Are there any guides in Santee Cooper, North Carolina for catfish and do you have any tips for catching catfish in Santee Cooper?

I’m going to Santee Cooper, NC to catch catfish. Have you heard of any guides or catching tips in Santee Cooper?

The first one that comes to mind is Hoods Guide Service. They work the Santee Cooper, North Carolina area and have a reputation for bring in the big catfish. Although the record fish caught when using this guide service was caught back in 2001, it was a sixty-five pound catfish. That is a big fish that was caught, but I still feel that guides cannot say this will happen all the time. Yes, there are places to catch the big fish, but it is a rarity in most cases. Catching the big ones does not happen all that much. Keith and Jason Catfish Guide Service using drift fishing as a way to catch some nice sized catfish. They fish Lake Moultrie and Lake Marion. They do have a reputation for catching the good-sized catfish. You can schedule nighttime or daytime fishing trips. If you were looking to catch a nice size Arkansas Blue catfish, this would be the service to use. If you are looking for a great deal, you might want to check out Jackson’s Fishing Guide Service. They seem to always have a boat full of fish when they dock. They have a way to get you ready for the trip. If you do not get a fish, you do not pay. That is the best you can do for a fishing trip. I would guess this is their way of saying you are going to catch a catfish. If you are looking to catch the big catfish, you are going to use a presentation of another fish. This should be a fish that has some spunk so it keeps the interest of the catfish. You will want to use a heavy weight test line and at least an seven foot pole with a spinner reel.


Dan Eggertsen is a fellow catfish fishing enthusiast to the point of obsession. :) He's been providing solid advice on catfish fishing since 2004.
