South Carolina Fishing Report

Lakes & Reservoirs

Conditions : Lake Moultrie: •Bream: Good. Captain Steve English reports that between moon phases bream pull out slightly towards stumps and other cover just off from their shallow spawning areas, but with today’s full moon bream are back on the banks spawning. Aggressive spawning fish will take a variety of natural and artificial baits. There are always fish that can be found on the deeper brush piles but this is the time to look up shallow.

•Catfish: Fair to good. Captain Jim Glenn reports that things have picked up somewhat for catfish, and in a couple of days of drifting in 10-20 feet this week his boat has caught good numbers of channels and blues. There have also been some anglers fishing stinkbait and catching surprisingly large blues up to about 15 pounds in isolated locations around the lower end of Lake Marion and in the diversion canal. While it’s not unusual to catch small blues on stinkbait, catching bigger ones that way is somewhat unexpected. There have also been some good night time catches in the diversion canal and both anchoring and drifting in the lower lake.

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.
