Carolina Angler's Team Trail Wateree Tournament

The Carolina Angler's Team Trail (CATT) held their 2nd Lake Wateree qualifying tournament last weekend, and the largemouth were in a cooperative mood. The nice weather we had last week carried over to the weekend, making it a good day for numerous anglers.

Twenty-three teams fished the event, and it was all about family at the weigh-in, as brothers Craig and Tim Haven of Lugoff brought a hefty 5-bass limit weighing over 20 lbs to the scale and taking first place. The brothers also cashed in on some bonus money. Their 6.91 lb bass took big fish honors which was good for $260. As the highest-finishing team in a Stratos boat, they were also awarded the Stratos cash bonus. Their total winnings for the day equaled $1892.

Camden's Andy Owens came in 2nd place with his 5-fish limit that weighed just over 18 lbs. He had a 5.5 lb bass that was good for 2nd place big fish, and took home $369 in prize money.

Several other CATT quailifiers were fished on other lakes throughout the state as well, and the anglers fished them with the goal of being one of the top 70 teams in any CATT trail, which will make them eligible for the 2010 CATT Classic, set to take place May 15-16 at Lake Murray.

The next CATT Wateree qualifier will be held this Saturday out of Clearwater Cove. For more information on the Carolina Angler's Team Trail, check out Brett Collins' website at http://www.carolinaanglersteamtrail.com/.
