I got down to Charleston earlier in the summer to pal around with some folks I've met along the way.  Squeezed out some time to hop on a boat for a couple of days of fishing the big water in the sounds and the open ocean.  Lots of variety.  Lots of toothy critters.  Lots of big reels spinning backwards.  I live for this shit.

(Exactly the right amount of amberjack, I've hauled on a lot of these babies in the 30#+ class, and at some point, like a real hot sauce, the only flavor is pain)

(My first time scoring one of these drag screamers on the fly.  Get in the box!)

(Also a first on the fly.  An absolute menace for the bait boys targeting kings, but I've seen so many of these big fuckers laid up on top of the wrecks over the years, and finally got one to actually eat a fly.  Look at that beautiful gnarly grin!)

(This girl gave me the coolest, most violent eat of my life.  We found her cruising right against the sand in about a foot of water.  This is usually a tough scenario to connect on, but she absolutely garbaged the fly when I put it on her nose)

Cheers y'all!
