Meet up with some fellas in SC today to fish hartwell in the yaks. The lake is lower than lanier, but is coming up! We fished in the middle of a creek and everyone caught fish. It was a nice mixed bag of fish, catfish, hybrids, largemouth bass, stripers and even a white bass! Fish were landed on live herring, trout but my most effective lure was a flex-it spoon vertical jigged! Caught a ten pound striper that hit the spoon on the drop, man that thing pulled me in circles!

Plan to fish there more in 09!
