Fishing has been great! Even with the cold front we caught some nice bass yesterday fishing depressions and drops. The big slabs are staging in the major fingers in 10 to 15 feet. There were some big cats caught this weekend, with an 85 pounder in the mix.! Fish the lower end of the canal where it dumps into Moultrie. Stripers are heading upstream to spawn. The lake is up and the current is ripping, we should have another great spawn this year!

Cat fished yesterday, caught some good fish with three pigs. still drifting Gizzard Shad, but a little shallower yesterday. There are a lot of three to six pound bass being caught in shallow water with this weather we\'ve been having. Crappie are still biting hard on brush - get out and sink some Wax Myrtle bushes with concrete blocks and you\'ll be in business. http://www.blackscamp.com

Best fishing this time of year as not man fishermen are out. Today was overcast with 5 mph winds out of the east. Got out on Lake Moultrie at 8am and immediately ran into schooling stripers with about 500 gulls, pelicans and loons on top of the fish. Caught 25 nice ones really fast on sassy shads and bucktails.

Santee Cooper Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The crappie should be very aggressive and feeding well. Feeding should be very heavy right now especially in the morning and evenings and Spawn Should be really fueled up with some fish on their beds currently and actively doing their business. Focus fishing in the upper half and ends of the tributary arms. Best thing this time of year is to fish a little faster with throwing cranking jigs and small crappie crank baits utilizing and fishing different depths until you find a good concentration of fish. Start at the mouths of the arms and work your way back to the shallow spawning areas and fish hard and fast until you find them. Try finding some shallow ditches coming off the channels and heading to shallow spawning areas. On Sunny or warmer days hit those shallow areas hard. NOW IS THE TIME LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, IT IS ON!!

Santee Cooper Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Use live brim or goldfish,cutbait,nightcrawlers,stinkbait and chicken livers. Best time to catch
catfish would be early in the morning or late in the evening and after dark.
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The catfish family comprises of blue catfish, flathead catfish and channel catfish. Since catfish are warm water fish, they arenít going to be very active in this water temperature. They will still be feeding, but catfish will only be found very deep and feeding very slowly. Your best bet is give some of the more active fish species in your lake a shot until the cats are active again.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be another full moon coming up here in a few days. The fisherman should never use this as an excuse to not get on the water. The affects of the moon can only enhance the outcome of a day's fishing not decrease potential catch for today. On days without the new or full moon, all other factors including weather, barometric pressure, wind and cloud cover will make up today's equation for success.
