Overall Bite: GOOD I got a couple of days in this past weekend fishing on Lake Wylie with Mark Young. Friday night was a practice trip, and Saturday night was a tournament. The lake has dropped about 1-1.25 feet in the past few weeks. There are some sandbars showing we have not seen since the drought. Water temps are now 81-83 degrees and the water is clear. Right now the day bite is pretty good during the week. Weekends are still producing enough pleasure boaters to slow things down during the midday hours. The fish seem scattered, with no real concentrations along any certain depth contours. Almost any cut bait will produce fish. The night before the tournament, Friday, was a much better night for overall numbers and size of fish. We drifted all night and caught a good number of fish scouting for the tournament. We also managed a 19 pound blue catfish on the end of Lake Wylie all the back in a cover in about 10 feet of water. So, the bigger fish ARE all over the lake. I think we will see a 50+ pound blue or flathead come from the lower lake soon. The night of the tournament we continued fishing the lower lake and landed the 23 pound flathead in my avatar. That fish came out of the back of a creek, drifting, on a bream fillet. Overall the night of the tournament was a slow bite for bigger channel cats. We managed a dozen fish, and we won the tournament, but the total weight for three channel catfish was only 13 pounds. So, good fish can be caught on Lake Wylie right now, especially if you can get out and fish during the week.
