Springtime has finally arrived after a brutal winter, and with turkeys gobbling and azaleas blooming, the warming, shallow waters of Lake Moultrie welcome back the big green fish with the big mouths and the swollen bellies.
If youre looking for springtime crappie, April can often provide the best fishing of the year. This is particularly true at Lake Wateree, a mid-state hotspot known for producing lots of crappie and plenty of slabs.
If youre serious about tagging a gobbler in South Carolinas Upstate region, its important to hunt the first week of the season that begins April 1. According to data compiled by the S.C. Department of Natural Resources, hunter success is highest in that first week.
