A bill moving through the state legislature would tighten restrictions on blue catfish on the Santee-Cooper lakes, but despite widespread support, several Upstate pay-pond owners feel it might have a negative economic impact on those relying on Santee Coo Bill to protect Santee Cooper blue cats draws ire of Upstate politician

A bill introduced in January that would establish a daily creel limit and change the size limit on blue catfish at the Santee Cooper lakes has made it through the S.C. House and has moved to the S.C. Senate in early March, setting up a possible confrontation between commercial and recreational fishermen on Lake Marion and Lake Moultrie and pay-pond owners in the Upstate who rely on the lakes to acquire fish for their ponds.

Bass fry and the hatchlings of other species will draw plenty of attention from predators, including bass, around vegetative cover, making those spots great for fishermen. Follow the fry

When the shallow areas of the Santee Cooper lakes green up in the spring, they provide ideal places for small fish to hide and spawners to being their annual ritual. Even after the eggs hatch, these places quickly turn into a dinner table with thousands of food choices available for predators, and the largemouth bass is right at home and ready to eat.

Bass are liable to be spawning across the entire Santee Cooper system throughout April. Counteract water levels and still catch fish

Anglers fishing reservoirs controlled by power companies will experience drastic changes in water level throughout the year. In fact, all of South Carolina’s large lakes were created to generate power and are all subject to fluctuation in water depth. While deeper areas do not experience any noticeable differences when the water level drops two feet overnight, the shallows are hit hard as acres of habitat are drained, negatively impacts the reproduction of some of the most-important species.
