Lake Hartwell Fishing Report – November 2009
Hartwell: Level: 1.9 feet below full pool. Temp: Mid 60s. Clarity: Clear.
Bass: Excellent. Josh Fowler reports, “Bass fishing has been excellent over the last few weeks. On Oct. 17 the Hart County Golden K benefit tournament took 22 pounds to win, and the top four teams all weighed in more than 17 pounds. Greg Kellum and I finished second with 19 pounds. The run-and-gun topwater approach has been the key to catching the better fish. It’s all about timing, and you need to have at least 20 places so you can move around to locate an active school of fish. Stay with baits that match the blueback herring. The Zoom Super Fluke is hard to beat when this bite is on. As we move into November, look for everything to change. All the rain has created plenty of shallow cover for the bass, and we have flooded grass and brush everywhere. Once the water temp gets in the low 60s, we should see a good shallow bite develop. Head for the backs of the creeks, and cast Rat-L-Traps, spinnerbaits, floating worms and Horny Toads around all the shallow cover.”
