Another great weekend in the lowcountry. We had massive amounts of rain Thursday night, all day Friday and Friday night. Add an East wind and we had flood tides over 8 feet Friday night.

Got up Saturday morning to heavy overcast and moderate wind....time to go fishing. Well as I was driving to the put in about an hour before first light I notice the road was UNDERWATER :eek: The creek and flats had connected with the river via a low spot on the road. Water was about 4 inches deep in the roadway. Ok enough rambling... on to the fishing

Tossed out dead shrimp and put a small trout and a 13 inch whiting in the yak by 6:30 am. My yakkin buddy launched alittle after 7 and we headed off in search of fish. We decided the best start would be to fish creek mouths as all that water came rushing out of the marsh. Good choice:D Trout and reds cooperated






Biggest red was only 22 inches, biggest trout was 17. When the bite slowed we decided to take a ride downstream through Wappoo Cut toward the Intercoast Waterway. We were only 2 hours from the tide turning, so we could count on slack water or a free ride back up if we timed it right.

Another good choice. We found some nice eddys and docks producing fish. Caught a few more trout and reds, then completed my inshore slam when a flounder grabbed a live shrimp under a popping cork. :D:D:D

A great day fishing and while overcast and breezt, no rain, so a huge improvement over last Saturday weatherwise.

Sunday morning decided to "sleep in" and rolled out of bed about 7:45. At the landing by 8:20 and in the water by 8:30. Bright skies, very little wind.

The water wasn't as high, but the marsh was still completely flooded. No point throwing the cast net til the water comes down a bit. Put some more whiting in the boat on long dead shrimp :--|. Gotta put the leftovers in the trash... whew.

The water started down and the riffles formed at creek mouths and the trout bite was ON!!!!

Went through a couple dozen live shrimp and put about as many trout in the yak. Also had schools ofthese little bastages ripping through all morning.

Off the water at noon to go home and be a responsible parent.

Fun couple of days on the water. I love the lowcountry

Nice fish man! It's fun takin' pix when you're the only one around. I'm thinkin' about a head mounted camera that can be operated w/ a mouth piece. :D

Good luck out there!

One of the guys on another forum got a helmet cam. He's shot some cool pics and video. Another one of our SCkayakfiahing guys has a gorillapod camera mount set up with the cam facing him from the front of the yak. He always gets nice shots.
