    If you can scrape the cash together, you might hire a guide with a boat. However, the reports I've seen put the price at about $200 for freshwater :eek:oooh:. An alternative is to get enough friends together to chip in for a saltwater charter; that should bring down the cost per person. If you do that, don't forget to bring some money to tip the deckhand; in this area, it's how they make their money.

    Just bankfish from one of the lakes. Who knows what'll happen...It'll be nice to at least satisfy that craving. Good luck, I feel your pain.

    Whoa, it seems to me S.C. has three or four fair sized rivers and a couple of very large lakes with miles and miles of shoreline.
    You know fishing isn't just about catching , it's also about being in the outdoors, pursuing the fish where they are not lumping in the boat, learning about the hard to fish places and what works when everything else doesn't.
    Instead of saying there are no fish in the local pond, try a new technique and see if you can get one those that were to smart to fall for the usual tricks. Very few waters get fished out, the fish just get wise to whats being presented.
    If nothing else it will get you out into the out doors for a while and if you catch a fish anytime you are fishing consider it a bonus.

    Have you been to the Diversion Canal on Santee Cooper or the Re-Diversion Canal? What about the river below Pinnopolis Dam? I have caught some good fish over 20lbs from the docks in the marinas. Take a drive, look around, I think you'll find there are lots of opportunities...W
