  • Fishing
  • Business
Lake Moultrie offers a varied fishing environment. There are shallow swamps, black water ponds, thousands of tree stumps and live cypress trees, as well as large open areas of water. This lake does not form ice in winter months.[3] A world record Channel Catfish weighing 58 lb (26 kg). was caught from this lake. The lake also holds the state record for Black Crappie (5 lbs).[4] For fisherman that prefer the bank, the catfish tend to move up to shallow water near dusk and bite well at night. Large catfish are known to bite well on blue gill(live) and perch(live) off the bottom of shallow sand/mud flats close to shore. The catfish move in the shallow water to feed on small clams and bait fish found in the mud and cracks on the lakes floor. It is not uncommon for fisherman at Lake Moultrie to catch catfish over 20 lb (9.1 kg). Trotlines are common at Lake Moultrie as well as trolling and even arching with a bow and arrow by spotlighting catfish in the shallows at night.
