With the year almost to wrapped up, and the weather starting to look more like winter, Billfish76 and I decided it was a good time to do some fishing out on Lake Wylie. Since only one ramp was open, and the since it was a Saturday, we decided to get out early and were on the water at 6:00am. We started out fishing the shallows near the back of Allison Creek. We drifted water from 6-25 feet and only caught one fish. Not a good bite. We moved further down the creek and found some good schools of bait in 30-33 feet of water and decided to make some drifts here. The bite was much better and we put 9-10 fish in the boat around those bait balls. On our way out we ran across Mudkip in the catoon doing some open water drifting. He was bundled up well and enjoying a peaceful day on the lake. :smile2: We next moved out to some open water, but the wind was really bad and limited our ability to slow the boat down. We did manage a few more fish, but by noon we were heading back to the ramp. We ended the day with 14 channel cats from 2-6 pounds. Upon arrival at the Nivens Creek Access we were greeted by police cars, blue lights, SCDNR officers, and a sunken boat!! oooh: There was a significant fuel spill that spread hundreds of yards downstream from the boat covering the cove. The boat began taking on water for some unknown reason, ran ashore, and the back half of the boat was filled with water.
