* Water temperature is rising and the American shad run is increasing. Fishing has been good in the Cooper River Tailrace Canal near Moncks Corner, but varies with time of day and discharge from Pinopolis Dam. Anglers have had good success fishing from the bank on the Rediversion Canal near St. Stephen as well. Bank access is available from a parking lot at the end of Platt Road.

Lake Marion:
  • Catfish: Fair. Captain Jim Glenn reports that the blue catfish bite remains fairly erratic, especially after the snow. Baitfish are schooled up in water 25 to 35 ft deep, and catfish are in and around those schools. Fish near the bottom or with baits suspended in or just below the bait schools. On Lake Marion Li'l N8s Bait and Tackle in Sumter also reports that the bite slowed after the snow. The best bite has been on ledges about 28-30 feet deep beside 40 feet of water. Most people are using cut blueback herring, available at Li'l N8s, for bait.
  • Largemouth bass: Slow. Captain Inky Davis reports that the warming trend this weekend should bring the fish shallower and make the fish more active. Remember that muddy water will warm faster and hold the heat longer than clear water. As temperatures raise so will the bass.
  • Crappie: Captain Steve English advises that a warming trend should bring the crappie shallower. The bite should start around Angel's Cove, Eutaw Springs behind Bell's Marina, and Crappie Neck just off the canal. Look in 10-12 feet of water around brush, and then try drifting. Fish will stage on brush piles as they come in to spawn.
