How do you catch catfish on the Santee Cooper?

Santee Cooper is the angler’s catfish heaven. The question should be what should I do with all the catfish I catch rather than how do you catch catfish on the Santee Cooper. You will find blue catfish, channel catfish and flathead catfish. If you dream and think about catfish all the time, this is the place you want to go for some incredible catfish fishing. The blue catfish record is one hundred and nine pounds and the flathead record is seventy-seven pounds. Those are some impressive weights. Stinky bait and minnows are the way to catch the catfish. More often, it is not how you fish with the bait, but where you fish the Santee Copper. Fish by the shallow humps, blackwater ponds and under water stumps. These areas are always the best place to catch a cat or two. Fish the Moultrie Lake any time of the year and you will have your fill of catfish. The lake never ices over during the colder months. This mean you will have a chance to fish any time of the year. Use some stinky bait or minnows that are big and you can catch some nice sized catfish. The weights to catch are about forty pounds. It is very possible to catch a fish this big when you offer the right bait and in the right area. You will never have to worry about not catching a catfish when you fish the Santee Cooper. If you do fish this area, you can count on using a boat for better results.
