Met up with Croaker Sunday morning and we floated the Savannah. Things started out kind of slow until the fog burned off.

Finally picked up a redeye on a sneaky pete...

Vultures on the rocks.... :o

Croaker on the rocks.... :o

Image

Finally got this guy about noon....fought like a freighttrain!....

Image

Had several nice fish hit..tug...jump...and then spit the fly :twisted: . Probably saw a half dozen in the 2 pound plus range....they seem to be doing better each year! :)

One of the small guys...

found him a nice hangout....

Fished the Congaree with Peter today...but that was a complete dud....I caught two brim...niether bigger than 3" ....other than that...not even a bump. :(
