Black Bass Slam

Black BassThe SCDNR Black Bass Slam celebrates the black bass diversity throughout South Carolina while promoting angling opportunities across the state. This slam challenges anglers to seek new fishing spots and target species that they may have never caught. The idea is to introduce new habitats to anglers while promoting education and conservation of our black bass species and the waters they call home. SCDNR encourages everyone to get out and responsibly enjoy the state's outdoor resources as they pursue a successful slam!
