    Fished santee on Thursday from 8am to 7pm. Started out with a wake bait but they wouldn't touch it. Then I switched over to an ika and lost one because it got stuck in a patch of tulies. Watched a ~6lber eat the ika and when I set the hook the bait went flying (still disappointed that I didn't hook it). caught a 3lber and a smaller one. Switched to a frog in the afternoon and had 2 fish peck it from under the mats but they wouldn't swallow the bait. Finally in the afternoon I saw some small shad with small bass chasing them so I tied on a lucky craft sammy and first cast I got a blowup and missed it. Walked up to lake 4 and caught 2, missed 2 and lost 1 right at the bank. It was a fun day overall.

    Joking aside, that report almost makes me want to pay the 9 bucks to fish there? How are the crowds on weekdays?

    Not too bad. Definitely not like the weekends there. The lakes will be dead during the weekdays later in August once kids start school again.
