LAKE HARTWELL IS DOWN 4.1 FEET & MID 70’S
Bass fishing is good. Fish the main lake points and continuing about half way back into the larger feeder creeks. Us the 3/8 ounce Rat L Trap or Rapala Shad Rap in the shad and baby bass colors. Use a steady retrieve to get the Bass to strike. A stop and go retrieve is still working while using the jerk baits. Baby bass and Tennessee shad are good colors and be sure to fish any lay downs or the back side of points going into the cove. When you get to the tops of the trees out in deeper water, stop the bait for a three or four count, then a small twitch on two before stopping it again. Flip jigs around the docks after you have worked it thoroughly with the crank bait and a jerk bait. Watch the water temperature and fish the water 70 degrees and cooler.
