LAKE HARTWELL IS DOWN 5.4 FEET & mid 50’S

Bass fishing is good. The cold front and the rain that passed quickly through the area slowed the fishing for a few days. The bass are roaming in and out of the coves and creeks and holding to docks and wood throughout these areas. Early in the morning until about mid day crank baits and jerk baits are fair. The jointed Shad Rap in the fire crawdad color along with the suspending shad raps is working. Take these baits and cast them along both sides of the docks and across the front of each dock that you come across. Start at the front of the cove and work to the back. By mid afternoon, use a Zoom U tail worm in the motor oil color and work the docks again. The bass will return and hold to cover and this worm will get those bites during the off feeding times. Rig it up with a 3/16 ounce weight and peg the weight. Use light line no more than 12 pound test and work the docks and wood well. If heavy cover is present on the bottom, swim the worm by using a slow but steady retrieve just off the bottom. Look for shad breaking the surface near the back of the creeks and coves and throw a Fish Head Spin or a small all white Rooster Tail right into the surface activity. The best areas to fish this week are the coves and small feeder creeks that have small flat areas in them. Also deeper water needs to be close by. The bass will roam in and out all during the day return to the deeper water and suspend. The bass are usually isolated with each area only holding one and sometimes two bass per dock or tree.

LAKE HARTWELL IS DOWN 5.4 FEET & HIGH 60’S

Bass fishing is fair. Crank baits are getting warmer now and should be hot over the next couple of weeks. Go up into the rivers and find the area where the water changes from a little stained to a little more stained or muddy. Find the channel and fish the areas where it comes closest to the bank or points. The more rocks and structure you find in these areas the better. Use the Rapala silver or Hot Mustard colored DT6 or DT10. Let the bait bounce off the rocks and stumps. The Rapala DT or Rapala Flat will work too. If you work an area really well and catch fish or not, follow up the same area with a jig or Texas Rigged four to five inch worm. Tequila Sunrise is good color in colored water. Use the smallest weight possible and fish it slow. Keep a small Flex It spoon ready and any about in a cove can and will have bass close by. But, these bass may be dead on the bottom and the new Lowrance CHIRP sonar can pick them up lying dead on the bottom.
