    How to catch your biggest catfish on Santee this month

    November is special on the Santee Cooper lakes for a variety of reasons. First and foremost, the fishing is fantastic for multiple species. Striper fishing improves from the excellent, already strong October bite, with more big, keeper-sized stripers on both live bait and schooling patterns. Catch-and-release days of 50 to 100 stripers were common last November. Big largemouth bass roam the shallows, and far fewer anglers are bass fishing, ensuring elbow room. Crappie action is slab-silly good in deep water.

    Blades of glory

    Ask guide Eddie Moody what the difference is between a long-liner and a tight-liner, he’ll quickly tell you that a tight-liner is more of a finesse or presentation fisherman, while a long-liner is putting his money on a reaction strike. As a long-liner, Moody ups the ante by rigging half of his offerings with bladed jigs to cause a forced feed.
