Rode along with Capt. Mike Able the other day to take pics of shallow-water redfishing and Haddrell’s new logo (designed by Brian Carroll of Marine Marketing Group).
Mike took us on a nice ride through the flats! Check out the video.
Joey Holleman of The State newspaper wrote a very nice piece on the damage caused by feral pigs in South Carolina and the crack down on illegal transportation of wild hogs. My favorite line from the article, one that would raise eyebrows among many of the Lowcountry hunters I know, is:
If there are 100 wild hogs on a tract of land, hunters would need to kill 80 of them each year to keep the population from growing, according to one study.
Saw this bear story in the P&C and wondered how the coastal bear season is going. Will have to check with DNR….
I’ve caught tons of redfish on spinning gear over the years, and back in the day I caught plenty of rainbow trout and brookies on the fly. But until last week, I’d never actually caught a redfish on a fly rod. Of course, in the time it took me to cast to, hook, fight and then land this fish my buddy had already caught and released four or five with spinning gear.
We recently published an in-depth guide to Lowcountry duck hunting in the latest edition of Tideline magazine. Whether you’re hunting on foot, in a boat or on your fancy-pants plantation, we’ve got you covered. Check it out.
