    I'm heading to the Congaree on 4/11/08 to camp and fish through the weekend. We'll probably buy bait in Rock Hill on our way down there. How are the fish biting and should I head up river or down river. We put in at 601 and usually go up river. Didn't harldy catch anything last year, but the year before we did good up there and I got a 47 lb blue along with several in the 20's. Can you catch white perch in there to use for bait. I don't want to go to my home lake up here the day before and get them the way gas is so I hope I can catch some down there. Any info. would be appreciated. Thanks!
