Bruce Camp's Local Fishing Report August 11th edition
The retirees fish Lake Hickory last week and has been the pattern on this lake, it was TOUGH! John Black and Roger McNeilly got the win with 3.30 followed closely by Ronnie Humphries, fishing solo, with 3.20. Tommy Wess and James Haynes had 2.0 and took third. The team of Black and McNeilly had the big bass of the day with a 2.0 largemouth. This week, the old-timers will hit Lake Norman and hopefully better catches.
If you remember there was a storm brewing in the hours before blast off time last Thursday for the weekly Moss Lake bass tournament. This storm and recent low catches meant that only 14 boats showed up last week. Brian and Cody Hoyle got the win with 7.15 followed by Matt and Emily Arey with 5.90. Jeff Melton and Glen Eaves had 2.6 and settled in third and fourth went to Jody Black and Travis Hamrick. Big fish was a 2.50 brought in by the fourth place team of Black and Hamrick.
The Cleveland County Bass Club fished High Rock Lake last week for their August event. It seemed to be a family thing as Larry Melton took the win with 11.34 followed by Tammy Melton with 7.16. Jimmy Melton had 6.84 and was third. Jay Price had 6.36 to claim fourth and rounding out the top five was Tom Mayhew with 5.86. Three keepers also seemed to be the norm as the top three and fifth place had three bass while Price has 2. September will find the CCBC on Lake Norman.
