The Santee drift rig is a catfish fishing rig that is gaining popularity in the catfishing world, when targeting blues or channel catfish in lakes and some rivers when the current is very low to non-existent. It's a great go to rig to catch catfish.
Place a bobber loosely in the line between the first and second rod guides in position "A" to detect catfish hits in rough surf. When a catfish takes the bait, it pulls the bobber to position "B." Use a lighted bobber at night.
The two most popular rigs to catch catfish are the rig and the slip rig also known as the carolina rig. Although both of these rigs can be fished in some of the same situations in certain conditions, each also has its own unique presantaion.
