    Gary canal lakes hands down. I think you can only put smaller boats and jon boats in at hills.

    I agree, Canal Lakes Fish Camp. They should have bait too. 843-753-2271. Canal Lakes

    I put in at canal lakes with no problem today. They do not have bait but ned has small blueback herring for $7.00 a dozen.

    If weather permits hopefully me and one of my fishing buddies are going on monday. I'm thinking about going to randolphs and trying to drift a while and mabey fishing on the bottom some. Any ideas on which one ya'll think would produce more fish I would welcome the help.

    Will it is some tough driftin in the upper lake unless you stay in wyboo or some of the other big creeks. There were alot of guide boats out in front of the spillway and in little river today. All appeared to be anchoring and from what I heard on the radio the all averaged around 12 fish.

    Took a ride to check out area above I95 today and it looks like there wont be any fishing this spring in the cypress swamp.......its all bone dry. The area out in front of the State Park is also very low but we did see a couple of small boats put in at the lower ramp in the State Park. Poplar Creek ramps are dry but they are using the down time to extend their ramp. Did manage to spend about 100 bucks at the local Santee tackle shops on stuff ya just cant do without.......weights, line ,floats , circle hooks, new and improved rubberized dip net......list goes on and on

    Ken the fish will still be up there just in a little different area. I think you will see a better catch rate up there his year with the lower water. I bet if you could get up there in that river in the next month you can load up on them. I might slide down that way in about a month to give them a try.
