    Ya'll done real good, congrats on the nice bunch of fish !!

    Talk about stickin it out...Bambu and I tried also ( stripers/cats ) but the night bite instead. I was so sick I thought I was gonna die out there. Think I've been having a ear/sinus infection but even my nose started pouring out blood everywhere...no lie, but I wouldn't stop fer nothin. It rained bad and the wind about sunk us . Anchor broke its hold and then caught again but stuck us sideways...2 more inches and we would have sunk.....scary thought in the dark,LOL. Was about to cut the anchor line but it popped free at the last second. Wind gusts got so bad that Steve had to go in the water to get the boat on good.....oh whata night.

    Did we get any fish.......NO...LOL. Heck we even had to buy bait twice cause the first batch died on us ; (

    I'm in this BoC spring fish-off that started today....... and I'm going to start up hard core now..........I'm gonna need ya Larry when ever possible ; )~

    Next Sunday the family is going to NY for about 5-days so I'm doing NOTHING but eat, sleep, and catch them cats ; )
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Well I'm happy ya'll did good, well deserved, I know you guys have been waiting for a good day. Like I said before too, that morning/day bite is doing better atm...thats unusual for Hartwell...and I'm sure it wont last ; )

    If ya'll are looking for big threadfins look up by 12mile park and towards the Clemson bridge. Birds are pushing hard at 8:30am every morning and I've been lucky to cast net them off the shore ; ) Aint seen herring...have seen a few small gizzards here and there...go get em boyz.

    Fishmccall, that is a great day fishing!

    How is the water level down there now? Last time over the lake was back in January and it was looking bad. Have they held any water this fall?
