I have spent the last year learning Lake Jocassee from a bass fishing perspective on a lake known primarily for it's large trout.There are some really big fish in this place!

My first trip on 8/17/2005
I caught an 11 lb.largemouth on a bill norman DD-22 crankbait on the fourth cast.

Talk about spoiled from the get-go!The lake is currently 15 feet low due to low rainfall making it an excellent time to find deep brushpile locations.

The smallmouths and spotted bass are hitting plastic worms in 25'to30' of water fished very slowly on the bottom around the old treetops you can see now the water is low.

The largemouth seem to have moved up the old river channels and are taking jigs and worms along the edge in blowndown trees.

I've never limited out at Jocassee,but the fish I'm catching are really gooduns, (5lb,2oz smallmouth,6lb spotted,8lb largemouth and a bunch of 2-5pounders in the last month using the above mentioned methods.Don't neglect midday fishing at this time of year at these depths! Good fishing to you.
