For some crazy reason a couple of us over the hill fishermen decided to do a little fishing in the Wando River and Horlbeck Creek yesterday.
-never seen the river so rough-3’ to5’ at no interval-blowing 25 to 30 out of the SW. Rode a following sea 'til we got thru the 41 bridge; however, anchoring was almost impossible; so we slammed our way back to Horlbeck from whence we came.
-managed to anchor near the first bend to port. We had lunch and caught one blue crab.
-not good, decided to fish some docks-same anchoring problems until we got way up in the creek where there was some protection; but we had to set two anchors to hold the boat from blowing all over the creek-never had to do that in a creek before! Caught two more blue crabs-that was it for the day.
-only good thing we found out was that our 20’ter handles pretty well in inshore SCA conditions-didn’t see too many bay boats out there yesterday-owners were too smart:smiley:
