April and shallow-water bass form a strong bond with fishermen. It is that time of year when bass are roaming the shallows and the water is warm enough for an aggressive bite.
This month brings hordes of anglers to lakes throughout South Carolina, and as far as shallow-water fishing, Lake Wateree ranks very high.
Wateree is considered by many to be an ideal spring reservoir. Theres an abundance of shallow cover to congregate bass: weeds, brush, stumps, logs, docks and rocky shorelines. Theres also an abundance of shallow flats, drops, ledges, humps and points at a wide variety of depths that hold fish. Whatever migration stage the bass are in, there is ample identifiable structure to fish.
