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.

LAKE HARTWELL IS DOWN 4.4 FEET & HIGH 70’S Bass fishing is fair. Buzz baits in the back of dockets and creeks is working but only in isolated areas. The trick is to find the small shad breaking on the surface and use a 1/4 ounce double bladed buzz bait. Flukes and three inch pearl colored Wildeye Swim Shad in the front of the deep water docks are working. Bass that are suspended from mid lake to the dam. The shallow fish up lake feed right at daylight until 9am. Spinner baits will work and this bait will get better over the next couple of weeks. Continue fishing the main lake points and steep rocky banks along with the deep water docks. 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.
