    Went to Greenwood yesterday. The water must have been 3 foot down from a couple weeks ago and MUCH clearer. We fished from the upper end of the Reedy branch to the tressel south of the 221 launch ramp, in 15' to 32' of water.

    Used perch, fresh caught bream, and shrimp. Only action came on the shrimp. Didn't catch anything until we got in 28' to 30' of water. We ended up the day with 19 or 20 channels, most in the 5 lb to 9 lb range. The day was beautiful and made you happy to be on the water.

    Oh, by the way, it was 33 degrees when we left the launch ramp, with a 3 to 4 ft thick fog hanging on the water. Couldn't see anything so we had to use the GPS to navigate by. Almost felt like I was back on salt water. It cleared up pretty quick when the sun hit the water. :smile2:

    Word of warning::: :angry: That 221 launch ramp is in BAD shape. Pot holes on both right and left sides. The guy that took out before me really twisted his axle. We followed him until he turned off. His trailer was dog-tracking bad. I hope he made it home. So use care if you're going to use that ramp. Curt

    Good report / warning...It does appear that when a boat ramp owner charges $5 bucks to put your boat in, that they would keep their little pot of gold in better condition and do more than just take up money. I use this ramp for convenience only, otherwise the ramp, dock, driveway, all are in very poor condition, unsafe is more like it.

    Sea Duce, I'm no attorney, but if I were the guy who tore his trailer up on that launch ramp ahead of me, I would sure present the ramp's owner with a bill for trailer repairs. Then when he ignored the bill or refused to pay it, I would turn it over to my attorney.

    When you charge for a service or use of your facilities, you assume responsibility for the presumed safety of that facility or service, and are responsible for any unintentional damages caused from the use of that unsafe facility. Particularly since that isn't the first occurance.

    I'm sure there must be some government agency that oversees safety of such pay facilities.

    Just my two cents worth.

    I agree, that boat ramp has always been poorly kept. Location, location, location. I believe I could do a better job if I owned the place. Doesn't take long to get you ROI if you justed tried a little harder. I'm sure they have to have a business lisense and insurance to boot.
