Lake Hartwell

Beatin' the Bank: 2019 Lake Hartwell BASS Elite

Beatin' the Bank: 2019 Lake Hartwell BASS Elite

Of all the events listed on this year’s Bassmaster Elite Series schedule, I was most optimistic about this one.

That may come as a shock to some of you since my favorite fishery — the St. Lawrence River — is also on the schedule. And you know how much I like that place.

The reason I wanted Hartwell was the timing. It fell dead on the spawn, and I love to sight fish. And with more than 56,000 surface acres, I knew I’d find somewhere to fish by myself.
