I moved from Frederick Maryland to South Carolina over 8 years ago and I am originally from Boston. I am fishing a private 210 acre lake (32 feet max) generally 2-15 feet water. The lake is a no wake lake and jet-skis and tubing are not allowed. It was restocked in 2016 with Sunfish, Shellcracker and sunfish with the guidance of a State Biologist. Beavers, eagles, ospreys,
I just downgraded from a fiberglass Skeeter to a Bass Tracker 4 stroke cause a 150 Evinrude is just too much for what I need. Lake Marion, Lake Moultrie, Lake Murray and other big lakes are just so busy and too many people driving boats and drinking. I'm a careful boater and don't need the noise of jet-skis or arguments with other boaters. If you google Edisto Lake in South Carolina, that is where I live and fish, but it is a secured, gated lake, so no one from the public has access. The biggest I have personally seen come out of this lake is 13# 9 ounces and in an average week, no more than Maybe, one other fisherman.
If it is allowed, I will update everyone once in awhile when I start catching fish I have already tagged. It will be interesting to see how much weight gain and length each fish has as they grow. Thnx again for the warm welcome.
