Santee Bream Fishing

The bream fishing at Santee is as hot as ever, with anglers catching limits of bluegills and shellcrackers all over the upper and lower lakes. Bluegills are biting crickets in a range of depths, anywhere from 2-12 feet deep.

Anglers are having luck with shellcrackers fishing on or near the bottom, also in a variety of depths. Nightcrawlers and red wigglers are producing well.

Other than live bait, ultralight lures are also catching both species. Once fish are located with live bait, anglers are having fun tossing beetlespins, Mepps Aglia spinners, and tiny crankbaits like Rebel Wee Frogs.

bream fishing

I've had good results last two weeks with small crappie baits on bream and crappie Saluda River into Lake Murray. 2 - 4 feet.
