Kind depends on which area of Broad River you're fishing really. Up here where it runs into SC its mainly channel cats and bullheads so your bait doesn't have to be big really to catch anything. Between Cherokee Falls Dam and Ninty-nine Island Dam I use small bluegill, large minnows and nightcrawlers to catch channel cats.

Welcome to the BOC Drew and Jason.

The deeper holes hold some good fish but they're hard to get to in some areas. I've caught a few and just a few ok cats above Gaston Shoals Dam(Dravo Dam).

How far can you go up river between the Cerokee Falls Dm and the Dravo Dam? I stumbled across that access Saturday but didn't have time to put in and check it out.

I used to fish the very bottom of the river down around Columbia and did well with cut shad, especially the heads and mid "gut" sections of smaller shad.

A little ways up where the river flows shallower around a lot of rocks I have seen some folks do real well with hellgramites.

Honestly I think it would be better to fish between Cherokee Fall and Dravo by canoe or kayak. They are some deep water between the two but its rather rocky on both sides. You could fish from Cherokee Fall upstream if you put in at Cherokee Falls with a jon boat but you wouldn't be able to go very far. Same trouble with Dravo, you could get a jonboat in but the rocks would be rough until you were downstream a little ways. But before you come to the access point at Cherokee Ford it would be way to rocky for a jonboat.
