I have not fished Santee for a couple of years. I'm planning to fish 8/24-26. I'm staying in Charleston and will haul the boat back and forth so I can put in and/or fish at any part of either lake or in the tailrace. I'm targeting blues and/or flatheads with live bait. If anyone who has current information would advise me on locations, drifting the flats vs. anchoring on the channel edges, daylight vs. night fishing, shallow vs. deep water, current best baits and where to buy them, etc., I would appreciate it. I'm fishing in a Lund boat with a pretty good bait tank. I grew fishing the lower lake (although that was 50 years ago...OK it was 60 years ago but who's counting). So I know the basics...just would like to have some guidence on current conditions from someone who's reliable and the folks on the BOC are the best source I know of. Thanks in advance to anyone who responds and I'll let you know how the trip turned out when I get back home.
