    Had a huge night on the Saluda River Friday night starting the night off with a 34 pound flathead and ending it with a 47 pounder my personal best !!! (see avatar. And off course all I had was my cell phone camera otherwise I wouldn't have caught it, but they were both safely released to be caught another day !!:smile2:

    I had no idea there were flatheads in the Saluda, but then the only part of the river I know is the cold stuff down in Cola by the Riverbanks Zoo. Used to catch some stripers and a few channel cats there.

    Wherre about are you fishing? Up by Lake Greenwood?

    Congrats on some great fish!

    Way to go Brad! Yeah, I've often made the mistake of leaving my camera at home. That always seems to be the trips when I catch the biggest fish, lol. Keep hammerin' 'em!

    It was were the saluda river flows into lake greenwood at the top. If you go be careful the river is the reason my brand new boat has been in the shop for a month for a new lower unit.

    The closest ramp is called angels landing it is in the middle of knowhere on a gravel road, but harris landing is the next clsest it is alot nicer and has deep water the other is shallow. I think the name of the road is harris bridge road it is near Cornaca.
