Lake Hartwell Boating and Fishing Destination

Lake Hartwell is a large reservoir on the border of the states of South Carolina and Georgia and is a major outdoors destination for the local areas, with several boat ramps and marinas to choose from when you come to Lake Hartwell. The lake is created by the Hartwell Dam on the Savannah river creating a lake that is almost 56,000acres of water and a shorline that is over 960 miles around. There are all kinds of fish species so regardless of what you prefer to fish for there is something swimming in Lake Hartwell that you will enjoy catching. The lake is inhabited by landlocked Stripped Bass that are a blast to catch. The stripped bass will school up at certain times of year and be easily caught on a jigging spoon or a top water spook depending on the time of year.

Lake Hartwell is the home to many bass fishing tournaments including the Walmart FLW Tour, which will be holding a tournament out of Portman Shoals Marina on March 8 - March 11 2012.

      I live near Lake Hartwell and enjoyed reading this review. I remember when the lake was not there and how excited we were when it began to fill up.
