Lake Hartwell - Broyles Landing July 12th
The lake is completely full and crystal clear. I fished a small night tournament on the south end of the lake from 7 pm to 2 am. My strategy consisted primarily fishing main lake points, but it did not take long to figure out that the points were not holding fish. This is hard to describe, but I fished the sides of points that were between two pockets where the bottom sloped away very quickly. The banks that I fished went to 16 foot or deeper in 10 or 12 feet.
I threw an Alabama rig briefly with no response from the fish. I caught one on a sexyshad crankbait in 14 foot of water and 8 on a green pumpkin shakey head worm from 6 foot to 16 foot of water.
The bite was actually pretty good until about an hour after dark and then it shutdown completely.
If i remember correctly, the surface water temperature was 84 degrees at about 6:30 pm.
I do not have any pictures to go along with this, but it does give you an idea of what I found.
