A great time to feel blue

In terms of fishing opportunities, South Carolina is a unique state for a number of reasons, and the presence of blueback herring in a lot of our major reservoirs is a big one. When these baitfish are in a lake in good numbers, they make the bass and stripers and hybrids act differently.

Sink a Senko this month

April might not be the No. 1 month to head out in search of a lunker largemouth bass in South Carolina’s reservoirs; that’s probably how I look at March. But I think April and May are months when it’s just fun to go fishing, even if you’re not a pro.

Dial up a C-rig for March

It’s sort of old fashioned, and it doesn’t nearly have the appeal of the latest hot fishing fad, but even if your tackle box is filled with Alabama rigs, you’d better know how to tie and fish a Carolina rig.

Mop up a big jig fish now

I don’t make any bones about what and how I like to fish in February. I am going to tie on a big Mop Jig, because February — and March — are the two best months here in South Carolina to catch a big bass. I think a big Mop Jig is the No. 1 bait, because with a soft-plastic trailer, it’s about the best way to imitate a crawfish that we have.

Down time is for tackle

No matter whether you’re a full-time professional fishermen like I am or a weekend fishermen like I was at one time — I figure most of you fit into this category — it’s a good idea to set aside at least some time every year to take a day and organize all of our fishing tackle and lures.

Be a December fish scout

When it comes to deer hunting, none of us mind spending a few days in the woods before the season, doing our scouting, setting up trail cameras, getting a bead on where that big buck might show up.

For November bass anglers, it's time to fish, or cut bait

November is a month of choice for bass fishermen around South Carolina. Things can go one of two ways. You can either plan to fish through the rest of the fall and into the winter, or you can put your tackle away and concentrate on deer hunting until New Year’s, and maybe duck hunting for a month after that.

October: Great jig month

I know that lots of sportsmen turn their attention this time of year to deer hunting, and I’m probably one of them. But I keep in mind that bass fishing in October on a beautiful South Carolina like is about as good as it gets. First, the recreational boating traffic is, for the most part, gone. Second, I don’t have any Bassmaster tournaments to fish this late in the year. Third, a lot of guys are in their tree stands. Fourth, the weather has cooled off and the fish are biting. It’s just one of the best times of year to go out and try to catch a big fish.
