I know it's a long shot...

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
