    hey guys i thought i would pass on the news for those that fish santee. the fish are biting really good in the lower lake. my dad and i fished friday and saturday. we had to catch around 100 fish in two days. we went out at 6.00 saturday morning and i had lost count on the fish by 8.30, i know we had 15-16 at that time. they where mostly 2-6lbs. blues and about 20 percent channels. we where drifting. the water saturday was rough 5-6 ft waves and the fish where wearing us out. i did get lucky and catch a 40lb flat friday in the middle of the day. we fished a tournament on saturday and got our first win. we had 5 fish saturday for a weight of 69.4 lbs for the win and thats a low weight for santee but the weather was bad and this was a daytime event. cmj and i are going back next weekend. will be at blacks camp.

    Congrats on your win and your catches. Glad yall made it back safe, Santee is awfull dangerous when that wind blows. Its like being in the Atlantic, except for all those submerged trees.

    Michael, I'm gonna start hiding out and following you and roundhill to see what you guys are doing right. :lol:
    Just kidding. Both of you have helped me with my fishing success, for sure, and it's much appreciated. I want to get back up there this week, but right now, I'm not sure if I can make it or not.
    Catrod, what are you doing standing beside my boat?

    Michael, that flathead pic makes a really good avatar. I kinda figured you'd have one with y'all holding up the winner's check from the tourney. :wink:

    I think I'll follow along behind ya, and pick up some those culls. They'd be good enough for me. LOL

    Thats great, Michael. Congradulations. :worship: Doing it with your father makes it priceless. I doubt if I would have stayed on the water if there were 5'-6' waves.
