Met up with Don this morning to fish the shoals on the Savannah in hopes of another good day....we got on the water around 9:30 and it proved quickly that it was not gonna be another stellar day....I think it took about an hour before Don finally got the skunk off....

Image

Image

I think he got a few more before I finally shook the monkey....

Image

I think all the fish were caught on small poppers.....though I did try a few streamers and bigger poppers and crease flies...which is probably why Don outfished me about 3 to 1.....he stayed with the tried and true.
Caught a few colorful brim too......

Image

There fer a while I moved off and lost track of Don...but once I saw the buzzards circling....I knew right where he was... :lol:

Image

he was fine...just moved over to another area to catch some of the "second hand smoke" :shock:

Image

He continued to catch a few more fish....while I just continued to stumble around taking the occasional dunk.

Image

Thats why I like to fish with those young guys like Josh...No offense to Croaker or Billres or any of the other good folks on the board....but being nearly twice Josh's age ...at least with him I got a good excuse and can say "hey ....wait'll ya get my age...you'll be fallin too"

I tried to stay with it until I looked over at Croaker and he looked how I felt......

Image

Yup....time to call it a day!

Don....I had a good time and I appreciate ya comin up....wish we coulda done a little better....but like we talked about....sometimes ya gotta put in several bad days to finally get that really good day.....so maybe when Bill gets everything settled ...we can triple team em' :D

Thanks again for a good day of fishin'!

Sounds like ya'll had fun. If you are going to fish in clear water, Tom, you are going to have to wear camoflage. We short suckers don't have to worry about it. :D

Was another good day on a river...

The fishin' was great from the start...
The catchin' was spotty as was the wading.
There be some eel shit slick rocks and unexpected holes
in them shoals.

The skunk breaker. Redeye Bass.

Image

A few more Redyes, 1 LM and some small Redbreast and 1 Bluegill
got stuck in the lip.

Image

Image

Image

Tom with one on the other side of the second hand smoke hole.

Image

Pretty water.

Image

Was nice of Tom to be my mobile depth finder...
When he got much over waist deep I knew to find a shallower route ;)

We got out just in front of a sure 'nuff frog strangler...
Took me 40 minutes to get through Augusta :shock:

Ain't Life Grand!!!

Yup...and when I would trip and break my azz....Don knew it was time to stop watchin' the bikinis and watch where he was walkin :shock:

That was some rough rain.....then I was motoring up I-20 at a full 40 MPH and Phil must have been nearby cause I heard a loud "POW" and a flash of white light followed by a huge red fireball and a shower of sparks that came over my car....lightning hit a tree right on the side of the road directly beside me...I figure I could'nt have been more than 30-40 ft from it!

I hope I did'nt mis-state myself....anytime spent on pretty water with a good friend is a great way to spend the day....regardless of the catchin'

Don- better tie a cord around that depth finder... a good breeze would knock him 200 yards down river... then you'd be in a mess.... :D

Glad ya'll had a good trip.....

Tom, I just found out that the red eye bass are hybridizing with small mouths in that area. Kinda neat, don't you think. :lol:
