Conditions : Lake Thurmond: •Black bass: Good. Buckeye Lures in Augusta reports that some really quality tournament bags have been caught recently, with 27- and 28-pound stringers winning Saturday morning open tournaments on the lake. Two primary patterns have been effective; first, fishing channel drops and main channels coming into creeks in 20-40 feet of water. Fishing Goby Sleds with Zoom Ultravibe Speed Craws has been working for these fish. The second main pattern has been fishing in the backs of pockets in 10-30 feet of water with Mop Jigs. While fish are still in a winter pattern, they are setting up for the prespawn and many of the channels that they are in are as little as ¼ mile away from the spawning flats. The big fish are often the first to move up.

Striped and Hybrid Bass: Fair to good. Captain William Sasser reports that the bulk of the striper are in the mid-lake and they are making their way down towards them dam. His boat is starting to catch them off points, with most of the better fish being caught right on the bottom in 65-70 feet of water. Apparently the bait is down there and they are catching good numbers of 8-10 pound fish. Hybrids are also starting to show up all around the dam, and anglers are catching them on down-lines fished 20-40 feet down. Finally, there has been a little bit of surface activity right around daylight off points near the dam.
