April is an angler’s 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.

Get the Fatsack app to help your fishing

Every angler has heard that keeping a log of your fishing trips will help you catch more fish. Many fishermen keep some kind of journal, but just like weight loss and exercise plans, they get bogged down with time demands and too many details, and they soon give it up.

Why paddle for bass?

Ah, April. Turkeys are gobbling, flowers are blooming and bass are bedding. Continuing our series of how to rig for and target one species each month, the good news is there really isn’t any special rigging necessary to fish for black bass. Unlike crappie, stripers or catfish, bass fishing is a one-pole affair — or at least one at a time.
