Hey Spud, my buddy went to the Wando this a.m. and caught about 25 specks. Only 4 were keepers. The rest were 13-131/2 inchers. You have any luck ?

Inchers...plus a couple of decent spottails...but nothing really good today. High tide was about 730 and it is about a 3 quarter moon...Seems like the closer it gets to a full moon the worse the bite.

Happens all the time! The biggest need in the highway system in this state is adding another lane to I-26 from I-95 to the 3 lanes below Columbia since that is really 2 interstates (26 and 77.)


They need three lanes from Greenville to Charleston. I was

One to cut over across the top of Lake Murray between Lexington and Batesburg and down to I-20 and I-26 and then one to cut East from about the same spot over to I-77. That would eliminate all the bottlenecking on 26 with traffic that is mostly going to Charleston, Augusta, or Myrtle Beach and back. Instead, all they do is mess with the lanes and ramps. That is SC in a nutshell...build first and put the infrastructure in much later.

I have been there and know what you mean that is a scary time because of their being in a rush could cause someone to have a wreck or even worse die and usually from my experience the car is about two exits away from getting off. But it is in such a hurry they do not care what harm they might cause just so they get on their exit 2 min before they would.


Worst yet

Spud, you're correct. That drive has gotten so much worse since the 1st time I drove from Charleston to Clemson for a game back in 1999.

We had season tickets from 1999-2009 and used to make the drive for every home game from Mt. Pleasant. 2-Lane traffic on I-26 has gotten completely out of hand.

Yep - it’s always been bad - Spud .... But back when we had season tickets we didn’t mind - because when Tommy Bowden was coaching we always won our home games -<img border="> .... Oh ... wait .... actually ... -<img border=">

Oh man, don't tell me that. I plan to visit Charleston at the end of the month from the Spartanburg area. It usually only takes me 3+ hours to get there, but I agree with the poster saying they need 3 lanes from G'ville to Chucktown.


every interstate in SC needs to be 3 lanes each way

Agree with other T-Netters. Driving around the state is painful at minimum.
