Fishing has been great! Even with the cold front we caught some nice bass yesterday fishing depressions and drops. The big slabs are staging in the major fingers in 10 to 15 feet. There were some big cats caught this weekend, with an 85 pounder in the mix.! Fish the lower end of the canal where it dumps into Moultrie. Stripers are heading upstream to spawn. The lake is up and the current is ripping, we should have another great spawn this year!

Cat fished yesterday, caught some good fish with three pigs. still drifting Gizzard Shad, but a little shallower yesterday. There are a lot of three to six pound bass being caught in shallow water with this weather we\'ve been having. Crappie are still biting hard on brush - get out and sink some Wax Myrtle bushes with concrete blocks and you\'ll be in business. http://www.blackscamp.com

Best fishing this time of year as not man fishermen are out. Today was overcast with 5 mph winds out of the east. Got out on Lake Moultrie at 8am and immediately ran into schooling stripers with about 500 gulls, pelicans and loons on top of the fish. Caught 25 nice ones really fast on sassy shads and bucktails.

Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
76 degrees in in the largemouth bass prime water temperature range and fishing should be good right now. Baitfish are much more active in this water temperature and the largemouth bass will be feeding aggressively throughout the day. This is a great time of year to be on the water.

The entire catfish family is very active and actively feeding in this water temperature. All catfish including blue catfish, flathead and channel catfish will be looking for their next meal. Itís perfect time to get on the water and fill the freezer. Good luck out there.

Santee Cooper Spotted Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Spotted Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Spotted bass fishing is going to be pretty slow at this water temperature. Bass will typically start moving much slower and feeding less aggressive until the water temperature starts to get back down to comfortable levels. When the water temperature is up this high, get out fishing early and late and cast in the shallows. When the sun is up it will be time to get out into deeper water, try fishing some drop offs and deep channel bends.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The crescent moon will have better gravitational pull than a gibbous or half moon. However the affects of the moons gravitational will be decreased since the sun and moon aren't pulling in conjunction with one another. It's time to pay close attention to the other fishing factors in the weather to make the best decision for hitting the water.
