Family and friends are what makes fishing special. This was particularly evident last week when my friend George Holleman was visiting. On the day George was available to fish, the wind was blowing 20 knots out of the Northeast.
From past experience, we knew the Wando River would be extremely rough and difficult to fish. However, Yellowhouse Creek would be safe to transit and less challenging to fish. So we launched the skiff into the falling tide and ran to Yellowhouse Creek. Along the way, we cast netted several dozen live shrimp to use for bait.
George and I concentrated our efforts on creek drains and marsh cuts that were out of the wind. As we pulled up to the first spot, I told George that the fishing was going to be tough. He replied that he was happy to be visiting and that a fish would be a bonus. George then cast a shrimp on lead head jig into the current seam created by the falling tide and immediately caught a Trout. I cast a Z-Man MinnowZ Houdini into the same area and hooked up as well.
As we fought the fish, George observed that this was some really tough fishing. We had a good laugh. We also caught a bunch of fish. Looking back on the day, I remember the laughs more than the fish.
As the weather cools, the fishing will heat up. Trout, Redfish and Flounder are beginning to feed with abandon. The next several weeks will offer the best fishing of the year. So reach out to your family and friends. I assure you the fishing will be special.
