Anyone who ever watched Hillbilly Handfishin’ on Animal Planet (hello? anyone?) might think that the only way to catch a catfish is to feed it your arm. Not so. But you are going to need some strong tackle and a lot of stamina if you head to these hallowed fishing grounds an hour inland from South Carolina’s Atlantic coast. Adjacent Lakes Marion and Moultrie routinely pump out 60- and 70-pound blues and flatheads, and multiple 100-pounders have been hauled out of these waters since the year 2000.
