Catfish are absolutely tearing it up! Especially guys who are using stink bait. Docs and Sonny's seem to be working the best in 8 to 12 feet of water. Anchor your boat, fish 6 to 8 rods all around the boat, right on the bottom.
The Santee Cooper Striper season is underway as of Oct 1st and good catches have been coming in. Remember there is a 3 fish creel limit with a length limit of 26 inches.

The stripers also like to school at creek mouths and along the edges of the diversion canal.
