The Bassmaster Classic and Lake Hartwell is where it's at

by Jay Hufnagel
  All it took was a major fishing tournament, a little rain, warm weather, and things have really heated up on Lake Hartwell…Real Estate that is. My phone was ringing off the hook this morning with lake property inquiries. Hopefully that’ll be just the start. Many potential buyers have had one eye on the economy and the other on lake levels. But today things were different. You could feel a little excitement in the air. Lake home owners, fishing tournament enthusiasts, and area visitors were all out to see what was happening on the lake.
  And, the fish are biting! After showing property this morning, I dropped by Portman Marina to see where all the action is happening. ESPN2 has a huge pavilion set up to broadcast the tournament over the next few days. Charlie Hartley, from Grove City, Ohio placed first on Friday with five fish and a total weigh in of over 21 lbs. The largest fish caught yesterday weighed in at over 6 lbs. Now that’s a fish!
Check out the Bassmaster Classic website and the Anderson Independent website for the latest on the tournament. And, if you’re near the lake, don’t miss watching the boats go out tomorrow morning at 7:15AM.

Lake Hartwell 38th Bassmaster Classic, February 22-24

by Jay Hufnagel
 Don’t forget – The 38th Bassmaster Classic kicks off this Friday on Lake Hartwell. Boats will launch at Portman Marina, off South Carolina, exit 14 (I-85). This event is more than bass fishing. Many of the national qualifiers consider this the grand championship of Bass Fishing.
This year it’ll be a little more interesting with the lake down about 12 feet. Fishermen will have to be more creative on where to fish and what to use for bait. ESPN2 is suppose to provide daily coverage. You can bet, I’ll be down on my dock giving some tips to the fortunate sole that tries to catch “Bubba” that’s made his home under my ramp.
By the way, the picture in this blog isn’t a Bassmaster Champion (in his dreams). It’s my brother-in-law, Todd, with a fish he caught near our home.
