Thanks for the welcome Johnathan,
Seems like I always end up salt water fishing when I am down there. I am definitely going to do some freshwater fish when we are down there in June.

Welcome John. I will second what David said. Hard to target alone, they just kinda come with the mix. Definitely more likely to catch in the swamps and backwaters. There are plenty in the Savannah area. I live in SC now but I'm from GA and still fish around the Savannah River. It's a big river and there are plenty of back swamps and small creeks that run into it. Those slower waters are great for bass, crappie, bluegill, warmouth. There is also some great Red Breast waters around there. Either way it's a beautiful area to fish.

I catch warmouth here in SC while fishing the backwaters for bluegill.
My avatar pic is a warmouth caught in the S. Edisto river near Aiken, SC.
I don't target them specifically, though, and I don't know anyone who does. They just kinda fall in the mixed bag of fish I catch, although always in the back bays and swamps

Not too sure how good the Warmouth fishing is here in MI as I don't normally target them. I did catch a nice one yesterday while fishing for Crappie. I'm studying up on them so I can try the right techniques for catching more. May be especially helpful when I go visit family in Savannah GA as I think they have plenty down there.

Oh yea it's been hot. We've gone through a stretch where it's been upper 80s at night! I've fished Santee Coppee area once and a storm ended up coming in so I didn't have much time. That's an area I've been researching. I'd like to check out the north end where the river comes in. I've heard that swamp area has good fishing. By the way how do you post pictures?
Comment by Jeffrey D. Abney on August 19, 2016 at 2:10pm

That's good to hear Jonathan.......has it been South Carolina HOT?...Share a few pics when you get back out.......I like the pan fishing in South Carolina when the water is down on the rivers too........Do you make it down to Santee Cooper at all........still catching big Crackers and Gills there after all these years.....

Comment by Jonathan Titshaw on August 19, 2016 at 6:57am
Thanks Jeff. The Big Pee Dee and Little Pee Dee weren't hit as bad as some of the other rivers in SC. The water levels are low right now and fishing has been pretty good. The red breast have been kind of a challenge to find but the bluegill and Warmouth bite pretty regular. I know the Edisto has a reputation for some good red breast and Warmouth fishing. I need to get down there.
Comment by Jeffrey D. Abney on August 18, 2016 at 3:46pm

Welcome Jonathan.......I lived in the Low Country for 13 years and enjoyed the river fishing in South Carolina......most often the Edisto........how has the fishing been on Pee Dee since the big floods last year?.....
