Hot shellcracker bite is on at Santee

No special gear is needed to catch a mess of these fish

The shellcracker bite kicks off in May and gets really good by the full moon in June. But it lasts all summer and into the fall. The toughest part of catching them is just being on the water and locating the fish. Catching them doesn’t require any special gear or lures.

Check out the video from Low Country Wildlife TV and let Stacy Atkinson and Steve “The Legend” Drummond show you how to load your cooler with some fine shellcracker, LCW style.
