Wednesday Fishing

PostThu Oct 23, 2014 3:17 pm

The weather seemed to be nice when I left the house early Wednesday, 22nd, morning, but it didn't last. The wind kicked up to a steady 15kts out of the north and made for a wet ride through Charleston Harbor.

I thought twice and then the third time and I kept the throttle where it was and made 26kts around Ft Sumter. The sky was clear and cool.

I had a couple of hundred live shrimp in the well and after a few hours of spot jumping, I wound up with 22 speckle trout that ranged from 22" to 16" and close to 20 red drum from 18" to 14". Then one lone flounder had a wound on it's back. Oh, one of the spot tail had zero spots. Kind of odd. All fish were released to be caught next week, weather permitting.

Anyway, a good day on the water...

Oh, how about a quick video on rigging a live shrimp...

Glad you did fine. We got hammered with strong winds on Tuesday

Nice when you get catch numbers like that! That was rough. Hate when wind changes so quickly. Which boat you have? The 197 or 222? Doing 26kt on those seas is impossible on my 180.

I have the 222SF. Tabs down, spray screen up and driving from the starboard side of the console. A little wet and bumpy.
