Default Santee Cooper System / Lake Marion / Lake Moultrie

The striper fishing on the upper end of Lake Marion is good in the river on the flats as well as in the lower end of the lake and on Lake Moultrie. Herring has been the bait of choice for most anglers, with shad also producing some action as well.

Default LAKE MARION / LAKE MOULTRIE

The striper action has improved and reports are coming in from throughout the lake with fish schooling and being caught drifting and trolling. The fish have been schooling early and late in the day, but some of the best fishing seems to have been by drifting bucktails or live bait. Shad are the preferred live bait, but shiners will work very well if you can?t get shad. Find the areas where the baitfish congregate and drift your lure or bait at the depth the shad are schooled. Generally the stripers will readily move up a couple of feet to take your offering so most angers will lower the bait no deeper than to the top of the baitfish depth.
