We fished the Lowcountry Tarpon Tournament last weekend and had a great time. The bite however was a bit slow due to weather. Only 4 fish were caught in the tournament out of 18 boats. Douglas Miller, Cheech Castellvi, Johnny T., and I ended up releasing a fish in the first hour of the tournament and scored 2nd place overall. Congratulations to Capt. Robert Mayer from Georgetown for taking 1st place with 2 tarpon releases on day 1. JR Waits from Charleston also released a fish on day 1. This is a great tournament that benefits local tarpon research conducted by the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust. Please consider fishing the tournament with us next year. www.lowcountrytarpon.com
Also had a great redfish and flounder trip with the boss-man last week. Bruce Bailey, CEO of Georgetown Hospital System came out with his friend Rudy and caught the slam – redfish, trout, and flounder. Rudy caught some nice trout and a tagged redfish while Bruce took home the big flounder of the day. They also had some shots at tarpon that didn’t materialize. This is the time of the year to be out on the marsh…now through December is prime time for redfish and trout. Hope everyone has a great fall season.
