This mixture of vintage and modern-day photos shows the excitement that stiper fishing generates. Rich King, in partnership wit Brian Tankersley and Jeff Sumerel of Dark Corner Films, produced a film documenting the building of the Santee-Cooper lakes and the by-product of the striper fishery that was created. It became and industry for the area, generating tourism dollars and is one of the most interesting stories of fishing lore.
The film is called "Landlocked" and was premiered at the Southeast Wildlife Expo. It will be shown at the Upstate History Museum and the TD Center at Greenville in March.
King will also have a booth at the upcoming South Carolina Palmetto Sportsmen's Classic in Columbia at the end of March.
King is offering DVD's of Landlocked for $19.95 and 5% of sales goes to the SCDNR striper program. Contact King at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
