Sometimes you don't have the best of luck
September is a time of plenty in the waters of the Lowcountry. Unless, of course, you were shrimping and fishing with me this weekend. It all started (badly) on Friday afternoon when Julian Levin and I decided to go shrimping. The tide was not optimal but we figured we would still be able to catch a decent amount of shrimp. We set-up our poles at Crab Bank where a shallow flat transitions into a channel. Historically, this has been a very productive spot. However, on Friday evening, it certainly was not. While we did not catch a lot of shrimp, it was a great evening on the water. On Saturday morning, it was windy and rainy. Tough conditions but I figured I would still be able to catch a decent amount of fish. Wrong again! Actually, I caught a lot of fish and completed an inshore slam. Unfortunately, the largest fish was only 14 inches long. Still, it was better than a sharp stick in the eye (and shrimping on Friday night). Hopefully, this weekend was an anomaly.
