    Me and a couple buddies decided to mix things up a bit, so we made the drive down to santee-cooper last weekend to fish one of the canals coming off of lake marion....despite a rough start (the serpentine belt broke on my car, but luckily we made it to a tackle shop where someone was nice enough to drive us to the part's store and lend us some tools!)... we still managed to have a good time! We caught a few blues in the 8-10 pound range and one nice flathead that weighed in at 29 pounds. Here's a picture of the flathead. Hope everyone has a good Christmas

    and for the record the fish was released.....we just kept her on a stringer a few hours until it got light to get some better pictures. She didnt hesitate at all when we released her. Here is the video....
