  • Lake Hartwell Stripers

    According to Brian at the Bait Shop in Anderson, “The striper fishing on Lake Hartwell is not given to you; you have to work for them.”

    Anglers are pulling planner boards in the creeks using gizzard shad and blueback herring. Most anglers are starting on the points and working the baits until they run out of water.

    One fisherman said that he worked one creek up and down at least 40 times before he got a bite. The main creeks that the anglers are working include: Coneross, Martins, and 18 Mile Creeks.

    With the water temperature in the 50s, some anglers are utilizing spring tactics. They are anchoring up on points and fishing cut bait. Also fishermen are jigging green Ľ-1/2 ounce Berry Flex It spoons on the points in 15 feet of water.

    Most anglers were reporting that it has been an afternoon bite, and they are still catching some good stripers, plus a variety of fish including; hybrids, spots, and catfish.
