    Striped bass fishing hits its fall peak during October at the Combahee River.

    South Carolina boasts some of the best striped bass fishing in the country.

    S.C.’s bruin hunters just want their dogs to have a good time. With a growing number of black bears, that may happen.

    For Robert Chapman, it’s all about the dogs.

    In 40-plus years of traipsing the mountains of Upstate South Carolina, he has shot only a handful of black bears, but that’s of little consequence.

    Anglers who want to catch largemouths, smallmouths, spotted and Coosa bass amidst fantastic fall scenery should try this high-country lake.

    If there is another lake in South Carolina that can match Lake Jocassee for sheer beauty, it’s still on God’s drawing board.

    When fall arrives and water temperatures begin to drop, S.C. anglers can fill their coolers if they adjust to mobile speckled trout.

    As daylight lessens and the mercury mercifully stops climbing into the 90s, the opportunity to make up for lost fishing time finally arrives.

    Palmetto State inshore shrimpers use a technique that’s completely safe to fish and allows netters to load up with jumbo-size shrimp.

    The rut has a lot to do with harvesting a quality buck. Here’s how hunters can actually influence the timing and intensity of the rut at their property.

    South Carolina hunters can actually manipulate the timing of the rut to stack the odds in their favorite.
