Childers Wins Season Opener on Lake Keowee

Running out of South Cove park in Seneca South Carolina, the Townville South Carolina angler weighed in a five bass limit weighing 15.66 lbs. For his win Childers took home $3200.00.

I caught most of my fish on a jig fishing anywhere from 6-20 feet. Other baits I caught fish on were a blade runner and a shaky head said Childers.

Taking second place, Cody Hoyle of Rutherfordton, NC weighed in a five bass limit weighing 15.14 lbs. He earned $1500.00 for the effort.

I caught my fish on a custom glide bait that I paint fishing main lake points in 10-25 feet
Said Hoyle.

Steven Ricker of Greenville, SC placed third with a five bass limit weighing 14.97 lbs.
He received $1000.00 for his finish. Ricker also weighed in the biggest bass of the event with a fish that weighed 5.08lbs. He took home an additional $400.00 for his bass.

My day didn’t start out too well, by 1:00 I only had three fish. I just ran and hit as many spots as I could. I think I ended up catching seven fish and my biggest fish came on a swimbait at about 15 feet.

Finishing fourth Gregory Glouse of Liberty, SC weighed in a five bass limit weighing 14.59 lbs. and rounding out the top five, Keith Westrick of Marietta, Ga weighed in a five bass limit weighing 14.44 lbs.
