Santee Lakes

Hello everyone and happy new year! In honor of the upcoming re-opener we are throwing it back to a picture from the opener of this season! Matt caught this beauty off a rooster tail. More trophies like this one will be stocked on the upcoming re-opener which is taking place on January 14th - 15th! We will be stocking Lakes 3,4, and 7 with 2,500 lbs of fish split between the 3! Our last stock was on December 28th. We stocked lakes 4, and 7. Best bet is to use powerbait or mini jig for the trout. Garlic and salmon peach scent has been working the best for powerbait. Rooster tails, kastmasters, atomic tubes, and rat tails have been the most popular for mini jigs. We hope to see you soon!
