  • Catfishing with the Catfishin' Fool

    The Catfishing is hot on Lake Santee. Capt. Wayne Vining ( has been putting his clients on some good fish the past few weeks. Several 40-pound class fish have been reeled in lately, and many more in the 15 to 20-pound size have been caught recently as well.

    If the heat is too much for you, Capt. Wayne can accomodate you by taking you night-fishing when the air temperature is a little cooler and sometimes the catfish bite better. It's nice to kick back on a pontoon and stretch your legs while waiting on ole whiskers to bite. Capt. Wayne has a comfortable 25-ft. Tritoon that will allow you and several others to do just that.

    Using a combination of drift-fishing and anchoring, Capt. Wayne has had a lot of success this summer and reports the bite is going strong. Check out his website for more
