I know it's a long shot...

4 posts in this topic

I know this is a long shot, but it doesn't hurt to try. Just wondering if anyone knows the name of a good catfish guide down on the Santee Cooper Lakes in South Carolina? I will be down there at the end of september for my honeymoon and I will be booking a guide for a day. I saw a show last year that Winkelman did down in S.C. fishing for cats and they did rather well. Problem is I emailed his HSOforum and haven't got a response about the guide he used. That was over a month ago. Since my fiance wanted to go to SC for the honeymoon, I figured we would do a day of cattin on some of the best catfish waters in the country. There are a lot of guides on the net, but I figured I would go with someone that I am referred to, if possible. And yes the future wife likes to go catfishing, so I didn't even have to beg! This better not change after the wedding eek

Go online and Google Santee cooper guides.

If you looking for a personal recommendation from some one up here. You are shooting for a long shot.

Not many blue hunters... and as far as Flathead fisheries. WE have one of the best in the nation in our back yard... No reason to go any where else.

I was trying to learn everything I could on driftfishing techniques and I bought a DVD on Catfish Connection about drifting on Santee Cooper Reservoir. They hired a guide named Glenn Hood for the video and he put some nice blues in the boat. I was impressed with the guy from the video - I looked up the HSOforum from the video. This is the contact information:

Glenn Hood, Santee Cooper Guide Service

Thanks Steve, I probably came across him already just like many others. My goal for this thread was to try and get specific names rather than searching the huge number of guides for these lakes. I appreciate the help.

    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
    • So proud of my 93 year old dad.  It's getting tougher and tougher just getting him out there, but he still knows what to do once there.    
    • I still gotta tag Moose! I'm going for a Tom only!!   (Personal thing) is ,,, I want to do it with my bow
    • Shaggy parasols are coming up in the shade garden again. Yum.  
    • VTX129 has a great point on nothing smaller than 9". I have a HB 998Ci HD unit. The bottom features that I can pick up are incredible- however I sometimes have a problem picking fish up on it. I have tried to keep my SI width narrower to help ID fish. Overall fantastic tool. The hard to soft transitions are easy to see as are rocks and so forth. On the HB units the larger screened ones come with the High Def transducer.  The smaller units come with a compact transducer. You can find some great prices on models that are being phased out - but they also will quit repairing those units sooner as well. Trade off's. Check out Universal Mania and some others online for pricing. Bass Boat central has a lot of info under Humminbird and Lawrance topics.   Good luck   Steve
    • CM I agree...and Chicago seems to find those diamonds in the rough...not sure how their AHL team is or if they have more of these "sleepers" coming up from somewhere but I bet they are right back in the finals within a 2-3 years with or without Q.   Another article that came in last night on Fletch/Wild http://nhl.nbcsports.com/2017/04/25/wild-exit-early-fletcher-stays-positive-a-familiar-refrain-in-minnesota/  You might have to Cut/Paste
    • Same have to give them a try once they come out.
    • Can't wait to test that Sprinker. 
    • lots coming thru for a couple days now.  had fun whistling with a couple yesturday. 
    • I wasn't able to catch it live and when I tried finding it after the fact it wouldn't play on my laptop for some reason. I do admire Bowman for being visibly ticked about their early exit, but I think that may get pushed a little too far. You tick off Q and he might just walk out the door. Bowman just fired one of his buddies and Q isn't too happy about it. We will see how that plays out. I think the Hawks are in a tougher position cap-wise than the Wild and have been for a few years. The difference is they had been getting no-name guys to emerge and contribute. They could be on a very slippery slope in Chi-town. We will see how that plays out.
