Surf fishing this weekend

Post  RknRusty on Sun Sep 20, 2015 10:45 pm

Hi all
i just got back from a weekend surf fishing expedition. We got all the good outta the day on Saturday. My fishing buddy Gary, lives in Surfside beach, SC, a couple of miles North up the Grand Strand from Murrells Inlet. That is a huge salt marsh with thousands of tidal channels. We went down to the South end of Garden City Beach, which ends where the North end of Murrells inlet opens up to the sea. If we'd been serious anglers we'd have gone to the mouth of the inlet and tried for some Spottail Bass, now known as Redfish, and correctly termed Red Drum. But we were up for a more relaxing day, so we just hit the surf at the South end of Garden City Beach...everything there is North and South.

We started with fresh eating quality shrimp, the best all around bait for all types of good-eating fish. I like eating them as much as catching them. We started off catching Pompano, a pretty scale-less fish that's a really meaty fine tasting panfish. The Florida boys and girls catch big ones, and might laugh at the pan size Pompano we get, but they're about the size of a nice Bluegill Bream from the fresh water. Nothing that swims in fresh water tastes as good as salt water fish. I haven't caught any Pompano since I was a kid. Lots of people confuse them with Jack Crevalle.

We had a better day Saturday than the whole damn two weeks in June when we fished every day. We had oddly warm water back then and mostly only caught a bunch of baby sharks and one or two puny Whiting.

So, that's the story of my weekend.
Rusty

Glad you had a good time Rusty. I miss fishin'.. haven't been for a long time. Last time was salt water though.. with my wife's brother and his wife's brother.. We were trolling in a 16' "Whaler" around a bay in Damariscotta, Maine. It was my first salt water fishing experience. The jigs we were using were made of silicone tube.. about 1/2" diameter and more than a foot long. (like a BIG rubber worm..) I was the only one of us to catch anything.. a fairly small "Striper".. IIRC.

As far as freshwater "pan-fish" goes.. when I was camping one Summer, my uncle (who was an avid fisherman) went out in his pram-boat at sunrise.. caught a bunch of perch and had them frying-up in a pan as us kids were waking up. It's been 40+ years.. and I can still recall how sweet and delicious they were!

Pompano is a table prize down here, not as big or plentiful as they once were though. Fishing

Yeah they are. I wish I'd brought them home now, I've got a craving going on. But I left all the fish with Gary.
