    I would suggest that you go to the search at the top of the page and input Santee or Lake Marion and you should get information overload.In fact if you print it all out and take it with you you wont have time to fish!!!:big_smile::wink:

    In a 14 foot boat I would suggest within swimming distance of your house!

    Jonathon, the only "Overton Road" I'm familiar with is in Santee, near I-95, and along the backwater creek there. The 14' boat would be just fine in those waters, and if the winds are calm you should be able to fish along the lake shore near the interstate. Good luck!

    I would try the areas adjacent to the river channel, in 10-25' of water. If that doesn't work, search around the channel drops. The fish are pretty much through spawning and should be working back to those areas. Don't overlook that creek, either; it may not get much fishing pressure for cats. You can get live bait right there is Santee. Use some small pieces of worms fished on the bottom and catch some white perch or bream for bait, and I almost always bait at least one line with nightcrawlers. Sometimes the largest fish of the day may hit those. :big_smile:
