LAKE HARTWELL IS DOWN 4.1 FEET & MID 70’S

Bass fishing is good. Fish the main lake points and continuing about half way back into the larger feeder creeks. Us the 3/8 ounce Rat L Trap or Rapala Shad Rap in the shad and baby bass colors. Use a steady retrieve to get the Bass to strike. A stop and go retrieve is still working while using the jerk baits. Baby bass and Tennessee shad are good colors and be sure to fish any lay downs or the back side of points going into the cove. When you get to the tops of the trees out in deeper water, stop the bait for a three or four count, then a small twitch on two before stopping it again. Flip jigs around the docks after you have worked it thoroughly with the crank bait and a jerk bait. Watch the water temperature and fish the water 70 degrees and cooler.

Our Bass Fishing Lake Hartwell book has over 100 key bass fishing holes. Ask for a sample at ken@southernfishing.com for a sample. See our web site for Rods Reels and Lures for Bass DVD on sale.

LAKE HARTWELL IS DOWN 4.0 FEET & MID 70’S

Bass fishing is good. The fish are close to a bait schools so pay close attention to the Lowrance all day. Work and swim jigs on shallow rock and rip rap. Top water baits can take shallow fish in the early morning and that bite should continue to improve. Turn to crank baits and use Pop R's or buzz baits. Drop shotting is highly productive for taking fish toward the middle of the pockets. While many fish will be moving to shallow water in the pockets, other groups will be roaming in search of open water bait in the pockets. Remember to fish around bait schools. These fish will often congregate over and around moderately deep brush piles. Use the drop shot rig to present finesse worms and Trick worms to fish directly under your sonar.
