What anglers said about fishing in Santee-Cooper

Definitely book a charter, preferably Mark Lawson. Prepare for wind and rain. Canal lakes fish camp would be a good choice. Houses and cottages for rent, Mac Daddy’s restaurant is great for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Small store that has bait and tackle, snacks , beer and other drinks. One stop shopping. And the staff is great! Say hey to Jennifer and Megan at Mac Daddy’s.

Unfortunately, the fish cleaning station and the bathrooms were all closed by the time we docked at Mac Daddy's and we were really counting on being able to use both. So, note to self for next time, be sure to get back to the dock at Mac Daddy's before they close everything up!

Hampton Inn Santee is well located and is great for anglers. It is important to see the weather conditions in the region, the weather changes constantly

April temps at Santee are nice and not as hot and humid. Nice weather! Big fish if you can catch them hungry!

Santee is a big lake with lots of area to fish! Just tough finding them sometimes and making them bite. Big ones are here though!
