South Carolina Fishing Report

Conditions : Lake Thurmond: •Black bass: Very good. Buckeye Lures in Augusta reports that bass fishing is very strong on Clarks Hill and the spawn is well underway. The majority of fish are still in pre-spawn mode, but each day more and more fish get on the beds. As would be expected pretty much all the fishing activity is up shallow around spawning coves, pockets, secondary points and shoreline cover. Mop Jigs, any creature baits, Trick Worms rigged on a Spot Remover, as well as any other typical pre-spawn/ spawn lure will catch fish.

•Striped and Hybrid Bass: Very good. Captain William Sasser reports that striper fishing is very strong right now on Clarks Hill, with the majority of fish being caught pulling planer boards across secondary points in the mid-lake. The planer boards have been rigged with 1/8 ounce egg sinkers to make the herring run about 15 feet deep. Around the dam hybrids have also been caught pulling planer boards as well as tied up to the cable with down lines, and bank anglers on the South Carolina side have also been catching fish on cut bait off the rocks. Some school activity has been reported in the mid-afternoons.
