I'm in my 50's and have been fishing since I was a kid but until the past year I had not fished for a while. I'm a full time, single Dad with an 11 year old son that has picked up the fishing bug so now we fish a LOT!. Where we live in Bluffton, SC we have a dozen or so lagoons in our neighborhood so we pack our gear, jump on our bikes, and pick a lagoon.

 

Pre-spawn fishing was great down here and we were regularly pulling in 2-4 pounders. Strictly catch and release for us. Not bad for small lagoons. With the Post-spawn and warming waters things have quieted down and most hits have been juveniles with the occasional 2-3 pounder. Pumpkinseed Senkos and jig and pigs have been our go to baits, although we're starting to mix that up a bit now with the warmer waters.

 

With the foliage in bloom it's also getting tougher to fish through the deep weeds and grasses along the banks. That might not be a big deal up north, but down here we have lots of alligators. Some very big alligators. It's not only dangerous with them laying along the shore or just under the water near shore, but also in open water. Sometimes it's a race to land your catch while a gator is bearing down on the fish you just hooked.

 

For those reasons night fishing is not an option for us. We fish evenings until just before sundown, but definitely don't hang around after dark. Still, we enjoy our time out there and this evening we're going to try another new lagoon.

Hello & Welcome to Bass Resource ~ Nice Intro.

As a Basshead from & living in the north, I'm thankful that I do not have to deal with those over-sized crocodilians. 

However, enduring this every year seems 'almost' fatal.
