Tamj and Mal-Pais,


Watch out for a couple of netters near that spot I told you about to catch those drum.  For more info, check out my thread on the General Satwater board.

Went out at daybreak on 5/12.  Sorry, I didn't take any pics.  Fished Taylor's Creek early, hooked a Spanish, a flounder, and a bluefish.  The bite was not on, so we headed to the Newport Marshes and ran into 3 reds.  Two were 17" and I caught one that went about 19".  All reds released.  Also caught about 10 small specks ranging from 12"-15".  Drum caught on 3" white pearl gulp shrimp.  Specks hit gulp and Fin-S.  The pinfish hit everything, including my Billy Bay halo grass shrimp.    Those things aren't cheap.

Saturday we fished the IFA Redfish Tour out of Charleston, SC.  Well, things could have went much better.  We went to our honeyhole first thing.  No one bite.  Then to a good low tide spot.  Nothing there either.  Out to the stumps we went.  This is usually a fail safe place.  Not today!  So we started back down the ICW, hitting every oyster bar that looked fishy.  Nothing.  Just before weigh in, the tide got high enough to get to one of our spots where they tail in the short grass.  We chased a couple of wakes, but they wouldn't take anything we threw, and that was alot.  We tried spinner baits, spoons, jigs with all kinds of combos on them, crank baits, top waters, soft plastics with weighted hooks, and even soaked some gulp, but they just would not eat for us.  That is pretty embarrasing, especially since we had been catching quality fish in the previous weeks.  No excuses, but I wonder if the storm sent alot of fish out of the skinny water.  I know that 10 lbs won the thing, but that was about a pound off from last year, so who knows.  One thing I did notice was that the water was cleaner around Charleston.  Maybe we should have stayed there, but we had a game plan.  I guess that plan just wasn't the right one come tournament time.  Well, there's always next year and alot of fun fishing in between.  Tigh lines and screamin drags to all y'all.

Tamj and Mal-Pais,


Watch out for a couple of netters near that spot I told you about to
catch those drum.  For more info, check out my thread on the General
Satwater board.

Paul, sorry to read about your experience.    I had two yahoos bust up a school of reds on Saturday.  We had boated 3 on 3 casts when they showed up.  They "trolled" (at about 4 knots) right between my boat and the bank, threw their anchor out with a big splash right on top of the school.  Their anchor didn't catch and the current pushed them through the creek mouth into the bay and they ran aground.  The last time I saw them, they were in the water, pushing their Parker to no avail.  Karma, yes, but the school was spooked.  If it wasn't for the little specks we were catching out in the channel, I would have been a little more miffed.

As the cliche goes, I've learned that you should never argue with an bugbear.  They wear you down and beat you with experience.

Szextreme, I think that was you and your buddy heading toward our drum hole as we were leaving Saturday around 2:30 as that thunderstorm blew up.  Hope you got your line stretched.

edit:  NCpierman and Paulg are my heroes when it comes to slot reds.  Its their world, I'm just fishing in it.

Mal_Pais,


Yes that was us! wish we would have batted down the hatches and stayed that rain in the newport area was only a scare! We ran far away back to the dock with not even a bite. Seamed the rain was just a nibble and went away. glad you guys had a good time out there. That hole at the end of the "Zig Zag Creek" as we call it usually produces some nice trout and every now and then there is a school on the flat. I think everyone recognizes me by my boat if I come in contact with ya tell me your on the waterman! Love to see some of your faces out there Just i really don't know yall! 


THE NAME IS SETH IF ANY OF YOU SEE ME OUT THERE! DON'T BE SHY! I'M NOT ONE OF THOSE NETTER GUYS

Tuesday.......Thought I would drop this pic in on the "Redfish Thread".  I caught several of these just inside the inlet in 2~3 feet of water.  Mostly sight casting to a nice size school and some blind casting into the white water.........

Don't mean to speak for Bryan but he guides in the Morehead/Beaufort/Cape Lookout area.  Would assume he is talking about Beaufort Inlet.

Woke up this morning and just couldn't convince myself to work. Left the marina about 10:30 AM.  Fished midday on a dropping spring low tide.  Newport Marshes didn't give up the goods.  2 flounder and 2 blues (at or below minimum size) was all I could find.  Blues hit Fin-S, flounder liked 3" new penny gulp shrimp.

Fished Taylor's Creek and found 3 undersized drum (15"-17") before the marsh went dry.  Nuclear chicken gulp shrimp was what they hit.

Light to no winds, and no rain until after 2 PM.

Had a chance to go yesterday up around Broad Creek in New Bern, wind beat me to death, and rays were EVERYWHERE, but found the Reds. All in all had fun, though will be glad when the wind dies down.
