|Lowcountry Kayak Anglers Assemble!|
I had a blast, not only getting to meet new faces and socialize, but the fishing was excellent. 99% of the reports I received had fish stories...reds, trout, flounder, and stripers were caught.
My luck extended beyond just throwing some bait out and soaking it - the plastics worked for me, too! First fish I caught was a small trout. I would catch a few of these dinky trout throughout the day.

Mud minnows accompanied me on the kayak, and I put them to use - fishing around docks and creek mouths. I caught two lower-slot reds off one dock, and lost a nice one who broke off along a piling...it was a blast!
The big one of the day came on a drift back towards the landing, while blind-casting along some disturbed water - I hooked into a big red...he spun me about in circles as I brought him to the kayak.
I was happy to see this redfish - it was the perfect ending to a great day on the water!
