Moncks Corner, SC 29461

The store here is stocked by T1A of UB. It has all your fishing needs and is conveniently located! It's not really a marina...but if you are fishing the lake and find you need more of a bait or forgot one you can pull your boat up to the dock and go into the store.

It also provides our military with a place to relax with their families!  ~flag

Hey Rike,

Burt is going out of business. I heard it straight from the horse's mouth.

He is currently selling merchandise and letting you pull your discount out of a hat or something from 10 to 75 percent.

I stay at Canal Lakes for a week every summer. The owners are great people and the restaurant has awesome food! I especially love their catfish stew! You really cant ask for a better located place to stay on the lakes. It puts you right in the middle of the action forboth lakes. Their cabins are nice too. They are a bit on the small side but definitely cozy and with AC that will freeze you! lol Get cabin #3. Its right on the water and it comes with a dinette for a price that cant be beat  ;)

Gotta say Keowee cause I live on it.  Jocassee is great for Smallmouth.  Love to throw a frog on Murray.  Hartwell is great for hawgs.

Probably Lake Murray since I'm close by. But Wateree is close and Santee but an hour a way.
I spent much of my youth fishing around the diversion canal in Cross..my uncle had a place
there. Recently saw my cousin at my aunt's funeral and he says come on down so hopefully
next weekend I'll get back to Moultrie.

One of my bosses just went to the SC guides meeting and wrote up a summary (http://www.myfish.com/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=131&forum=2&post_id=195#forumpost195).

Also, all you locals..feel free to sign up at MyFish.com (http://MyFish.com). We are a Columbia shop .. MyFish is like
MySpace for anglers. Personal pages, tides, weather, logbooks,etc.

After my first year of getting back into the sport (I was overseas for 7 years) I have to say Wateree. I've had more good days on that lake than any other, but I've also fished there more than any other lake. I like the Savannah chain lakes too though, especially since the water level is going back up!

I have to say Lake Russell! Nothing is more beautiful than the tug of a 10#er while staring at a bald eagle flying. (Or as frustrating when you catch a 2lber only to be outdone by an osprey grabbing a 3lber in front of you.) Beautiful lake with no houses, minimal traffic, and night tournaments on Wed. Fri. and Sat. that are a blast with a bunch of good guys and gals who definitely aren't there for the money. Many of places to shop, but my preference is 72 Marine just off the lake. Huge selection of baits and munchies!

All the lakes in SC are good!  -  it really depends on what you want to do or the potential you are after.

For me its Santee-Cooper.  Theres not a better place in SC with the potential to give up big bags of fish.  I fish all over the South,, but nothing has proven to be any better. NO other lake in SC gives up 6 lb+ fish on a daily basis for more people than Santee.---  My largest last year = 9.25 lbs in JUNE. 

For being right centrally located to the action,, Bells Marina, The Canal Resort and Blacks Camp are all good choices!

 I love all three lakes in my area (upstate). Keowee, Jocassee and Hartwell.
 Keowee is my favorite though, great for Largemouth.
 Jocassee is really good for Smallmouth and Trout.
 Hartwell is awesome for Striper and Hybrid.
 All within 30/45 minute driving distance of each other!  ~c~  ~c~  ~c~

I live in Clemson and love the fact that I can hit any of the three upper lakes in no time at all!

Well my reply doesn't really count but I was lucky enough to get to go to Augusta for the Masters last week & we stayed on Trenton Lake. I believe it is a small private lake. We had the cold front go through but I did manage to catch a couple really nice 4 & 4.5lb largemouth from shore. The bite was VERY subtle.  One was on a weightless senko, texas rigged & the other on a Havoc Devils Spear, weightless. Both did a nice tail dance before I landed them too.

I grew up on Murray. Fished it my whole life and just recently got a boat so its a whole new animal now that i do have one. So of course i like Murray the most. But im looking forward to putting that boat into Santee and other lakes thats not too far.

Thanks..I now live in Spartanburg County...I'll throw some Shad Raps and Flukes when I go..Was planning on some early morning fishing Monday..Bet that lake has a lot of people on it Monday though..I'll go way early and be on the water as the sun rises..I have better luck then anyway.

Oh and BTW,.. I'm planning a trip to Blacks Camp on Santee in September..I got a buddy that lives down there

How come nobody in this thread has even once mentioned Lake Greenwood. That lake has produced fish for me every single time i go,it has never been a let down, and it's a hell of a crappie lake too.
