New to lake fishing in SC..tips?

Recommended Posts

I’m fairly new to the South Carolina area and grew up fishing off shore fish and big game. I usually have no problem in the summer but could use some tips for tackle use etc, in the cold waters. I don’t fish on a boat and usually fish near rock piles(just seems that’s whats always around). I used crankbaits today and a few different jigs.

Big lakes like Murray, Hartwell, or Marion and Moultrie or ponds? Northern or western SC or down in the Lowcountry? The weather in the Lowcountry is a lot different than the other parts of the state, especially this time of year.

 

I live in the Lowcountry and it can be 28 degrees in the morning and 70 degrees in the afternoon this time of year. In the ponds that I fish the bite is slow. The baitfish aren't visible around the shorelines (at least the times I fish) and I haven't seen bass approaching the shore to feed.

 

Not much has been working lately other than a Shadow Rap Shad. Most of the hits I have had with the Shadow Rap are in deeper channels. However, deeper is a relative term. The channels are only about 8 feet deep but there is a wide swath of shallower waters along the banks of the channels. I've also had some hits on a Teckel Sprinker frog when there has been mostly cloudy conditions.
