Clarks Hill fishing report for me was down right tough. I only managed one largemouth bite the whole day. It came on a Shadow Rap in blueback color in a saddle between two islands midway down the lake. The water was in the 70's up above where I put in and a couple degrees cooler down where I caught my fish. I spoke with a guy checking all his jugs and he told me that his brother as well as some other guys he was talking to along the way said they were having problems as well. I don't know what exactly was going on compared to the reports I had read but I just couldn't get anything going for me. I tried everything from a spot remover to a swimbait and anything else I could think of.
On another note, the striper and hybrids were schooling everywhere we went. There were big ones and little ones jumping completely out of the water. My brother-in-law caught a small one of each.

Lake Thurmond: Crappie: Fair to good. Crappie are in a traditional winter pattern, and they can be caught around trees in about 35 feet of water. Fish 15-20 feet down with minnows. Black bass: Fair. Up and down temperatures seem to have fish in flux. Early in the morning there has been some schooling activity in the backs of coves and in the mouths of pockets, and fish have been taking flukes and Spooks. When fish are not on the surface spinnerbaits have been the best bet.
