    Big Bird drove down from Monroe today to fish the Pee Dee with me and Chris. He shoulda brought some water with him as the river is about to dry up. Caught one DINK, not worthy of being called a lifter. If not for my knowledge of the river, we would have probably torn up the boat and motor. Left the river and hit lake Wallace. Drifted 2 1/2 hours and caught 4, three fine channels and one other small cat. I think rather than fish several days a week locally with mediocre results, I'm gonna start hitting the Santee and other big bodies of water every other week or so. At least that will give us a chance at landing the trophies we so desire.

    Hey Bill,
    To make things a little more cost effective you can come fish Murray/Monty with us almost any weekend you would like. This way you would not have to drag a boat with ya....:big_smile:

    Come on Bill! You don't dump your bride as soon as the honeymoon is over. You have just caught so many cats so regularly, you've become a bit spoiled. If it was easy, and you could catch em every time you go, there would be no challenge and nothing to be happy about when you do catch a nice one. Soon as the water levels come back up, I suggest you kiss and make up with the Pee Dee. She may not be perfect, but thank God the old gal is still there waiting for you.

    Yes, Randy, Winyah Bay is in my future as soon as the water cools enough for the crabs to stop being so aggravating.

    Once a riverman always a riverman. I use to feel the same way about Saluda, make 3 trip before i even got a bite, then wam!!30lb striper. I like running water. Don't striper fish anymore, unless i want them for bait:smile2: But i'm still drawn to the river (just not Saluda River)

    Those fish are still there, and concentrated more, maybe. Ya just have to have a helicopter to reach them. I just finished repairing the skeg and replacing the prop on our engine from my last trip up that way. :wink:

    It'll be alright Bill. You'll get back on 'em here soon. I was about fed up with catfishing period until I finally got back in the swing of things the past couple days. Just gotta take the good with the bad.
