    Does anyone know if the churning waters by the reactors on keowee are a sloid spot to catch the big ones....I have seen lots of people fish off the bank out there but have never tried myself. However i hear/see from surffing the net there is always some big fish around chruning waters...Let me know if anyone has had any luck out there. Thanks

    Its set in stone! Hittin lake keowee tomorrow, gonna see how it all plays out there by the reactors, hope to catch some breams before hand and give it a shot. I know its like 80 feet out there, still best to leave bait on bottom or what?

    The bream were picky the other day. Maybe bring another bait besides just worms. I ended up using a tiny piece of bream as bait for bait and it worked better than the worms, never the less they made me work. Still way better than catching them on Hartwell....g'luck out there.
