Hello all, Just got my membership validated seconds ago.:big_smile: About us: My wife and I live in Ware Shoals (just north of greenwood), and have our son and granddaughter living here. Before you ask how I am 38 and have a granddaughter (actually 2 this weekend! WOOHOO! second youngest daughter is due this weekend!), I am married to an older woman. :wink: I moved out here from Arkansas 10 years ago to be with my wife, where I catfished ALL the time. I have never fished SC until 2 days ago. We didn't catch a thing but it was great being at the water again after 10 years! We plan on doing MUCH fishing now. We are planning on buying one of the hobie mirage drive tandem kayaks hopefully, so we can float the saluda down to lake greewood, and do a LOT of lake greenwood fishing when my health allows. About me: I am disabled due to several reasons, main one being 3 crushed discs in my spine with spinal tear. I can still walk but but I have to use a cane on my good days and a walker on bad days (no fishing on bad days) and can't carry anything over 5-7 pounds without excruciating pain, so you will probably NEVER see me holding a large fish or large stringer of fish. lol I'll be taking pics of course, but probably not me holding them. maybe the wife! :big_smile: Maybe I can get some invisible line and hang it up and me stand behind it and LOOK like I'm holding it? LOL! At the current moment, I'm waiting on a greenwood county DNR officer to call (I requested it from DNR because the nice lady couldn't answer a couple of questions for me). One of them being a problem I have on the saluda... One thing I can NOT stand is seeing trash on rivers and lakes... It's one of my pet peeves... My wife and I cleaned the bank where we went fishing the best we could and it looks great now, HOWEVER, there is a LARGE pile of trash that has gathered from the flow of the river in a calm place... I can easily wade it, BUT, the problem is that this pile of floating trash is up against a large pile of wood that could be holding a large group of fish or other animals, and to get the trash I would be trampling all over it... As bad as I want to clean it out, I really don't want to harm any natural fish beds... I know for a fact there are bream there because we got a LOT of bites in that area. If the game warden says it's ok, what should I do? I want to get that trash out so bad, but it would kill me to destroy that habitat... I'm at a loss on this one.
