Water Condition

Conditions : Lake Marion: Crappie: Fair to good. Captain Steve English (843-729-4044) reports that crappie fishing is picking up over mid-depth brush. Minnows and jigs are both catching fish.

Bass: Fair. Steve Harmon reports that we are coming into a period when bass fishing can be really good, as fish move out of their deeper haunts and towards the banks. Frogs, spinnerbaits and plastic worms fished around shallow cover should all catch fish.

Bream: Slow to fair. Captain Steve English reports that bluegill are starting to stack up on brush piles where they will take crickets and worms.

Catfish: Slow to fair. The catfish bite has been a little tough recently. Try prospecting both shallow and deep with cut bait or dip baits for channel catfish.

About: - Lake Marion and Lake Moultrie are part of the Santee Cooper lake system.  The two lake combine for over 170,000 surface arces and are joined by the 6.5 mile Diversion Canal. At this time the lakes hold a world record Channel Catfish (58 Ibs) and a Warmouth weighing 2.2 Ibs was caught in a creek a few miles from lake Marion. These lakes held the record for striped bass until 1977, its weight was 55 Ibs. State records held are: Largemouth Bass (16.2 Ibs), Black Crappie (5 Ibs), Chain (Jack) (6.4 Ibs), Channel Catfish (58 Ib.), Arkansas Blue (109.4 Ibs)

The Santee Cooper Lakes vary from shallow swamps and blackwater ponds to vast open water with a multitude of underwater structures. Lake Marion was not completely cleared, as a result, fishermen will find there are thousands upon thousands of stumps, standing dead tree trunks and live cypress trees. Lake Moultrie is more open and is 14 miles across at its widest point.

These lakes do not ice over during the winter and there is no closed season for fishing season. Weather permitting, fishermen can fish year round.
