Largemouth Bass

Santee Lakes Fishing Report

by Santee Lakes Staff

Howdy! Today the spotlight is on Kevin for catching this hefty bass the over the weekend! The bass bite has been hot with plenty of action on all lakes. More reports coming from Lake 5 in particular. The best bait to use right now for bass are spinners, crankbaits, swimbaits, and a few reports of top water working also.

The catfish bite has been good also! We last stocked lakes 3 and 6 on May 5th with catfish, 500 lbs. in each lake. We will be stocking lakes 4 and 7 this Friday with 500 lbs. each! The catfish have been biting the best off of stinkbait, shrimp, mackerel, or nightcrawlers!

Plenty of action you don't want to be missing out on right now so make sure to come on out!

If you're feeling hungry while you're out here fishing stop on by Angry Pete's Pizza! Located next door to the general store they serve Pizza, sandwiches, burgers, sweets, and beer! We hope to see you out here!
