sorry for the additional post, but i'm trying to get my 10 so i can post pics & reply to personal messages. does anyone know how to successfully night fish at santee. i do o.k. during the day, but i'd like to learn how to fish at night. i thought maybe someone would have some tips on catching bait and where & how to fish, or maybe we could hook up one weekend & fish together. my dad has a place at hill's landing.

thanks & good luck to everyone, mark

As a general rule of thumb I like to fish the lake during the day and fish the santee river, rediversion canal or the tailrace canal at night. I use a high pressure sodium light and generator to catch my bait, but herring is usually availabe to buy locally. If you try thr santee river just make sure you go slow and dont have a big heavy boat because some places are really shallow.

Mark if you caught all those fish during the day I wouldnt worry about fishing at night I would stay in the bed.
I agree with James, thats a real good 5 days of fishing even if you didnt catch anything on the 5th day.What ever way you are fishing in the daytime, just fish like that at night and theres no telling what you may end up with.

But, since you can stay at Hill's, there is some good fishing at night in the diversion canal there. The 'rockpile' area is a favorite and the edges of the drops is always potentially good. Current flow equals better fishing, but those quiet nights can produce well even without flow, the darker, the better...
