Kicking off the 2018 version of this thread with some low country action.  Chartreuse and white clouser was the ticket. Guests can't see images. Please login or login

I don't know about you guys, but this winter has been brutal here in the piedmont. I feel the warm water season getting ready to bust open after a couple 70 degree days.

It's back to normal Feb. weather this week.  But I plan to check to see if the white bass are running this week.

We're looking at a possible total rainfall of 20" over the last two weeks here so my fishing is non existent. Still haven't wet a line this year. Our crappie will probably have their spawn ruined this year.

The boat was launched and gear loaded in short order and we motored out into the river on a chilly windy morning. We anchored up on spot number one and bracing against the wind we waited for the sun to rise. We were alone at first but a little later we were joined by almost silent sculling teams as they worked their way down the river at the stand of the tide.
As dawn broke we cast into the ebbing tide and our flies swung down and across the channels where we imagined schools of shad holding. It wasn’t long before we began hooking up with the hickory. But Fred wasn’t happy with the hook up rate, we blamed the weather and everything else, but we were still catching fish, and those forked tailed anadromous fish fight well and put a bend in the rod.

It was a mixed bag and we caught herring, yellow perch, and I even caught (snagged) three gizzard shad and ITUF caught a striper.

We had a couple of doubles.

We moved up the river among several other boats, some of which were leaving as we dropped anchor, indicating that it was slow there as well.
But we caught a few hickory and then I got into an American, you can tell right off the bat the power that these larger fish possess.

Things slowed down there too and we moved on down to the American Hole as ITUF calls it. There he got to catching, first cast a hickory, second cast another hickory, third cast an Ameican! Damn.
