Re: lake hartwell stripers
Live bait is always best when fishing striper. The time of year makes a big differece on what type of set up you want to use..Spring/fall when the water temp is below 65 look in the rivers and creeks useing lagre gizzard shad and trout. Use plainer board or freelines and troll.. Also this time of year is good for shcooling topwater fish..They are usually smaller but it is a awsome bite..In the summer when the water temp is in the 70s. The fish move down to the deeper water (the dam)..Fish the flooded tember in the main river channel using a downline tech. Put on a blue back herring and troll the trees...
