Great turnout today to kick off the 2016 CBC on Lake Wylie for the the NC Division.....205 boats gathered at blastoff in 25 degree weather to go out and battle for the $10,000 first place guaranteed prize. Weights were on the light side early as many, many teams did not weigh in a limit. Very cold water temps definitley had something to do with the lack of activity, however, as the later flights began to come in, there was better quality and quanity. BF of the day was 6.90 Lbs and was worth $1000.
The consensus regarding Lake Okeechobee from the anglers we spoke to today, the off-limits rest day for the 169 Professional Anglers and Co-Anglers fishing the opener for the 2016 FLW Tour was broad. Words like Interesting, crazy, uneventful, boring and fickle were used among some others we would rather not print.
