    Got to the lake at ~6:30am and got my limit by 8:45am on lake 2. Carolina rig with powerworms. The fish would not touch a minijig. Fished the afternoon for bass and didn't get a bite.

    What was your presentation?
    I’m planning taking my girls this week for our first session and am considering going to 3lb flouro. I typically like 5lb for peace of mind ...

    The two times I went to Santee I was fishing 4lb mono, mostly 2 inch swim baits. I only fished mini jigs for a bit, I much much prefer fishing the 1/16 oz swim baits. I hate casting the tiny jigs. My little brother did catch one on a Carolina rigged pink/white mouse tail though.

    I gave my grandpa some of those once, he spent the entire camping trip with glitter on his face. Highly recommended product.
