    Im thinking of going to Santee this summer. Ive never been catfishing other than the dan river in danville Virginia. I was just wondering what kind of bait and tackle i will need to take. I know everybody says that u catch a lot of blues but i was wondering if flatheads are easy to catch also. Please post ur information and pictures if you have caught some from santee. Thanx!!

    Only flathead I've ever caught was at Santee on White Perch. The perch are easy to catch and as long as you don't go over the 40 fish creel limit you will be ok.

    BTW that flathead weighed 35 lbs.
