I'll be making a trip to Lake Wylie at the end of October for a Tournament. Anyone have any helpful hints so I make the best of my limited practice time? Or if you know of a good guide I can call upon for a half day trip? This will be my first time on this lake and any help would be appreciated.

At the time of the year you are heading up to Wylie, Rapala Shad Raps should be producing pretty well. (or any other brand thin tight wobbling crankbait) Be sure to have a them shad colored and fire tiger colored. The SR 7's and SR 5s do well. Another color to keep on hand is what the North Carolinians call Homer. Homer is basically a yellow bait with a blue back and a bit of orange on the belly.
Try to keep an eye on the weather in that area if you can. When it rains good up that way Wylie will get VERY muddy! Most of its banks are made of red clay so it becomes like strawberry quick. I havent been there in a long time but with the rains NC has been getting and will more than likely get before you arrive, expect it to be pretty muddy.

I wish I could give you more info but Im afraid, being as I havent fished it in a while, thats the best I can do for now. I will try to talk to a few of my buddies who fish it more regularly and see what they have to say about current conditions.

Go to www.anglerschannel.com. This is a site that is located in Rock Hill, SC and has alot of information on Lake Wylie. We are having a Championship Tournament the last week of October on Wylie for The Southern Anglers Challenge. Check out our web site at www.southernanglerschallenge.com

Im not sure if you visited the pay site that bharvey spammed here and what ya were told about Wylie on that site IF you did visit it... BUT I know you saw my suggestion for Wylie in this thread. (and didn't have to pay for it I might add ;) )

Well guess what the featured article on bassmaster.com from BASS Times is about?  :clap: Yep, you guessed it. Its about exactly what I was talking about... small tight wobbling baits in the fall in NC.   :victory:

This is exactly what my buddies and I have done/been doing for the last decade up on Wylie once fall sets in. Heck, anywhere there is shad, or herring, this technique works, in the fall. :)
