Bass tournament April 6 at Lake Robinson
A bass fishing tournament is scheduled April 6 at Lake Robinson. It’s the second year the Greer Centennial Lions Club has hosted the tournament that is a fundraising event for community projects.

Proceeds from the tournament will be used for the Chandler Creek Elementary vision voucher program the club is sponsoring and based on the success of the fishing tournament, may allow the program to be expanded to other schools.

The tournament is open to the public with a top prize of $1,000 for the biggest fish, $1,000 for first place and prizes in descending value second to 10th place. The biggest largemouth bass caught on Lake Robinson was 13-pounds, 14-ounces  on April 13, 1994.

Registration is open with applications at the Lake Robinson warden’s office, Greer CPW, bait and tackle shops and online at www.greercpw.com/lakes-recreation Participants must have a fishing license through the S.C. Department of Natural Resources and a boating and fishing permit through Greer CPW.

“Last year showed us the Greer community is hungry for another bass fishing tournament,” said Becky Pickett, Lions Club President. “Securing forty-one boats our first year was remarkable and we only hope the momentum continues.

“We used tournament funds (last year) to purchase a glaucoma screening machine that has been well received at events like Big Thursday, Greer Family Fest and many health fairs in the community,” said Pickett.

A post tournament picnic features Mutt’s BBQ.
