The fishing is holding true for the time of year. November is here and the Redfish are biting in the surf. I fished with Uncle Hog and Capt Mark Nicols in the surf yesterday. The day didnt really go as planned. We started out great. Got an early start out of Charleston and headed north to some of the more remote barrier islands. I love to fish in Charleston but after a really busy summer we were both ready to get out of town. We trailered Mark’s boat and launched in McClellanville.
The main goal of the day was to have a relaxing day on the water. Low stress and not much to tend to. We had sand spikes for the rods, a chair and a cooler. We were gonna relax hard core. After hitting a couple spots for some shrimp for bait we had a few dozen and headed to the beach. I slowed the boat just before the beach and was gonna tell mark a little bit about where we were and the motor died. Whoa! Oh!, and did I forget to mention the dead battery at the boat landing before we left? Again, this was going to be a relaxing fishing outing. When Mark’s boat died and we realized that someone had siphoned all of the gas out of his tank after he last went fishing in Charleston we could have both lost our cool. We didn’t. I just called Uncle Hog and he brought us some gas and fished with us. Ended up having an awesome day. About 15 small redfish in the surf and one little black drum. Shot some video on the beach and a little on the way home. This November is gonna be exciting.
