Co/Angler advice on High Rock Lake and Lake Wateree in June

Recommended Posts

I want to thank all of you for the previous advice on my first question., especially Zel..Now my second question...I will be fishing the BFL tournaments on High Rock and Wateree in Mid June as a Co/Angler...Again, this is new to me...As a co/Angler what would you recommend my fishing techniques might be...what should I be prepared for..understanding my Boaters' in each event could be vastly different...thanks for your help in advance

P.S. Unfortunately in BFL tournaments you do not get your Boater until the night before...I will grill my boaters on their styles that night...

When in doubt pull the shakey out  ;D

Senko's work well as well behind your boater.  Just keep it simple and fish your strengths when you can.

I would use something that moves as fast or faster than the boaters lure. If you try to fish something that is slower than what they are using you'll end up draging it at times and not being able to use it properly.

OOO I like that  ;)

But back to the question. Use what your boater is not using, even if he is catching fish like crazy. Lets say he's using a deep diving crankbait. Use a big spinnerbait that you can slow roll. Or if he's using a jig, use a shakey head or a t-rig. You want to be different, yet similar (if that makes sense).

Almost no one talks about it but one thing probably above everthing else that has  helped me this year is practice. Theres always boaters putting in the launch a couple days before practice, thats in the tournament, that fish alone, and are glad to have the company, different bait in the water, or to share gas for the day.  I show up early, offer my services to back the boat in, or ask to go, and have never been turned down. Sometimes I take my own boat and develope my own stuff just in case the boater isn't on anything. But either way, it gets me focused and educated. I've noticed that my tackle bag has gotten smaller and I'm not draggin along as many rods. Equippment is ready to go and the conversation with my boater draw the night before, makes better sense. I started doing it this year on the BASS Southern Open Tour and so far cashed in both events and am in 11th place, after Santee.
