Relocated to SC from NJ about 4 years ago.  Most of the lakes I fished had silty, sandy, muddy or plain hard dirt bottoms.  There was gray clay in the area but not near lakes.  A lot of red clay, again not near lakes.  My new home base is the Greenville area.  Taylors/Greer to be specific has a small lake with a red clay bottom.  Although there are a few area with steep drops off the shoreline, most have extended flats out to drops to deep water.

Good water clarity, no stain or dinginess.  Extremely light emergent vegetation but I discovered a few weedbeds.

Finally, a few schools of threadfin shad bust the surface once in a while but not dependably.

I've caught fish with a variety of baits throughout the year but never dependably and never more that 2 fish/trip.  Solid strikes that is.

I don't get out as much as I'd like but who does?

Is there anything I'm missing beside the fact this is a totally new type of lake to me and it's gonna take time?
