    Welcome to the BOC its good to have you aboard if you aint catching them on skip jack if i was you i would get you a throw net and try to catch you some shad and cut down the fillets and cut them in pieces, and use them, and plus chicken livers is good channel bait too.

    If you got a boat you can catch cats in the twelve mile area from the landing to martins creek. We use cut bait mostly but you can catch bream on rod n reel and fish with them.

    Welcome to the BOC!! The answers to all your present and future questions can be answered by the fine folks here. Though I have fished for over 50 years, I'd still be in the dark ages without this group. Have fun and GO FISHIN'!!

    I lived in Clemson for 6 years and never had much luck on keowee, but have pulle dmany cats 25lbs and up out of hartwell. The twelve mile creek area is a great spot. You can also catch the bait up in the creek right now. I use a light at night to ctach my bait.

    Yes ther is it is in the twelve mile recreation area. (Gotta pay $4) Take 123 to Clemson and at the intersection that goes downtown take a left towards daniel high instead of a right to go downtown. You will go about a mile and see it on the left. If you get to a bridge (was under construction) you went to far.
    Good luck

    If you fish Hartwell and see that you would retun often, I encourage you to stop by the guard shack and invest in an annual pass. I think they are $35 and you will save money in the long run. Good luck and welcome to the BOC and SC!
