Smacked 'em

Report Date: October 3, 2019

Fished with Erin and Austen Dasher this morning out of Brays Island. Caught shrimp before the trip really easily. Had one cast with 75 shrimp. Perfect bait size to boot. Picked them up and ran to my first drop. Austen put a trout in the boat on the first cast, and it was nonstop for a bit. Caught trout, black drum, and redfish off the drop. I hit 3 more drops, and we caught fish off all of them, but only a couple at each drop. As the tide got up I moved to a trout drop, and it was on again. Ladyfish, jack crevalle, redfish and trout.. I switched Austen off live shrimp and had him throwing a Vudu shrimp under the cork, a silver flash with pink tail, and he caught some really pretty trout. We ended up with 43 fish for the morning, all released. Had 13 trout, 13 ladyfish, 11 redfish, 3 black drum, and 3 jacks. Lots of catching with some very nice folks.
