    i went to tillery today and started out with plenty of bait in the cove. i then went to some old holes i knew about to fish. i got 11 blues,1 flathead an 1 channel. i kept moving around and searching but i caught fish at everyspot today. at 11.00 i came back came back to where i had started the morning and figured i would try it again. i hit the jackpot with a 62lber. my best every at tillery. only saw one boat all day and he was coming towards me when i saw him and he saw i had a nice fish on, so when i landed the fish i invited him over in my boat for a few pictures. he took a few pictures for me and said hey you got one on back here and i told him to go ahead and get em! so i returned the favor i asked of him by letting him catch fish out of my boat. now wasnt that nice of me? i even got his picture but i forgot him name.....lol. even told him about the boc and he has a friend thats a member but i forgot his name too....lol. i was excited a little bit i guess. i caught a 32lb and 23lb out of the 11 blues also. top five fish should have been close to 140lbs. pretty good day. water temp was 50 and muddy. bait was cut shad. location i forgot that too. sorry! aw and dieter i hate to tell you but you are knocked out of the hall of fame.:big_smile: sorry. heres a picture of my fish and my new friend. what a day!

    Nice fish, man that water sure is looking muddy! Maybe that seasonal weather has got them biting right again.

    Well, Tillery is a small lake compared to the santee lakes. There are no fish camps, motels, or anything like that there that I know of. Santee has several fish camps and places to stay. As far as the fishing, Tillery is my favorite because it is close to home and I know the lake.......:big_smile: but santee is a great place to go, you might want to use a guide the first time out to learn a little about it, or just read the post on this site in the S.C. category.

    now you going to start a argument with me a jeff:tounge_out: . i love santee but its takes a long time to learn all that turf. its a dangerous lake too. if your just wanting to fish for a weekend either one is good but santee first time trip you need a guide and they have plenty. tillery is okay for a do it yourself kind of thing. depending on when your going too. i tillery in the winter and santee in the summer. seems they spawn earlier at santee so when they spawn at tillery i head to santee.
