Bass-fishing division finale coming to Santee Cooper lakes

The top bass anglers from around the region are set to fish the Santee Cooper lakes April 25-27 for the Costa Fishing League Worldwide Series Southeastern Division finale presented by Power-Pole. Hosted by the Clarendon County Chamber of Commerce, the three-day tournament will feature more than 330 of the best regional bass-fishing pros and co-anglers casting for a top prize package of up to $94,000, including a new Ranger Z518L boat with a 200-horsepower Evinrude or Mercury outboard in the pro division.

“This tournament is going to be centered around the spawn,” said FLW Tour pro Bryan Thrift of Shelby, North Carolina, the 2018 Costa FLW Series Southeastern Angler of the Year who finished in sixth place when the circuit visited the fishery in April 2018. “It’s probably going to be the tail-end of the spawn – there’ll be some fry-guarders up. Trees will definitely be a big player this year, just like last year.”
