I need some help please. I am an avid catfisherman on the Pee Dee river and I convinced my step-dad to start fishing with me about 3 years ago. He lives about 45 minutes from Lake Marion and we mostly fish from either John C. Land or Alex Harvin landings. We usually end up fishing the channel markers out from Goat Island or near the gates at the dam. Either I suck at locating fish (I mark them on the fish finder But I don't have a lowrance) or we are doing something wrong. We have tried herring, shad, bream, shrimp, and nightcrawlers. The best I have done in Santee is about 10 lbs one time and plenty of white perch. Any help would be appreciated, not just for me but for my dad. This man stepped in over 30+ years ago and raised 5 boys, none of his biologically. He can't swim a lick but I honestly believe he doesn't need to. If there ever will be another man who can walk on water, I think it will be him! Thanks to everyone. R.K.
