My son and I took a short trip this afternoon only armed with artificial baits. For the first time we turned right up river with my first SC freshwater license hot off the printer. Fished two spots and the third was a charm. With a pearl chatterbait I caught a fish that I have caught hundreds, if not a thousand of times before. However, this was my first in SC; a striper! Next cast from my son he had his first one as well, albeit a little bigger than mine:angry:. He caught his second before mine and I quickly changed to what he was using…a pearl with green chartreuse salt water assassin paddle tail. We ended up battling back and forth. Final tally was son 4, dad 6 plus a lone trout. All were in the 14-17" range.
