FLW College Fishing National Championship Headed To Lake Keowee

SENECA, S.C., Feb. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- FLW College Fishing is headed to Lake Keowee March 6-8 for the FLW College Fishing National Championship presented by the Lowrance Insight Genesis College Cup. Forty-nine college teams will be competing for a top award of a Ranger Z117 and entry into the 2014 Forrest Wood Cup, the world championship of bass fishing.

"Lake Keowee is kind of a miniature Lake Hartwell, really," said Walmart FLW Tour pro Andy Morgan. "It's deep and clear and has a good population of spotted bass and largemouth. There are some magnum largemouth in there."

Morgan said anglers will favor offshore tactics during the tournament – jerkbaits, drop-shot rigs and shaky-head rigs.

"There may be a few caught by dock fishing, but it will probably be dominated offshore," Morgan said. "Once it warms up, they're hard to catch. Once they come off the bed you can catch them for a couple of weeks on topwater baits, but then they get hard to catch. If I had to pick one time to be at Keowee this would be it.

"My guess is you'll see 75 percent spotted bass at the weigh-ins," Morgan added. "And it's going to take 16 to 17 pounds a day to win."

Anglers will take off from South Cove County Park located at 828 S. Cove Road in Seneca, S.C., at 7 a.m. Weigh-in will be held at South Cove County Park starting at 3 p.m. on Thursday and Friday. Weigh-in Saturday will be at 3 p.m. at the Walmart located at 1636 Sandifer Blvd. in Seneca. Takeoffs and weigh-ins are free and open to the public.
