Charter with Captain Mike Harter!

If you’re ready to have fun fishing on Lake Hartwell, book a trip with Captain Mike Harter! Having logged many hours on Lake Hartwell, Captain Michael can tell you all about the local fishery.

Around here it’s common to catch Largemouth Bass, Spotted Bass, Striped Bass, and more if you come at the right time of year. During the trip, you might be spinning, popping, trolling, jigging, bottom fishing, or maybe something more specialized in this area.

If you’re traveling with the family, you will be glad to know that kids are welcome aboard! Be sure to ask if child-sized life vests are available, otherwise, you should bring your own. And, you can’t go wrong with snacks so that nobody gets grumpy on an empty belly!

Before coming aboard, you’ll need to buy a local fishing license for everyone in your group. This information is usually available online, or you can ask the captain. Some species might be protected or require a tag to keep them, so make sure you know what to expect.
Don’t forget to bring sunglasses, sunscreen (non-spray), bottled water, and a hat. If you’d like to bring other drinks, just ask. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, just avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles.
