Report Date: October 29, 2020

My last treatment was two weeks ago today. Starting to heal up slowly but surely. The last few days had a hankering to get back on the water, so called my good friend Jim Goller. We were on the water about 9 and fishing the St Helena side out of Lucy Creek. Hit a few trout and I put a red in the boat on the first drop. Also had 2 big reds break me off on the shells. Went to our next drop and the trout bite was spectacular. Jim had live shrimp, and cork went down every cast. And they were the right fish. We released everything, and I ended up putting 20 in the boat, and Jim did that or more. I got a little tired and watched him catch them for a bit. We decided to call it a morning, and the dang motor would not run. We messed with it for a bit, then Jim called a friend, and he got in touch with a DHEC officer who was coming down the waterway from Edisto, and he showed up and towed us back to the hill! We always seem to have some kind of challenge when we fish together and today was no different. But it was wonderful to get back out on the water and catch a fish. Can't thank him enough.
