    I fished the tailrace of the Wateree River in Camden today. Was quite chilly when the breeze picked up but I managed to catch a nice little channel, about 3 pounds, and some too small blues. I caught more white perch than anything but was glad to get a nice fryer with the channel.

    You may have caught more if you weren't a USC fan!:smile2: I'm just going on with you!

    That's probably true, but then my expectations would be too high for next time. As a gamecock fan, my life is much more enjoyable if I keep my expectations low!

    I'm a life-long Gamecock fan and a graduate of USC---But, I'm also a realist so you won't find me arguing that USC is the only way to go, or even a good way to go! I hate to admit it but I even tried to not be a Gamecock fan at one point in my life and it just didn't work! Sometimes you just cain't help yourself when it comes to certain things.

    I don't mind a little ribbing from a Clemson fan, or a Georgia fan, Tennessee fan, Alabama fan, or any other fan. It's all in good fun! I actually find it funny when I see someone get upset because they are catching hell about "their team" because it isn't like they are out there playing themselves but some people take it so personally that you'd think they are!

    No, I actually fished from the bank that day. I haven't taken my boat out in a while but hope to do that soon.

    I couldn't agree more. I am a lifelong Clemson fan and I used to get into it as much as the next person. Like you said, We have no control what happens on the field.

    As far as the Wateree River is concerned, I will be glad when the water comes up enough to safely go down it. Can't wait to get back after them.

    Ricky, Welcome to the BOC! We definitely need to get back after them down there. Hope we get alot of rain to bring the water up so we can go. Maybe the ones who live down that way will keep us posted.
