Conditions : Lake Hartwell: •Black bass: Good. Guide Brad Fowler (864-934-5813) and tournament angler Brock Taylor says with warm weather and the full moon coming up this weekend bedding activity should be wide open from here on out, although fish will probably still be catchable on a jerkbait in the ditches first thing. After that anglers will have to go to the bank and look for beds. Working soft plastics slowly, including Carolina rigged worms/ lizards and shakey head worms, should catch fish. Not all fish will bed at once, and spawning activity should continue through May. For the next month fish at all three stages of the spawn – pre-spawn, spawning and post-spawn – should be catchable.

•Crappie: Slow to fair. Captain Bill Plumley reports that after a few good weeks crappie fishing has slowed way down in the last few days. It appears that the cold weather may have set the fishing back. A few fish can still be caught in 2-4 feet of water, and it is expected that this shallow bite should pick up again once temperatures stabilize.
