Capt Rick had a 2 person 6 hour charter today with Ben and Mike. We had
live mudminnows for bait and some artificials. However we only got a few
bites and did not catch anything today. I explained that this a tuff time
for inshore, but we took a shot at some reds and stripers, but didn't
catch. Water temp was 55 at most places.
Capt Jeremy had a charter for Dennis Obryans company. We go at least once
or twice a year. He had Gary Baum with him today and they hand out Tshirts
to the waterman working the Savannah river. They distribute anywhere from
50 to 150 shirts a trip. Below is a couple pictures of the targets that
they distributed it to and some pictures below that of out New 10 foot
Power Pole blade with CMONSTER controls.
Capt Rick had a chance to go scouting with his good friend Capt. Ray Crawley.
Capt Ray is an expert on pitchen and twitchen artificial baits. Water
temp was 51°and the airtemp was a little warmer. Capt Ray had heard
that there were some schools of redfish over on the Vernon River, so we
cruised over there.
didn't find any, but did locate some spots to check at another time. Came
back into our area and started pitchen and twitchen for some speckled
trout. We found a nice school of skinny trout and caught maybe 9 in about
30 minutes. Capt Ray decided to keep 3 for a couple of trout dinners.
The rest were released unharmed. I did catch the 2 largest at 15 and 16
inches. The first 2 pictures are of Capt. Ray, the last is my first 15
inch trout on the floor. Had a great afternoon fishing with Capt Ray.
All fish caught on artificials in about 20 feet of water.
