LAKE HARTWELL IS DOWN 10.9 FEET, STAINED & 85 DEGREES - Bass fishing is fair and the water temperature is still in the 80's and the bass have responded to the warmer water. Start the mornings off the same as last week with Chug Bugs and Skitter Props in the shallow waters. The black bass and the spots are most active during the morning period. Look for the larger bass to bite early in the mornings with these two top water baits and increase the speed of the retrieve on any missed bites or short strikes. Continue fishing the rocky points again this week. These are still good fishing places to locate any feeding bass with crank baits and top water baits. The Fat Free Shad, the Shad Raps and the Ito Vision 110 are working. Have the bigger baits ready during the mid morning. Look under docks, stumps, trees and brush piles with plastics and jigs. Continue to expect pop up showers anytime during the day. Showers and thunderstorms are common, especially during the late afternoon hours. Some of these storms are severe.
