LAKE HARTWELL IS DOWN 4.2 FEET & HIGH 40’S
Bass fishing is slow. Bass are hanging out on the ledges out on the main lake. Carolina rigs seem to be among many of the weapons used to catch a limit. Mid lake some anglers are using small lead head jigs and a Zoom fluke in pearl on an Alabama rig. The more active bass are still responding afternoons to the Rapala DT10 and #7 Shad Raps while working the deeper water. The shad color still seems to be the favorite lure. Anglers are finding a few shallow water bass along the bank especially between two points. The back side of sharp points is also holding good bass. Use the Husky Jerks and crank baits along with drop shot rigs. On the warmer days, expect the fish to be a little more active and move up to feed more often.
