Tea-colored creek

Fished this AM for the first time since the heavy rains Sunday. Runoff vs incoming tide resulted in dark brown detente, rising slack tide for several hours. Shrimp were gone (salinity too low?), less bait on the surface. Managed to get some finger mullet cast netting off a sand(mud) bar.
Caught this copper-colored beauty. Amazing that its color had deepened so much in a few days of darker water.


Skiiiiiinnnnnnyyyy fish…

I guess upper Wando

Summer fish. A but skinny but I love that copper color.

High protein/low carb diet


Nice! They get that beautiful Bronze coming out of the upper Ashypoo and Combahee. My in laws down in beaufort are catching a few off the dock along with some nice crab. Shrimp are still small but starting to show up.

Nice Looking Red

In the Stono last night casting up near the grass I saw plenty of spooky shrimp and mullet. Menhadden are around too but between 8-10’ it seemed like.

I need to catch me a drag peeler soon… very nice!

This was Stienhatchee, Fl. Last week.


Coulda been the creek here.

I just got back from Weeki Wachee. The water was the same color outside the river. The river itself was crystal clear.
