CLEvE DowELL/Clarendon Citizen B y C Athy g iLBERt In the final phase of construction at the Clarendon Community Complex, commonly known as Weldon, the Clarendon Community Center is slated to open in September of this year. The facility was funded with a grant from the Federal Emergency Management Administration, as it will serve as an emergency shelter for those with special needs. "This can be used not only for local special needs consumers, but also for those with special needs who may be evacuated to our county," explained Emergency Service Director Anthony Mack. The entire complex can be powered by generators and has dressing rooms with showers in the Com- munity Center, as well as cooking and dining facilities in the Breedin Garden Room, adjacent to the Center, Mack said. "We have also designated space to be used as an alternate Emergency Operations Center, should our office not be functional," Mack explained. But in non-emergency times, the Center will be used as part of the County Recreation Department's facilities. "We are really excited, as this is the first time we will have space to offer non-athletic recreational activities," said County Recreation Director LeBon Joye.

By ChuCk wAtERs When Breanna Bradham was told at the beginning of the school year that she would be required to undertake a large-scale project, she had no idea her hard work would take her to both state and national competitions. Bradham is a rising eighth grader at Laurence Manning Academy and she recently won second place in the State History Day competition with her project on the famous Supreme Court case of Brown vs. Board of Education. The honor now sends her to College Park, Md. where she will compete nationally from June 12 through 16. LMA student earns history trip "I was ecstatic," she said. "It was my goal to go to nationals. I'm really excited to get this opportunity." She was originally going to focus just on the case of Briggs vs. Elliott; however she changed gears and put her attention on the larger Brown vs. Board of Education, case which included Briggs vs. Elliott Both cases dealt with desegregation of public schools. "Although Briggs vs. Elliot was very important, I felt Brown vs. Board of Education had a bigger impact," she said.

ChuCk wAtERs/Clarendon Citizen Smith returns for 18th Marion mural By ChuCk wAtERs The many murals depicting our rich history have made Clarendon a destination for buffs of all ages. Viewing murals of historical moments is a great way to capture how and why certain events happened. Renowned mural artist Terry Smith from Land O'Lakes, Florida is making a return trip to the county to paint his 18th Clarendon mural. His latest installment is at the corner of Mill Street and Rigby Street on the west wall of Citi Trends.

The Summerton Rotary Club has awarded two $1,000 scholarships to Amber Bowman and Heena Patel. Amber is the daughter of James Bowman and Debra Hart of Summerton. A 2011 graduate of Scott's Branch High School, Amber plans to attend Francis Marion University where she intends to study education with the goal of becoming a high school teacher. Amber excelled in athletics as well as academics, and graduated 13 out of 64 students at SBHS. The Summerton Rotarians also presented Heena Patel with a $1,000 scholarship. Heena is the daughter of Girish and Induben Patel of Manning and is a 2011 graduate of Clarendon Hall. She plans to enroll in the University of South Carolina to study biology. She hopes to follow her undergraduate studies in optometry school. Heena was a leader in her high school class, serving as treasurer, vice-president and ultimately president of her class. She graduated second out of 10 students. The Manning Rotary Club awards four scholarships: two $1,000 scholarships to a Manning High and Laurence Manning graduate and two $500 scholarships to student attending the F.E. DuBose Career Center. From Manning High School, the Manning Rotary Club selected Caroline LeaMond. Caroline is the daughter of Lois LeaMond and the late John LeaMond of Manning. She intends to attend the University of South Carolina and study elementary education. She was a member of the varsity cheerleading squad and a member of the Beta Club. She graduated 15th out of 180 students. Laurence Manning Academy graduate Kelsey Steele also received a $1,000 scholarship. Kelsey is the daughter of Samuel and Charlene Steele of Alcolu. She intends to attend Clemson University and pursue a degree in psychology with the goal of becoming a counselor. Kelsey served as her senior class president, was a board member for the Anchor Club and belonged to the Beta Club. She graduated sixth of 78 students. Two F.E. DuBose students also received Manning Rotary scholarships. George Hilton, a 2011 graduate of Manning High School, is the son of George Hilton Sr. and Sophia Culbreath and makes his home with Mahalia Ann Taylor of Manning. George plans to attend South Carolina State University and study business/ accounting. At Manning High School, George served as drum major for the Marching Monarchs, was a member of the Beta Club and served on the prom committee. He graduated 27th of 180 students at Manning High.

Leah has participated in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes at Clarendon Hall and in many mission areas with her church. She serves on the Manning United Methodist Church Administrative Council as the Youth Kelsey Steele Representative. She graduated fifth of 10 students at Clarendon Hall. Each of these individuals is sure to continue to make their communities proud of their accomplishments and embody the service principles that Rotary Clubs across the world stand for. Center ting and crocheting, Zumba and line dancing, as well as things like CPR/ First Aid and teen etiquette classes," he added. The Center includes a regulations size basketball court, public restrooms and a canteen space. Joye said the project is slated to be complete in August and opened in September. "Because of funding there are a few things still to be completed, but right now, everything else is on track," he added. Joye explained that the county has sponsored basketball leagues before but always had to rent space in the area schools. "In the fall, I am planning to start an adult cornhole league and in the winter, have a youth basketball league," he said. "Spring will bring both adult men's and women's basketball and in the summer we hope to feature teenage and adult volleyball leagues. Joye said with funding he envisions having ping pong tables and other activities for the gym. "I hope we will be able to have the gym open one or two nights a week and some on the weekend for open play, and of course, we will have space for our classes, if we find instruc- frompage1 tors," he added. Anyone interested in teaching classes at the new Community Center in the fall should contact LeBon Joye at 473-3543. Classes may be offered for one month or longer, generally once a week. History were celebrating the victory over Brown. It was the head of the five cases (dealing with desegregation)." Bradham said the case was so important that today's society is still seeing the effects of the decision. Going to a school where there is no segregation has roots from this case, she said. The case also overturned the older case of Plessey vs. Ferguson of 1898. The Brown verdict legally desegregated all public facilities. "It was something I could relate to," she said. "I can't imagine what it would be like had it not happened. It was a pretty cut and dried verdict." Bradham was informed of the project early in the academic year and has spent the last several months doing research and physically building her project display. On April 30, she got to display her hard work, explain to judges her project and show how the case affected civil rights. Her placement in the state competition and subsequent trip to the national level is a first for the Sumter-Manning area. LMA's U.S. and S.C. History teacher Barbara Shumpert said she was very proud of Bradham's success. She said she's known for a good while Bradham was going to be a contender. "From fifth grade, I said `If we're going to have a national competitor, she was going to be it,'" she said. Before leaving for the national competition, all competitors are allowed to make changes and improve their projects. Bradham plans to add a diplomacy factor into her project because she felt seeing both parties work together following the verdict was a key factor in its success. She plans to add several items and to talk to more people who can help her sharpen the details. "I'm contacting everybody I can," she said. "I plan to go to the Archives in the next few weeks. I'm doing everything I can to prepare. If I don't win, that's fine. But I want to know that I gave it my best frompage1 effort." Bradham said one of the things she most anticipates is seeing all of the other projects and meeting fellow history buffs at the nationals. The national competition will give her a great idea of how to improve for next year's competition she said. "I think it's going to be fun." Mural ing down and peering into a puddle of water and seeing a reflection not of himself, but a swamp fox, for which he is famously nicknamed. Marion's men appear to be looking into the future because that's what they are fighting for, according to Smith. George and Carole Summers and The Swamp Fox Murals Trail hired Smith. They told him they wanted an image that captured Marion's intelligence and how he saw himself and that is why they wanted the reflection of a fox. "We worked around that," Smith said. "We had different ideas on what to do but we decided on this one." Smith uses a technique known as trompe-l'oeil, a French word that means, "fool the eye." Trompe-l'oeil involves extremely realistic imagery that creates optical illusions so that the depicted objects appear in three dimensions. "You're looking through this wall into something that's not supposed to be behind the wall," said Smith. "The challenge is always to come up with something new." Some murals are based from an idea and the Trail knows what they want it to look like and Smith bases his mural from that idea. Others are based simply from a theme. Smith is given a certain theme and creates a mural that features specific characteristics. He decides on colors, feeling, mood and how he wants people to remember it. "You've got to make it entertaining," Smith said. "It grabs them; they start looking at it and they see other things. It's got to have that `wow' factor especially in a painting like this." Smith begins with a simple, rough draft, black and white drawing of the wall. After it is approved, he draws a scale model followed by a scale painting. Once changes are made and it is approved, he goes to the location and sketches the entire image before painting. Smith lays out a grid on the wall around things like people and horses. That helps him define correct locations, draw angles and create the overall effect. "You can say `I think I'll put Marion right here' but you may be five feet off where you should be," he said. "You have to have frompage1 points of reference to draw from. It has to be accurate." The final 10 percent of the painting is Smith's favorite part of the entire project, he said. To go from an idea to an almost complete product gives him the greatest satisfaction. He said it was like being a horse jockey in the pack and seeing the finish line and feeling like you were going to take first place. "As you go through it, it starts coming together right at the end and you get really excited at the finish," he said. "That's the thrill of it." Calendar frompage1 to attend this program.

Page Four June 8, 2011 This is the best idea I've heard in a long time As much as I live in my email, Facebook and iPhone worlds, I rarely forward anything sent to me. I have a personal peeve against those who forward emails with the last two dozen groups of addresses exposed. The "bcc" function is fabulous. It stands for Blind Carbon Copy and goes back to the days when you didn't want one of your original recipients to know you were copying someone else. A little sneaky? Yes. But in the email world, it allows you to mass disseminate your thoughts, ideas, prayers and cockamamie ideas without letting the rest of your gang know who got included. A week or so ago, my friends George and Carole Summers sent me an email that nearly set my hair on fire ... in a very good way. I hope that it has circulated around to you, proving the power of the Internet and social networking. If it has not, I will condense it for you here. They are ideas worth the space here, in my never humble opinion. I think we can all concur that there are some major fallacies in the way our government is operating. We have gotten so far from the "intention" of the Founding Fathers and the Constitution that they labored to construct that it is The U.S. Congress is no place for "on the job training" and if you can't make your mark in 12 years, you didn't need to be there in the first place, right? No Tenure/No Pension: a Congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office, whether it is two years or 22 years. Since when did any part of any term of office merit a lifetime pension with healthcare? Does that work anywhere in the private sector? Congress members, past, present and future, participate in Social Security JUST LIKE THE REST OF US. The act also requires that all funds in the now separate Congressional retirement fund be transferred to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people. Why shouldn't they? Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do. That is so simple and fair, don't you think? Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or three percent. This has always bothered me. It bothers me when any elected official votes themselves a pay raise. No one else has this ability ... thank goodness. It's just not how the real world works. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people. Then let's hear the rhetoric about universal health care. Is that "good for the goose is good for the gander" thing not taught any more? How about the "do unto others ...?" Congress must have been absent that day at school. Pity. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people. Hello? Isn't this a nobrainer? And finally, the piece de resistance ... All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void effective by the end of 2011. Alrighty then ... don't take my vote and then use it to lobby the old buddies you left back in Washington. Congress is no place for a golden parachute and special interests and influences have just about broken our collective backs. Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term(s), then go home and go back to work. The email ends by asking the recipient to send it to 20 people and I believe I sent it to at least 40. I read it about a dozen times and kept asking, what is wrong with this plan? The High Commander answered it most succinctly ... "It doesn't benefit the 535. Those would be our 435 congressmen in the House and our 100 senators. Of course, without a full blown voter's revolt, getting these ideas past the 535 is akin to asking the fox to install the locks on the hen house. If you would like to see this email in its entirety, write to me at email@example.com. I'd be happy to forward it to you. As a citizenry, we have got to take our government back and make it about the people, not the 40 gozillion special interests that are holding it hostage. I think we could do it ... and it would be so worth it, don't you think? Maybe it is time. Citizen viewpoint Cathy Gilbert News@ClarendonCitizen.com Contributing Editor shameful. The Beltway gridlock these days has become just a big joke ... and it is all on us. This is how the Summers' email proposes to correct the ills of Washington ... I think these ideas are brilliant! I don't think the Summers' originated this email, but my hat is off to whoever did. The plan is called the Congressional Reform Act of 2011 and has eight simple tenets. To wit: Term limits (and this is my favorite as I think everything else would straighten up with this plan enforced). There are three options for term limits: 12 years only with one of these options, a) two six-year Senate terms; b) six two-year House terms; or c) a combination of one term in the Senate (six years) and three two-year House terms.

DuBose Career Center graduates 80 students By ChuCk Waters Graduation ceremonies symbolize accomplishments made in the classroom as well as the opening of the door to the rest of your life. More than 300 people witnessed 80 students at F.E. DuBose Career Center be recognized at the commencement ceremonies on May 26. The Health Sciences Technology department was the biggest department as it had 18 graduates. All graduates had CPR/ First Aid Certification and instructor Lisa Coker said nine graduates were going to take the CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) exam. "These students participated in work experience at Clarendon Memorial Hospital and Lake Marion Nursing Facility," she said. Cosmetology had 13 graduates and instructor Tammie Graham said she was very proud of her students' accomplishments and eager to send them into the working world. Four graduates are already South Carolina licensed cosmetologists; they can go straight into the work force. Before they receive a license, they must complete 1,500 hours of study and pass two state board exams. "It's a great opportunity; it's outstanding," said Graham. "When they leave, they leave with a license. These students now have the opportunity to go to work. They have a professional license so it's an awesome feeling." The guest speaker was Wilson DuBose, the son of F.E. Dubose, for whom the school is named. DuBose began by speaking about his father, Frank Elsivan, and how his passion for the young people of Clarendon County helped develop the career center. He said he was very proud and inspired by how his father had enough sense to give young Clarendon County students the chance to continue their education. "I wanted to give everybody a sense of the person behind the name," DuBose said. "It's easy to go there everyday and see the name and Citizen News 2011 F.E. DuBose graduates Amber Bowman, Darious Fleming, Tara Ragin, DeAngelo Hodge, Dwayne Salley and Justin Lindsey are all smiles following their graduation. not know the man behind it. "My dad had a great interest in young people. He wanted to do everything he could to give them every opportunity to make a good life. He felt the county was not doing enough to prepare its high school students who were on a non-college track for the work world. It was his dream to have this school where the students could learn marketable skills." DuBose told the students that life is not always fair, but accepting any defeat and learning from it is the path to follow. He encouraged them to pursue goals despite possible failure. "Do whatever it takes to grasp and appreciate all the possibilities life has to offer," he said. "If you don't appreciate them, you won't exert yourself in the way you need to do in order to live a fulfilling life. Don't be afraid to follow your dreams and take chances and risks. That's part of life. Be willing to learn from defeat because it happens to all of us. Don't let defeat stop you, but let it be a learning experience that will help you achieve more down the road. Give every effort your best. No matter what your job is in life, do the absolute best job you can and that will give you the most fulfillment." suBmitted Photo/Clarendon Citizen By ChuCk Waters Some people feel that volunteering and lending an extra hand is not only a great way to reach out to others, but is also a part of every day life. Clarendon Hall student Sonam Kuber is taking those concepts to another level. Kuber will be taking part in the HOBY (Hugh O'Brian Youth) Leadership Program at Erskine College, June 2426 in Due West. The HOBY Program was founded in 1958 in an effort to inspire worldwide youth to dedicate themselves to a life of leadership and ingenuity. The program is held annually throughout the United States and serves local and international high school stu- Clarendon Hall's Kuber attends Leadership Seminar "It's about working with people you don't know," said Kuber. "It's using leadership skills you already have and building on them." Kuber is a rising junior and she was chosen based on a written essay, extracurricular activities and leadership potential. The essay topic was "What do you think a good leader is?" "Our essays were read by several different teachers and mine was chosen," said Kuber. "I've always wanted to become a leader in the community as well. When I heard we could write essays to get chosen, I wanted to go because I figured I could use any other help I could get. Anything that helps me to become a better leader is going to help me with whatever I decide to do." Kuber wants to enter the medical field and she said attending this type of seminar would greatly benefit her with leadership and relationship skills. She said she is looking forward to gaining valuable experience and early guidance. "I'm looking forward to becoming a better leader," she said. "Learning how to take initiative is one of the big things. Sometimes I have a problem with not taking a step first and falling back in a crowd. I'm really excited to learn how to not do that. I'm looking forward to not being bossy about it, but learning how to take control of it. " There will be other students from across the state and Kuber said that is an aspect she is excited about. Meeting other top students and learning from each other she said will coincide significantly with the overall program. "Learning from their experience tells me what I could do," Kuber said. "Learning how to get out of my comfort zone, interacting with people I don't know and not shying away from that are things I will learn." Kuber said her future would be much brighter because of this seminar and lessons she will take away. Even if is just over a weekend, her future life and career will be that much more uplifted because of HOBY. "If I do become a surgeon or the head of a group of people, I'll know how to take control and make sure everybody is staying on track," she said. "I'll be better equipped to encourage them and tell them they can come speak to me if they need anything." Sonam Kuber dents. There are over 9,000 students that take part in the HOBY program annually. The seminar will be a very interactive program that will consist of a variety of guest speakers and will focus on taking more initiative and getting along with other people. LMA Anchor Club make us your home Page The Anchor Club at Laurence Manning Academy presented the Brainminders program at their chapel assembly on Wed., May 11. This is a program that teaches children how to protect their brains by buckling their seat belts in the car, being careful when they cross the street, playing on playgrounds that have grass, looking out for their friends while they play and looking both ways before you cross the street. They used puppets and hats to get the attention of the children. The Anchor Club is sponsored by the Clarendon Pilot Club and their advisor is Barbara Shumpert. suBmitted Photo/Clarendon Citizen Law Offices of William H.

It was Manning-Santee's home opener and they entered the game with a 1-1 record on the young season. They were looking to gain their second win of the year but sluggish pitching, errors and missed opportunities cost them in the end. Corey Brown got the start on the mound and almost immediately got Post 68 in a hole. He allowed eight walks, three strikeouts, 10 hits and eight runs. "He was frustrated early on," said Head Coach G.G. Cutter. "He wasn't getting the pitches he thought he should have gotten. It got to him and you can't let that happen." Camden rolled to a quick 3-0 lead in the top of the second because Brown walked the leadoff man in the first and second innings. They were threatening to stretch the lead as they had a man on first and second with one out but the Manning defense stepped up and got the final two outs. "We can't give them any runs," said Head Coach G.G. Cutter. "That's what we did. Walks and a few errors hurt us." However, Jamal Keels came in and put a stop to Post 68's hot bats. He finished the final three innings and allowed just one walk, three strikeouts, three hits and one run. "He did a good job," said Cutter. Camden Post 68 wasted no time getting men on base and runs on the board. Stephen Bonaparte led off the top of the first and headed to first base following a single. Ty Robinson followed with a walk and Post 68 had two men on with no outs. They each scored due to Manning miscues and took the 2-0 lead. Manning-Santee Post 68 came up in the bottom of the inning and got no offensive results as the first three batters were quickly retired. In the top of the second, Bonaparte again led off with a walk and later scored giving Camden the 3-0 advantage. Manning got a run back in the bottom of the second when Keels crossed the plate. He trotted to first base and later rounded second and third base and scored on an errant throw to cut the deficit to 3-1. Shuler Ward got to third base but was stranded when Douglas Ard struck out. Manning's pitching and defense improved in the fourth giving up just one run but suffered a three-run fifth allowing Camden to begin pulling away. Keel scored another run for Manning in the fourth that cut their deficit to 4-2. They were trailing 9-3 in the eighth inning but Mike Keels and Heath Smith combined to score two runs clos- Citizen Sports ing the gap to 9-5. Ward and Jamal Keels were in scoring position but were left stranded when Ard hit a pop fly for the final out to end the game. "If we can get consistency out of our pitching and give ourselves a chance to make a play, we'll be all right," Cutter said. Manning-Santee posted a 1-2 record following the game. On Friday, June 3, they rebounded with a 13-0 win over Hartsville. Matt Mays pitched a complete game with nine strikeouts, two walks and just three hits. Their next game will be Thursday when they host Dalzell at 7:30 p.m. Manning-Santee PoSt 68 � 2011 aM Legion BaSeBaLL ScHeduLe date ViSitor HoMe tiMe May 30..................Manning-Santee ..................

Moreover, the action is still best in fairly shallow water, but just a different type of water than what we enjoyed during the spring spawning season. The bass have backed off just a bit, but not much, in terms of depths of water. Most of the fish are holding in three-toeight feet of water, but are nosed into heavier cover. Just last week, I ran into a few largemouth bass in fairly thin water. This was especially the case early and late in the day. With shallow water bass in mind, a buddy and I took a trip for largemouth the other day and the results really got us both fired up for bass fishing. While catching largemouth off deeper structures is great fun and will become a better idea as the summer progresses, I do like to get in as much shallow water fishing as I can. We hit the lake while it was still early, but the air was already warm and muggy, with only a subtle hint of a breeze. It looked like a perfect morning to catch a few largemouths from the lower part of Lake Marion. We first fished a cove offering a variety of shallow water fishing opportunities including cypress trees, several logs, many stumps, and numerous shallow water weed beds around the shoreline. All are prime shallow water bass hideouts. Water depths ranged from a few inches to about eight feet deep. We started the morning fishing topwater lures, a Devil Horse specifically, along the edge of the grassbeds and immediately scored a couple of quick bites. One bass was caught that weighed in the two-pound class; another pushed four pounds. We left that area after a bit of inactivity, and we fished some large treetops that had toppled into the water. These trees provided cover from the shallow water down to the deepest part of the cove. My partner worked a spinner bait shallow around the branches and I dropped a pumpkin seed-colored plastic worm into the deeper part of the treetop. I felt the unmistakable tap-tap of a bass taking my worm just as my buddy set the hook on a chunky largemouth that engulfed his spinner bait. A quick snap of the wrist and I was solidly hooked up. It was an almost scary way to begin the day, but the timing and weather were so in sync that the fishing was good throughout the day. I was working a Zoom plastic worm, rigged Texasstyle and my buddy was using a 1/4-ounce, white, single-spin spinner bait. By the time we finished fishing that first small pocket, we had boated several largemouth, with one in the fivepound class and all the rest in excess of two pounds. I tell you all of this to get you fired up about shallow water bass fishing. While the prime shallow water fishing season may be just about gone, it is still not over. Lake Marion is chock full of quality bass; all you and I have to do is mix it up enough with them until we get the pattern right. You can't do it from the chair in front of the television or anyplace other than the lake. While most of the best Citizen Wildlife Work lures such as plastic worms and spinner baits around heavy cover including weeds, logs and cypress trees for good largemouth bass fishing results. fishing will be in shallow water, about anything from eight feet deep to the shoreline is likely to hold bass. The fish may not be schooled up real tight as you may find on midsummer drop-offs, but if you find one good-sized bass, the same general area should likely hold several more. The key is to find a decent pattern and stick with it for a while. Of all the lures you can enjoy, this is particularly good top water fishing season. Top water lures, such as the Bang-O-Lure, Devils Horse and the buzz bait will produce some exciting bass fishing action early and late in the day and it is an awesome way to start the day. For the next few weeks the fish are susceptible to this type of fishing. The plastic worm fishing will be good throughout the summer, but now is the time to enjoy your favorite top water lure for some frantic fishing action, especially early in the day. Then pull out the trusty ol' plastic worm for hitting heavy cover during midday. The point is, go now, even though the heat is bearing down in early June. Put on new line to handle the hawgs, sharpen the hooks and get chunkin'. The next few weeks will still provide very good shallow water action and I personally intend to take full advantage of it while it lasts. Terry Madewell/Clarendon Citizen Fishing is still good despite intense heat By Terry Madewell The transition from spring into summer didn't take long once it got started. The hot weather usually associated with the month of June arrived in a hurry and not only warmed air temperatures dramatically, it warmed water temperatures as well. The key to fishing for most species is water temperature and we've seen a dramatic upswing in those temperatures recently. Of course the air temperature will also impact the fishing pressure, especially the fishing during the midday time period. A lot of Lake Marion and Lake Moultrie fishing guides are now beginning to fish the half and half schedule. They are fishing late afternoon and about half of the night with their guide parties, especially those after catfish. That's certainly one of the most sensible ways to beat the heat and catch some fish. Overall, fishing success remains good with largemouth still being caught, but now holding tight to heavy cover. In addition, the crappies are biting food on the brush during the day. Bream fishing is good using live bait and spinners around weeds, brush and trees. A few fishing patterns begin to change a bit as we got into the latter part of May. While overall fishing remains very good for a number of fish species, some summertime trends are beginning to take shape. Bream fishing has been very good and a lot of big bream are still being taken from shallow water, especially around heavy cover. Also some shellcrackers were still in shallow water spawning on both lakes Marion and Moultrie and they can still be caught using worms around heavy cover weeds and brush. The bream action will continue to be good throughout June. Live crickets, as well as beetle spin spinners and fly rods and popping Santee Leasing Serving South Carolina Since 1972 bugs will enable anglers to make good catches. The largemouth bass fishing is still good in shallow water but most of the fish are now snugged up to heavy cover most of the day. A number of lures have been very productive with plastic worms, rigged either Texasor Carolina-style, as well as jigs and grubs, crank baits, spinner baits and top water lures producing good results. Look for the largemouth fishing to remain fairly consistent but with the fish in slightly deeper water and handling tight to cover. Crappie fishing is very good for those who know the location of brush piles in water 12-18 feet deep. The fish have moved out of the shallows and will be holding on these structures for the next few months. If you can locate some of these offshore hotspots, it's not unusual to catch several from a single spot. In addition, fishing at night under the lights has been quite good with several good catches made fishing along the ledges, preferably near the aforementioned brush piles. The catfish action remains quite good and as noted, late evening and up until about midnight are the times most guides are fishing for this species right now. This will be a pattern many will employ throughout the summer months. Cut bait has been the best bet for the blue catfish, plus some hefty channel catfish have been caught recently as well on the cut bait. The saltwater fishing news has been very good recently with sheepshead being caught in big numbers in the inshore areas. In addition, spadefish are being caught now on the close to shore wrecks and redfish are being taken inshore as well. Plus further offshore, dolphin are being caught in good numbers.
