I am new to catfishing and new to the area I live in now and I am going to start fishing in a lake nearby. I don't know what is even in the lake, but it is a South Carolina DNR lake so it should in theory be well taken care of. There is a limit of three catfish per person on this paticular lake so they must be in there. Now what exactly do you look for when approaching a new lake? Its only 70 acres and you can fish for the most part the entire way around it. I have attached a pic from google maps to show the layout of the lake.
