Annual Big Daddy Fishing Event

At Santee State Park

Calling all kids 12 and under! Join us for our Annual Big Daddy Fishing Event. Mom's, Dad's, grandparents - grab your pole and the kids and get ready to spend some quality time on Lake Marion. Goody bags will be provided by event sponsors and prizes will be awarded to children for different categories - Catfish, Panfish, Bass, and most unusual catch. Only 3 fish may be entered per category. After a morning of fishing, participants can gather back at the picnic shelter to show off their catch, get their prizes and goodies, and eat lunch.
