’t get to commit.

Everyone has those days on the water when you catch fish but they all seem to be fanners or you just never get that kicker you’ve been looking for.  Well thanks to Berkeley Outdoors, one of our generous sponsors, our couples can still get a payday if they weigh in the smallest 5-fish limit.  Clay and Lisa Kolb were the recipients of the Berkeley $50 Smallest Limit Award for the Cooper River tournament.  
Our next event is scheduled for December 11, 2021 on Lake Russell out of Russell State Park.  Come out and join in the fun!

Thanks to our sponsors for providing items for teams that don’t earn a pay day.  It’s always nice to see the smiles on our couples faces when they get to pick from the sponsor table.  We have some of the best sponsors:  ALX Rods, Berkeley Outdoors, Choo Choo Custom Lures, Continental Tires, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Five Bass Tackle, GLine Batteries, JC’s Outdoors, Kissel Kraft Custom Rods, Lew’s, Phantom Outdoors, Strike King and Yo-zuri.  Don’t forget to shop our great sponsors before you buy!
