Santee Lakes Fishing Report

Santee Lakes Fishing Report

by Santee Lakes Staff

How's it going everyone. A little night fishing throwback since the first night fishing event is just 8 days away! Night fishing goes from 5-11:30 PM and is a separate fishing permit than the day permit. Make sure to bring a lantern, and we ask that you don't use any radios or speakers due to loud noise potentially upsetting our neighbors. It's going to be a fun time and if you've never been before you should try it out! 

The bass bite has been solid 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 have been biting too! We last stocked lakes 4 and 7 on May 19th with catfish, 500 lbs. in each lake. We will be stocking lakes 2 and 3 this Friday with 500 lbs. each! The catfish have been biting the best off of stinkbait, shrimp, mackerel, or nightcrawlers! Also, if you don't already have plans for Fathers day bring him out to the lakes! In the stock we're doing for June 16th there will be 40 tagged fish! If you catch a tagged catfish you'll receive a $25 dollar gift card! 

Plenty of action and fun events coming up 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!
