Lake Moultrie Sponsored by
Date 31-Oct-14
Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : Lake Moultrie: •Crappie: Good to very good. Crappie fishing has been strong and fish are really ganged up on brushpiles. Numbers of fish are down from last year, but on both lakes the sizes have been outstanding. Fish remain suspended about 8-18 feet down around the tops of brush piles in approximately 15-28 feet of water. Minnows have been working too well to try anything else.

•Bream: Good. Some small bream remain in the shallows, but most of the better fish are stacked up on mid-depth brush piles in 16-22 feet of water. Fish about 8-14 feet deep with crickets.

•Catfish: Slow to fair. There is no real productive Santee Cooper catfish pattern to fish most of the time, and cooling water temperatures will have fish scattered until later in the winter. Quality catchable fish are not being caught with any regularity right now, but just recently Lake Marion seems to be producing slightly better numbers of quality fish.

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.
