April is an anglerís bass fishing heaven

April is probably my favorite month to fish in South Carolina, because there’s so much going on. The crappie are still biting, the bluegills are biting, the stripers will still be active, and you can catch bass most any way you want. You will have prespawn fish, spawning fish and postspawn fish on all of our lakes this month, so you can fish the way you like to and catch fish. It really would be nice to get out and turkey hunt for a couple of hours, then spend the rest of the day on the water.

Two barrel swivels are sometimes better than a three-way swivel

Three-way swivels are great for setting up a number of different fishing rigs. One of the most popular is tying the main line to one eye, a short leader with a lure to another and a longer leader with a second lure to a third eye. This puts two lures in the same vicinity, increasing your chance at hooking a fish, but when fishing in the middle of schooling fish, this can cause a problem.
