Sunday Early Morning Fun

Went chasing Jacks early Sunday. Found bait in the moonlight for later in the morning, then headed under the bridge and waited for some birds and some action, well they found us we didn't have to find then. Ended up chasing a small school around for 15min or so until I got a bite and got a little guy back to the boat and that scattered the school I guess, never heard or saw em again after that. Then proceeded to locate some good trout with shrimp under a slip cork. Probably put 8 in the boat until my buddy got nice black drum ro end the day on. Back home by 10, beat the heat and the traffic!Fishing Nerd "No bar, no pinball machines, no bowling alleys, just pool... nothing else." ...well, some fishing too!

Trout on fire in July

Had some SC buddies who read this site come get in on some trout fishing. I'm sure they will see this post. I hope they post some of the photos they took. Some of these were caught wading and some were caught from the boat. I prefer wading, but when fishing deeper holes, the boat is a necessity. This time of the year, I'll fish from the boat early in the morning and wade when the sun gets up. Good thing about wading in July....when it gets hot, just wade a little deeper. Wading is a great way to beat the summer heat. Don't mind the sharks, aka "tax collectors." They aren't after us. All fish, including the bull red, were caught tight lining plastics. Catching bull reds like the one pictured is a common occurrence and quite a thrill, especially when wading waist deep in the water. Pix are of three days fishing. One limit on front of boat, another limit on back of boat, and a fair day of 14 on the cleaning table. Harold Wilcox

Night shift means sunrise bite

Worked my night shift downtown and could not resist trying to get some on topwater in the morning, at 5:30 I was launching my kayak out of bulow and managed to snag one on the swimbait I was trolling behind me. Zero looks at my spook, but just happy to bring one to hand

Anyone heard of additional makeup days for 2021 season for the red snapper since the weather was so bad for july 9-11th here in South Carolina??? SOO many of them out there, should be at least one per person per day! like BSB nuisance fish when targeting grouper... anyone else seeing this?Kencraft 23T twin 175f Suzuki's


A couple years ago I was fishing with Ray and Josh, two friends from my neighborhood. It was an overcast morning and as they say the fishing was great, but the catching was fair. We had a late morning high tide and as we approached slack the bites faded away as they often do when the water stops moving. I decided to try working down a long bank that I usually fly by on plane going from one high producing (and likely overfished) spot to another...

Will be in Destin FL in a couple of weeks with the family. Would like to book an offshore trip for the 6 of us, including 7 year old and 10 year old sons. Any recommendations? The one outfit I was hoping to book can't accommodate, so starting from scratch now. Thanks

Curious, I'm going to try some small snaps to make changing lures easier. I'm wondering if anyone has any experience good bad or other? I feel like if the hooks hanging off are not spooking them than the small snap won't and the action should be same as loop knot? Key West 210 Bay Reef
