Since I was running the tournament I really did not have time to take many photos. I asked my friend and neighbor Josh if he could do me a favor. I asked him to come help with the tournament and shoot some photos. He was more happy to be there at 6am and then again at 3pm. I owe you one Josh!
Josh shoots mainly Canon gear but I won’t hold that against him.
I think he did a great job of capturing the emotions and feel of the tournament. Thanks again buddy!
After several days of low pressure and high winds, we finally got a real taste of spring yesterday. Air temps in the 70′s, light winds, and sunny skies – oh yeah! Once the morning fog lifted, the fish decided to put on a show. We saw something yesterday that I haven’t seen in our marshes since November – a group of 30 big reds tailing happily in the mud! They were completely unaware of our presence. I wanted to grab my camera, but opted for a fly rod instead. Once cast and the water exploded – a hammer of a fish broke away and inhaled the fly! After a long, cold winter it looks like things are starting to get back to normal in the Carolina marshes. Can’t wait for summer and for our seasonal visitors to begin arriving in the creeks, bays, and ocean.
