Santee-Cooper The Home of Monster Cats

If you are a big catfishing fan then a trip to Santee is a must.

Santee has millions of cats, thousands of giant monster cats, I'm talkin' line strippin, pole snapping monsters!
Its also a great place just to take the family or kids and give mom a weekend off. Well that said my fishin' buddy Stacy and myself took his 2 boys this past weekend, and here are some of the pics.
We did a 24 hour marathon trip so if we look kinda shot out in some pics you can understand why. Hope you enjoy them, Gary Gone Fishin Club Pres. check it out, its Free!

Have you gone to

Big Cats on the Prowl

As the night goes on the big cats are out and about.

Heres a flathead we found searching for a snack in the night.

Not too long after this one was caught one of the light rods (#80 powerpro with a #50 leader doubled over in the rod holder, the tip was touching the water.

Thats when the adrenaline jumps, Stacy mamaged to wrestle the rod out of the holder and started fighting the beast, but the #50 leader was no match for this monster cat and after a brief fight too off snapping the line!

As fast as it started it was all over, I'd like to say this rarely happens butthe truth is if you wanna tangle with the Monster Cats of Santee you better leave your Zebco 33 at home or bring lots of line.
