Just some more pics from this week. Lots of rain this weekend that ate up a lot of fishing time, but still some action in between storms. The cooler temps have the fish in a cooperative mood if you can dodge the rain. Had some great tailing action on this morning’s flood tide before the weather moved in. We’ve got plenty of good flood tides in the forecast and the tarpon fishing should start to get rolling in the next week or two.

Wow – we had some excellent fishing this weekend. The weather was near-perfect and the fish were shrimping hard – with backs and tails out of the water. We even saw one redfish leap completely out of the water attacking shrimp. It doesn’t get any better than a warm November day in the marsh. I fished with Clay & Penn on Saturday and then had my regular fly-guy Chris on Sunday. Chris is a devoted fly angler and an excellent fly caster – he can really put it on em. My advice would be to throw those shrimp patterns for the next several weeks – DOA shrimp, Gulp shrimp, and slow-sinking shrimp flies have all been effective lately.

Had a great weekend of fishing with some awesome people. Justin and Thomas came up from Charleston and pounded the redfish and blacktip sharks on Saturday. We had a great bite all morning. Henry and I fished on Sunday and enjoyed the best redfish bite I’ve seen all summer. Henry is from Long Island – I think he said it best when he said “those redfish are really some scrappers” (insert Long Island accent here). He boated a monster fish and we had plenty of doubles throughout the day. We even got a little tarpon recon mixed-in towards the end of the morning. I finished the weekend off with some tarpon scouting with Capt. Newman Weaver & Cubby and a mega crab-boil with my neighborhood amigos. Very blessed to be living here in the Lowcountry!
Crabs – blues and stones – yum
Here’s a picture of the giant sea-monster gator that weighed more than the tarpon we were hoping to catch. Huge!
Took my old high school bros Jeep & Matt fishing today. They put a whoopin on the fish and kept me entertained all day long. After awhile they got tired of catching redfish so we went to the river. We lost a couple of nice catfish at the boat – dang. Glad to have these boys aboard today – you could tell they were having a good time.
Fished the falling tide with Troy & Scott today. The fished cooperated really well on the secret bait 🙂 The boys tore em up for a few hours and then we had to tow in a broke-down jon boat. Hopefully that threw us all some good karma for awhile. We had a nice bonnethead shark on the line, but he broke us off midway through the fight. Great to see the sharks back in the marsh. Had a great time. Saying the weather was beautiful would be a major understatement.
