Well myself and Brad(Catchaser) returned from a 3 day endurance run at Santee. We had ourselves a blast. We fished 2 days before we figured out what to do. They pulled water through the canal the first two days. Brad caught a 35 pound flathead in the canal(picture) and that was is for big fish. We caught several fish in the canal, no size to the others. We thought things would work in the canal with the current and all, wrong. We new we had to make a change so we went out in the upper lake( in the middle ) and tried to fish Sunday night. We set up and began to catch fish first thing, then the winds came. We left, not knowing we were on to something, we just did not want to battle the wind. We went back to the canal to get shelter, no fish,the winds layed so we went out a little ways in the upper lake and caught a few fish before morning broke. Monday morning we comitted ourselves to the upper lake for the lastnight, no matter how bad things got. We left out at from Harry's at 1p.m. on the last night and went back to the upper lake, out in the open and we were at the mercy of the lake. Set up on the first hole and instantly started catching fish, we sat that hole 8 hours, yes 8. After cooking fish and having a great boat fish fry and a sandwich, we made another move at 11:30 p.m. We sat up on another spot within sight of the last and again started catching fish. We sat that hole till daybreak. I think the total of the 2 hole Monday night and Tuesday morning was about 15 flatheads and 7-8 blues and 10 long nose gar. We were out of bait come morning, which was fine by both of us because we were totally spent. We was down at Harry's by 4 p.m. Saturday and we left Tuesday by 9 a.m. with a total of 51 hours on the water, yes 51 hours. We stayed in the room a grand total of 8 hours. So thats why we named this trip the Santee Endurance Run. We never gave in to defeat and was bound and determined to catch fish which we did. The landing at Harry's is bad to say the lease. I busted the winch rope and pulled the hook of the front of the boat in which you hook the winch hook to. Bad. I want to give my partner a hats of , he hung in there with the ol' man and we had a wonderful trip, just a blast. We caught over 200 pounds of fish Monday alone, so all in all we had a blast of a trip. I've been going to Santee for over 20 years and this is by far the be flathead trip I've had. We decided Tuesday morning our next trips to Santee will be flathead fishing trips. I believe they take less heat than the blues. By the way, every fish we landed was released back to the lake within minute ( except dinner Monday night. I'm going to post a few of the phots, but we took so many I'll just post up a few of the best ones.My thanks go out to all you men that gave us a heads up on the lake conditions. The water is low and the lakes are tricky, so be carefull out there.Thanks again Brad, can't wait till next trip. GET DA NET !!!!!!!!!!!! He's A Good'un!!!!!!!!!!
