Susan & John Mills Master Lake Hartwell

Susan and John Mills took first place on Lake Hartwell on Saturday, April 12. Their sack of five fish weighed in at 14-pounds, 5-ounces. The Mills, from Leesville, South Carolina, were sight fishing in the clearer waters nearer the Hartwell dam. By 10:30 am, they had not caught a keeper and were concerned that their strategy was not going to produce. A recent rise in water level had taken beds deeper and made them harder to see. But, within the next four hours, they culled through 7 nice bass to come in with the winning weight.
