This World Record-Breaking Lake Is Here In South Carolina And It’s An Unforgettable Adventure

On a hot summer day in July of 1964, W.H. Whaley of Pineville caught an astonishing 58-pound, over 47-inch long channel catfish, breaking a world record. It’s rare to even find one of these over 20 pounds. There are other unique things to do at Lake Moultrie as well, where that gigantic monster of a catfish was caught. If you want an unforgettable adventure in South Carolina, this is one of the best places to have one.

If you want to go out for a meal, check out Watermark Bar and Grill for the best fried catfish in the southeast. Whether you select one or more of these activities or do all of them, you are sure to have a wonderful time and finish with some amazing new memories.
