The fish are biting in South Carolina!

That's where NBC 6's Patrick Dennis is to cover the Forrest Wood Cup tournament.

He joined us this morning via phone from Lake Murray, to tell us more about what is expected in the coming days.

Find out why he's looking forward to this year.

According to Fishing League Worldwide, "the Forrest Wood Cup, the world championship of bass fishing, is the most lucrative and prestigious tournament of the year. The 2013 Forrest Wood Cup featured 46 professionals and 46 co-anglers. During the 4-day event, pros will compete for a top award of $500,000, while co-anglers cast away for as much as $50,000."
