Ask Steve Chanilo of Murrells Inlet Outpost what he’s fishing for this month, and he’ll sound like a broken record. That’s because he believes in the “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” approach.

Time for the big chill

One of the biggest challenges for anglers this month is keeping things cold, starting with food and beverages and ending with the fish they want to haul back to the dock.

Fortunately, they have more options than ever when it comes to coolers and accessories, but once anglers leave the dock, they have to make whatever ice they have last as long as possible.
