  • Lake Wateree Bass Red Hot

    The bass fishing on Lake Wateree is as good as it's been in years, with tournament anglers needing 25+ pounds to win many of the local Wateree tournaments.

    Jigs are accounting for a lot of the bass bites at Wateree, but topwater lures like hollow-body frogs thrown in the grass are good bets too.

    Brett Collins of Carolina Anglers Team Trail ( said the bass bite at Wateree has been awesome this year and he doesn't see any reason for it to slow down anytime soon.

    Carolina rigs, Zara Spooks, and Rat L Traps are working well also, and good bites and big fish are coming from all sections of the lake.
