Fri, Feb. 29, 2008

Mountains Area
LAKE JOCASSEE: Trout: Red hot. Troll from the surface down to 40 feet using Bad Creek trolling spoons. Also try drifting live bait (large shiners or herring) in the same zone. Largemouth and Redeye Bass: Very good. Try jigging vertically in 60 to 80 feet of water using ¾ €”ounce jigging spoons and jig n pigs. Also try fishing plastics such as finesse worms and trick worms deep and just off the bottom. Smallmouth Bass: Fair.
LAKE KEOWEE: Largemouth and Spotted Bass: Excellent. An incredible 5 fish 28.92 pound limit was caught in a tournament last weekend. Fish the backs of creeks in 5 to 15 feet of water using Lake Fork Swim Baits. Jerkbaits are also producing in the same areas. Also try shaky head jigs in 15 to 30 feet of water and try fishing boat docks using a 1/8 ounce to 3/16 ounce jig head with a watermelon or pumpkinseed worm. Crappie: Fair. It€™s still early for crappie but try minnows and jigs in 25-30 feet of water around brush piles and other structure.
LAKE HARTWELL: Striped and Hybrid Bass: Good. The striper bite is heating up on Lake Hartwell as the water temperature makes its way from the 40s to the low 50s. Largemouth Bass: Good. Largemouth bass are on the brink of spawning. For now fish jigging spoons in 45 to 50 feet of water, but expect the fish already visible in the backs of pockets to stage for the spawn and start feeding soon. Crappie: Good. The crappie are feeding well in 8 to 20 feet of water. Locate brush piles and fish minnows and colorful jigs.

Piedmont Area
LAKE RUSSELL: Striped and Hybrid Bass: Fair. Fish early morning with bucktails, cut and live herring and jigs, especially when water is running below the dam. Largemouth Bass: Good. Fish crankbaits about 20 feet out from the banks. Crappie: Excellent. Lake Russell anglers continue to catch lots of crappie. Fish in 12-18 feet of water around treetops using small minnows. Limits of very nice fish are being taken daily. Catfish: Good, using cut bait and nightcrawlers along the bottom.
LAKE THURMOND: Striped and Hybrid Bass: Fair. Pull planers in 45-55 feet of water and fish downlines with live bait. Largemouth Bass: Fair to good. Largemouth have moved shallower over the last week or two and the fishing has improved. Crappie: Very good. The crappie bite continues to improve and catches of real slabs are being reported. The upper end of the lake is better for crappie right now, particularly from Snap and Pistol Creek down to Landrum.
LAKE WYLIE: Largemouth Bass: Very good. Look for shallow areas with easy access to deep water but don€™t venture up the creeks yet. Crappie: Good. After a slow winter the crappie fishing is fast improving. Limits of crappie are being taken fishing shallow using 1/32 ounce jigs in bright Chartreuse. Target docks with brush in 4-6 feet of water. Once the water hits 55 degrees the trolling action will pick up; if water is being pulled out of the lake trolling in South Fork is productive now. White Perch: Very good. Fishermen who locate large schools of white perch report catching 50 or 100 nice fish.

Midlands Area
LAKE GREENWOOD: Striped Bass: Fair. Locate striped bass by finding feeding gulls. Use jigging spoons in 18-20 feet of water. Largemouth Bass: Fair to good. Jigs, spinnerbaits, and crankbaits are all productive right now. Look for fish to continue to move into shallower water as the pre-spawn approaches. Crappie: Good. Fish in 18-20 feet around mid-lake structure using small minnows or jigs. Look for schools of fish on the depth-finder before anchoring as fish are grouped very tightly in certain areas €“ and not in others.

LAKE WATEREE: Striped Bass: Good. Fish in the lower part of the lake using topwaters, shiners, or goldfish. Largemouth Bass: Fair to Good. The bite is inconsistent from day to day but fishermen are catching some nice stringers. Look for higher water temperatures in the stained water higher up the lake €“ 55 or 56 degrees instead of the typical 50-52 degrees. In plastic worms try green pumpkin or red shad colors and also fish dark jigs. Crappie: Great. As the water warms the crappie bite continues to get better and better. Catfish: Very good. Multiple 40 pounders have been taken in the last two weeks. Target big blue cats using cut bait fished on the edges of holes.

??? Hybrids in Lake Wylie? Told by SCDNR Biologist that they will NEVER put hyrids in Catawba River Chain for fear of ruining Santee striper population.

White bass in Lake Wylie? WHERE?! Haven't caught a WB in Wylie in over 2 years. The waccamaw(white perch) have taken over as the dominent panfish now. Maybe I should ask SCDNR WHY they stopped stocking WB...
