    6/27/06 via cell phone: "fished until 10:30 when the wind died down and couldn't drift (Couldn't see too well, either, from sweat in eyes). Caught 14 fish, including a 38# Blue, and several channels, up to 14#. Drifting herring. Afternoon storm cut off activities. May go out later tonight.
    Anyone gets a chance, I'm in a camper at Lion's Beach, next door to Atkins Landing; drop by and come fish if you can. Will be here until at least sometime next week."

    If you talk to the ol' boy tell him I said hello!

    If you get the chance to fish with him I would do it. He made the top ten at last years Cabelas King Kat Classic.

    Nice to hear from him, been a while since I've seen him on the board. Was lucky enough to fish with him on his toon at the National.

    I didn't hear from him today. I went out on Moultrie about 4:30, after work, no fresh bait, managed 1 channel ~5#'s and several small hits. Wind seemed to calm down a little, so I headed out into the main lake. 'Bout got blowed away! Decided to take what I had and head for home. :embarassed:

    I hear ya Blackwater. For the past week, there's been alot of days where the water was completely slick at 5:00 and the wind will pick up before dark hard enough to blow the hair off your head. The bite is still a tad slow (at least for me it is), but I'll go again tomorrow for my daily wind whippin'!

    Thanks for the report, Ron. I tried to get you on the vhf and cell on Thursday pm, but couldn't raise you either way. Glad you've been catching them, though.

    Thanks Ron, I'm going back this weekend and was thinking of night fishing because of the heat. I don't think half of us can spell right but as long as you get the point or message across it's fine.. We value your expertice and that what really matters. Look forward to seeing you up there.

    Thanks for that report, Ron. Sounds like they are biting good, now. I've seen those fish have spawning marks on them like that before, late like this. The don't all go at once, some are always bringing up the rear, ya know. :roll_eyes:
    I just go in from a trip to Murphy, kinda tired of riding. Catchya later....

    Roundhill/Tommy,
    I am gonna be down there next Monday thru Friday 7/31-8/3. I haven't been down there since Memorial Day, so I have no clue where to start. What do you think my best bet would be, drifting or anchoring, Marion or Moultrie, bream or herring? Also I'll probably be fishing the afternoons mostly, so would I need to concentrate on the humps or deep water? Thanks for all the info!!

    Daniel, Roundhill can probably help you more than I can right now; haven't been lately. Read his report above, and also this one by Catfishrus: http://www.catfish1.com/forums/showthread.php?p=709677#post709677.
    Hope this will help you. It seems the fish are pretty scattered, but I would try the dropoffs later in the day, where the water goes from 15 or 20' and falls off. Try different depth ranges until you locate them, and watch the sonar for schools of bait fish. That's a plus. Try fishing with fresh herring or perch. I always try to have several different offerings for them, and don't hesitate to put a nightcrawler on a 5/0 circle hook if you want a few eaters.:big_smile:

    Thanks Tommy!!
    Like I said it will be next Monday before I go down, hopefully they won't change patterns too much between now and then. August of 2005 was my first Santee trip, I booked a trip with Doug Allen out of Bonneau. We drifted around Pinopolis and caught some very nice fish, biggest being 40+. I figured that drifting was the best method to at least locate some fish, hopefully there will be enough wind to drift. If not then I'll have to try something a little different. Thanks for the info!!
