My son, brother and his wife fished Lake Wateree this morning. I met them at the Wateree Creek landing at 7am - actually, I was there at 7, they got lost and we eventually got started fishing at 8:45 am. Made a few token casts for shad but didn't get any. The morning was nice and cool and there was a pleasant breeze. We used bream heads and parts trolling in the upper lake area. Caught 3 blues (9, 10, 11 lbs) and 2 channels. Well, one channel escaped because I tried to hoist it into the boat rather than using the net. Quit around noon because we were sleepy and it was getting hot.
