September starts over

I wait all summer for September, because in my opinion, that’s when bass fishing gets back to being good. You have shorter days, cooling air and water temperatures, and you finally get some relief from the summer heat — you can actually be more comfortable on the water.

Shallow water has never been my favorite place to catch bass, but in April in the Carolinas, you are almost sure to be casting into skinny water if you want to catch many fish.

Three bass baits for March

March is my favorite month to catch big bass in the Carolinas, because fish are stirring after largely shutting down for the winter, and they’re hungry, stoking up for the spawn and getting as big as they’ll ever be.
