Wading for Trout
06/07/21 2:44


Big trout are biting! Had a couple of Low Country buddies come do some wade fishing. The stars lined up and the winds died down just enough. All fish were caught on a Vudu Vixen by Egret Baits. Color was white with chartreuse tail.

I've had many encounters with "the tax man." Every time, he's been after my fish and not me. He's taken fish off my stringer and off the end of my line as I was trying to land the fish. I really believe that fish are his first choice by far. If he gets me, it'll be by accident. That's why my stringer is 15' long. I keep his food as far away from my legs as I can.

I was busy...as I cleaned every one of them. We ate fish every day, and I vacuum sealed the rest in meal size portions. We split them up and brought them home to share with family and friends. Folks this far inland don't get much speckled trout...and they're very appreciative when they do.

Unreal the number of trout out there. Congrats, Harold, along with the invites you extend out to others.

I do have a question regarding the trolling motor.

I notice that you have the depth collar slid down towards the foot. It also appears the maybe the black plastic collar or whatever it's called that extends upward from the motor/steering portion is broken somewhat from perhaps coming unlocked while underway with the depth collar at a higher point.

Perhaps my observation is wrong, but mine is broken in the way I mentioned due to having the depth collar up higher and after stowing to move, hit a wave that caused it to unlock slamming the trolling motor down breaking it. Sliding collar down would eliminate that.

Mine still works one it catches but need to get repaired.

Thanks in advance.

NN, my collar is not broken. I just don't twist it around to get it ALL THE WAY down. Where it is on the shaft will prevent if from launching unintendedly. That happened to me the second week I had that motor. I did not heed their warning and I did NOT slide that collar all the way down to the foot of the trolling motor. I was running about 35 mph when I hit some waves which caused a medium jolt to the boat. That was all it took. My trolling motor bounced up and over. I stopped immediately, but the damage had been done. It shattered the shaft from the motor all the way up to the top. FORTUNATELY, the warranty covered it. One time was all it took for me. Now, WHENEVER I move the boat, I always slide the collar down the shaft to prevent another such accident.

Thanks for the reply. Couldn't tell for sure from pic, but seems we have had the same experience with different results. Good deal on them taking care of under warranty. Gotta remember to slide collar down while underway.

Hi Harold,

Mostly I don't explain myself here, nor anywhere else really, but since we have met, I respect you, I know you are a great fisherman, we have fished together a couple times on the hooter, you don't engage in any of the political nonsense that has ruined this website, and to my knowledge you have always given more to this website than you have taken, I will explain my motives to you sir.

Let me start by asking you a question. When you come to engage here at Charleston Fishing do you come directly to the forums section like myself and most long time users, or do you land on the slick mobile homepage that's all the rage these days in the newer www world? If you aren't sure what I am talking about here is the link I reference.

https://www.charlestonfishing.com/


You are kind of a big deal there lately in case you didn't know. Anyway, I'll await your answer before I continue. I guess you are on central time, so maybe you'll see this tonight, if not we can take it up tomorrow.




In the meantime, here's a hint for the rest of the crew in the cheap seats.

Edisto Fisher,
Like you, when I come to this site, I go straight to the Forums. I had never seen that page that popped up when I clicked the link you sent. I know that the site was sold within the past year or so. I spoke to Andy about that at the time. I have always experienced a few hiccups when trying to post photos, etc., but was just thankful for the site. Now that new folks own the site, I'm sure they have their own ideas about how the layout should be. They've invested their money and it's not costing me anything to participate on this site. If they screw it up, it only hurts them financially.
As for the petty politics that I see from time to time on this site, that's not my thing. I don't engage in it. On a related note, if I were running the site, I'd have everyone use a real name that's verifiable. All these anonymous screen names open the door for snarky comments, bullying, and a bunch of other B.S. that has no place on this type of site...IMHO. I'd cut that out. When I have seen a lot of the arguments back and forth on any number of issues on this site, I'm reminded of a truism. A trait of all quarrels is weakness on BOTH sides. Somebody needs to be strong enough to shut up. I don't really know a lot of the folks here because of their screen names. I don't like that, but that's the way it is. I've been very open from the first year of this site was created. I use my real name and my real contact info. I wish everyone else would, also.
Call me if you'd like to discuss any of these issues a little further. My number is 931-607-8784.

Hi Harold. Great to see you post again. That looks like fun but my little white legs resemble a trout too much for me to do that!

I bet you cleaned all those fish in under an hour. I only clean trout, now, in the manner in which you showed me in that video you sent me. Thanks again for that.

This isn’t the video he sent me but it’s the same way with a fillet knife. Pretty impressive when you watch a Cajun Clem about ten trout in a minute.

Hello again Harold,

Sorry it took me so long to reply, but I have worked like a chain gang convict today for darn near the same wages. Because of that I'll try and keep this short and sweet like a bottle of that fine hogwash, only not as spicy.

The reason I asked about the landing spot when you come to CF is because you, like Off The Chain and many others have stated, had no idea that part of the website existed. I felt like you should be made aware that the posts you put up here in the forums section reach a much wider audience. Just to show how much of a difference just look at the number of hits the "ADMIN-LOOK IN HERE" thread 23Sailfish posted has now. Do you think the 20 or so folks that post here anymore are clicking in those thousands of times?

Not that there is anything at all wrong with that mind you, but here is the rub.......for me anyway. I feel like the mule pulling the plow deserves his fair share of the sweet feed at the end of the day. We (but mainly guys like you in particular) put highly sought after content up that is sporting and fishing related. The current admin then copies those pictures and fact filled information you provide, then they transfer it to a slick mobile "money making" section of the website where sponsors pay for "clicks" that the cherry picked information provides. Brilliant really, and like I said there isn't a single thing wrong with that, but again I feel like those providing the pictures, reports, and content (us mules) should reap at least a smidgeon of the benefits gained by our hard work (some sweet feed at the end of the day if you will).


For the record it's not a faster forum experience I am shooting for when I posted those links in your reports sections. Its not wanting the ability to post larger pictures, the lack of PM access, nor any of the other ancient idiosyncrasies of this website 23Sailfish and many others complain about. What I want is pretty much is exactly what you want and were talking about in your response to me......things like the hateful back and forth political arguments that never end and deteriorate into filthy name calling that have no place in a fishing forum to end. The constant bombardment of left or right wing cut and paste propaganda that is designed and placed here simply to agitate and perpetuate this nonsense needs to stop. It is this behavior that, in my opinion, that has brought this very fishing resource to its knees.

In a nutshell mostly what I am after is just a tiny bit of moderation to stop the half dozen or so people that don't hunt or fish at all, but just simply come here daily to stir up schitt and to feed their self aggrandized egos. The place is overran with self proclaimed Dick Heads and multi-alias BillyBobs that don't contribute a single thing to the original intentions of this website for those who want to use it as a resource and I am trying to do something about it besides cast complaints on deaf ears.

I have written to the Admin a few times, sometimes they answer, but mostly not. I know they are looking in occasionally because my username has changed, so I have that going for me anyway. For now I'll keep knocking and hope they eventually answer. The posting of the links in your report section was just my way of knocking louder. For what its worth, I did wait until page 2 of your awesome wade report to post the link, sorry if it upset you, that was not my intention.

I look at it like this Harold, if you saw someone using your exact sauce recipe, your exact logo, your exact packaging, and basically your entire corporate identity without giving your credit or some sort of compensation would you be pissed? All I am asking for is a tiny bit of sweet feed in the forum section at the end of the day for the content we provide pro bono.

Is that too much to ask? You said you didn't understand what was up with me posting that link, I hope you see what I saw now.


Can I get an AMEN up in here brother? How's about a high 5? Fist bump? Tip of the cap?


Keep posting Harold, don't pay any attention to me. When and if things change around here you can thank me then, until then I'll keep posting links and knocking on doors just looking for a little sweet feed, and you keep putting up those awesome reports I so enjoy reading.

Dang it Edisto fisher, first time I ever hit the Home button. I now understand what you mean. CFC is fishing for Hits. I wonder if admin realizes that they are putting out false information with this thread? Anyone besides a few would automatically assume Harald's pics were from the Charleston area rather than Louisiana.
