had a 4 person 5 hour trip today with Andy, his brother in law Huey and
his son Aiden and his own 6 year old son Ivan. We departed the dock today
at 7am and headed out to Wassaw Sound.
goal was some Speckled seatrout and Redfish, but really got overpowered
by the ladyfish at our first drop. We caught a few Speckled seatrout there
but had to fight through the large ladyfish as well as a few sharks. Also
caught bluefish, a puffer fish and some small redfish. Everyone caught
their own fish including Ivan and Aiden.
had the largerst fish of the day, a nice Black Drum and Huey had the largest
Speckled trout today. This was fun family to fish with and both boys listened
to their dads and me .
had a 3 person 6 hour charter today with Todd, his brother Kevin and his
brothers son, Carson. We departed this morning at 6:30 for a 6 hour trip.
Originally we were going to have 2 people, but at the last minute, Carson
came and that was a good thing. He was the most accurate caster in the
group, although all of them were very good.
temp was 85.3 and we are on the cusp of a full moon , so the tides were
extra high and the current was very fast. We fished all the outgoing tide,
starting at the salt ponds and working back in.
struggled hooking up the first hour as they were all rusty from not fishing
inshore in a while and the trout bite was fast. After we moved to a better
trout drop, all caught fish, probably 40 or so trout, but most were too
small by 1/2 inch to keep. We also caught some whiting, and Todd caught
the only ladyfish . All in all a very fun trip with Carson doing his thing.
He was a pleasure to fish with and was a very nice young adult. Look forward
to fishing with this FAMILY again.
had a 4 person 4 hour charter today with Donnie, his son Darrell and Darrells
wife Stephanie and his Grandson Austin. Donnie just wanted to film his
family on the water fishing. We decided to bottom fish for whiting and
sharks and had action the whole time. I believe Austin is 8 years old
and he was very polite and a very smart young man and he listened to his
Dad and Grandad and that was refreshing!
landad a 3 and 1/2 foot Sandbar shark today on one of the whiting we caught
bottom fishing. Everyone caught some stingrays, but Austin caught a nice
blue fish and his dad caught a summer trout as well.
caught some small sharks as well as a neat hermit crab, that just held
on to the bait and was not hooked at all. It was a fun day for me fishing
with Austin, who is quite the fisherman. Hope to see them all again in
had a 1 person charter today with a friend, Tom who has been with me usually
once a month. This was a trip we had on 6/30/2019 ( yesterday) . Water
temp was 85 and muddy. However we were using my Popping corks and Adjustable
Popping corks and caught a mixed bag.
caught a 19 and a 17 inch keeper trout and Tom caught a nice 14 inch trout.
He also caught bluefish and ladyfish and a bonnethead shark. I caught
a few short trout as well, while testing out my smallest adjustable cork.
All in all a good day considering we are near the forth of July and there
is a lot of boat traffic on the water. Had a crab boat almost hit us as
he waked us once going by and a second time coming back the other way.
We discussed it over the water and he apologized. Notice the Haze on the
sunrise picture. The goverment is spraying alot to supposedly "cool
