Early Season Slams 3-2-12

Had a great day on the water with some great folks from the Tarheel state.  Billy, his wife Sheila, and their future Bassmaster son, Jonathon headed out early armed with artificials, mud minnows, and frisky shrimp.  Jonathon was really impressive with his casting skills, as we picked our way thru some docks. Trout were the first species to show up, but the bite tapered off as quickly as it started.  Jonathon then shot a dock for a nice flattie to get 2/3’s of the slam completed.  It was here we ran into a wall, checking several skinny creeks for the reds.  On our last stop we hit pay dirt.  It was a fairly tight spot surrounded by oysters that required some pretty precise placement, and even more tact to yank them out of the shells.  We lost a few, got a few nice ones, and even managed to find flounder here as well.  While the bite was hard to find, and it took a lot of running and gunning, it was pretty rewarding to end up with some nice fish and a couple of slams. A special thanks to Billy and his fine family for grinding out a tough bite on the marsh today.  Jonathan definitely earned his stripes today, piloting the Scout back to port. You guys are gonna have a reel problem keeping a reel out of Jonathon’s hands! The kid’s a natural!
