Been on Lake Hartwell fishing three days this week. The fish are still scattered but we manage to trip over a few nice stripers each guided fishing trip. Have been getting most fish on flat-lined spinning rods with no weight, no hardware and long leaders rigged with herring. Rigs on side planers with any hardware is not getting hit, so fish are real shy for some reason. Has been a good bite in the middle of the day and afternoon most days even when it starts out cloudy and brightens by midday. Lost a monster yesterday that ran through some bridge pilings before we could get on top of her. Loving this nicer weather.
