Arrived at Shem Creek at 7:15am. One of my friends caught this nice red off the dock while he was waiting on us to arrive (that’s what I get for going to Haddrell’s first):
The fishing was on fire! We caught around 8 reds total and some trout, including a great 20" trout. Unfortunately, it got off the hook as it was being loaded into the kayak. Oh, well.
Took a break for lunch and beers at Red’s, then back to the catching. It was a great day on the water! It was hot out there, but well worth it!
