Catfish are moving into shallow water; with the full moon in 10 days I expect that good numbers of catfish to be caught on Easter weekend. Some fish can still be found in deeper water working their way in shallow. Monday the 30th of March is the first day of the Big Fish Big Bucks derby that will last for 28 days on Santee Cooper Lakes Marion and Moultrie. For more info go to www.bigfishbigbucks.com to find out where to buy your tickets and where the weigh stations are. There are 4 fish in the derby: stripers, catfish, crappie and large mouth bass. There will be a $200.00 per day for each fish, a $1000.00 for the week and a $10,000.00 for the biggest for the 28 days. Tickets are on sale NOW so have yours just in case you land a big fish. You may fish with a guide.
