LAKE HARTWELL IS AT FULL POOL & MID 80’S
Bass fishing is fair to good. Lake levels remain good and the bass fishing picked up some with all the cool nights we have been having this past week. The majority of the good keeper bass are still holding in ten feet of water and better. Some deep water docks are still producing some of the better Bass while fishing jigs. Use your Carolina rigs along the rocky ledges and deeper creek channels. You must fish these rigs really slow to be effective. Using four inch worms instead of the standard six inch will also increase your odds. Some anglers are still using their drop shot rigs in water fourteen feet and better. A light weighted or free falling fluke or worm around the bridge pylons is working for James Savage. James is fishing these baits right at the pylons and just letting it fall. Watch for any line movement while fishing this method. Deep water cranking a DT16 or DT20 through the suspended bass is also very effective. You can also use baits on the rocky channel ledges and bounce them off the rocks. Recreational boat traffic is still heavy on the weekends, so be careful. This weekend will call for warmer temperatures, so take along plenty of water.
