Lake Marion Sponsored by
Date 21-Feb-15
Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : Lake Marion: •Striped bass: Fair. Captain Jim Glenn reports that striper anglers should continue to follow the bait schools, as striper will be keying on stressed and dying threadfin shad with water temperatures below 50 degrees. Feeding gulls may give away the locations of the bait, and fishing live bait, trolling lures, or jigging spoons will all catch fish.

•Crappie and bream: Fair to good. Captain Steve English reports that crappie remain in deep water over brush piles, and he is catching fish 20-28 feet down over brush in 30-42 feet of water on minnows. Good electronics allow anglers to mark fish so that they can concentrate on the most productive brush. Bluegill can be caught off the back of the same brush where it drops off into deeper water using a cricket fished on a drop-shot rig. For both species the best bite by far has been in the lower lake and fishing in the upper lake has been tough.

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.
