October 17, 2014   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.
