    I am about as excited as an old catfisherman can get about going fishing!! This ain't bragging I just had to share this with you guys. I think you will understand my excitement. My son who lives in SC just called to invite me as a guest to go with him and his church group to fish the Santee Cooper next March. Don't know all the particulars yet but it will be a guided 2 day excursion and to make the offer more enticing my son wants to pay all expenses!!!!!!

    Talk about getting a return on all those trying times raising a teenager to adulthood!!!!! lol...

    ditto on the pictures! My Aunt & Uncle live there. They report some amazing fish stories! Hopeful that when TONTO gets this whole "workin" habit out of his system (down to less than 3 months) we will make time to head that direction also!

    Sounds like a great time with a great son. I know a guy who used to live there, and his stories are awsome.

    Well, Cuz. all I can say is "GREAT!" I've fished Santee-Cooper and it is a truly unique place. My largest Rod&Reel catfish to date came from Santee-Cooper, a 53# flathead and I'm always looking to break that. Hope you can tie into a whopper!
    Good Luck
