  • Canal Lakes Catfishing

    Capt. Darryl Smith reports that this was his best summer of catfishing ever. He expects even better fishing in the coming weeks as the water cools and the cats continue to feed.

    Capt. Darryl fishes out of Canal Lakes Fish Camp, home of the world record shellcracker and state record flathead catfish.

    You won't find many captain's that will offer you a guarantee of 100-lbs of catfish on your trip, but that's exactly what Capt. Darryl's guarantee consists of.

    If you're thinking you've heard of Capt. Darryl before, you may have seen him on the popular outdoors show 'O'Neill Outside.' Capt. Darryl also guided for Kathryn Maroun when she caught her 96-pound catfish while filming her international show 'What a Catch.'

    To book your trip with Capt. Darryl and fish from the luxury of his 30-foot pontoon, call 803-372-1398. And to see what a day of fishing with Capt. Darryl is like, check out
