The retirees fished on Lake Wylie last week and Ronnie Humphries picked up the win. Humphries had 8.0 to get the win and he anchored that with the big bass of the day, a 2.75 largemouth. Fred Wright and Ken Johnson took second with 4.75 and David O’Shields and JR Henry had 4.15 good for third. This week the old-timers will be on Lake Norman.
It is known that one of the catalysts that bring on the deer rut is the shortening of daylight hours. I’m not sure what that specifically has to do with the process, but again it is one of a number of factors that determine that special time of year.
