Bartletts Ferry (Lake Harding)

Lake Harding is a really awesome place that I hold pretty high in my coolest places to fish... My Grandfather had a house on the lake, and my father fished here as a child. I have recently been fishing this lake more than the closer alternative of West Point because of the difference in water levels. Lake Harding is managed by Georgia Power and is a "recreational" lake, so when they release water to extreme lows on West Point, Lake Harding will reamain full.
I put in at Idle Hour ramp, well I began to put in, first I pull my truck to the ramp and start getting my gear ready. I hop out of the truck and grab my rods and paddle, and decide to change lures from a buzzbait to a spook. I get the spook tied on and make a cast to set the reel, the bait hits the water, a very eager spotted bass decided to slam it. Before I have the kayak off the truck I have a fish in hand.
The rest of the day went about the same, no giant fish in the boat but had a great time catching the over-active small guys. There were six in about an hour and a half, then I decided to do some wandering and see what some other areas of the lake were looking like. I think I have found some new spots that will hold some nice bass.
