All Artificial, All The Time...

St Simons Inshore Slam
Most of you probably know I love to fish the marsh with artificials, and with trips Tues thru Sat this week, that was the plan. The best bite this week was on Wed with Danny and his son Darren. The beginning of the northeaster had just starting showing, so we power fished with lip divers most of the day with a few plastics thrown in as well. The bite was pretty good, although we had to fish many areas to find fish. We ran the whole gammit from shallow to deep, incuding rocks, docks, grass and shell. As the day unfolded it was apparent that the bomber long a was providing the best bite. Danny and Darren both ended up with nice trout with one 19" and a nice 21" speck as well. Darren provided the highlight of the day completing his slam with a nice flounder on the lip diver...go figure?! Not really sure what was in the box when we returned, I was suprised to see 15 nice keepers in the box! Along with some throw backs, it turned out to be a great day with artificials. Danny and Darren, I had a blast, and look forward to seeing you guys soon. As far as all artificial all the time, for me I love to fish with bait too, but it is kinda fun just to chunk and wind and feel that fish when he whacks that lure!
