Posting on our last night on Edisto Island S.C.
Ron has done our forum a service by enlarging the scope of glass fishing to include a new spinning gear discussion, so- by way of thanks - here we go.
Autumn salt fishing with glass gear is "da bomb" whether offshore, on the flats, or hangin in the creeks and lagoons.
I fish vintage glass spinning rods and period reels- period. This week a Heddon 2 pc with a Mitchell Garcia 301, 6# and No's 2 and 1/0 circles, weighted, live bait, no bobbers. The fish either wants it or it doesn't, no messing around. Here's the rig
This was an easy trip with no big fish but lots of fun.
We started the week with our high school senior daughter's visit to The College of Charleston. I got a laugh during the presenter's Q&A by asking if parents could get special dispensation due to losing their child's college fund in the last two week's market crash. Not so funny, but what can you do ...
Mom & daughter walking towards "the cistern," which at one time was the municipal water source for "Charlestown." The 1700's building was featured in films including The Patriot and Cold Mountain. The College (a state university, not a private institution) is one of a handfull that predates the Constitution.
OK- let's fish
A little croaker caught on live mummichog (mud minnow)
Our daughter fishes glass, too
Redfish went crazy just before high tides
My "new" vintage Heddon Viscount Deluxe acquired a month ago is a wonderful two-hander casting with serious authority against the wind but soft on the uptake (gotta stick it to the graphite crowd)
Sometimes you mail the bait- and it's returned marked "Gotcha ... "
Cameron, here's your food shot (flounder, Charleston Marina)
Anyway, this is Edisto
Have a great Fall, Y'all
