Successful Marsh Recon 3-20-12

Picked up Nick, Whitt, and Chad earlier this week and hit the hallowed fishing grounds of the Hampton. These guys have fished all over the southeast and have decided to bring their 22 ft fishing machine to the Golden Isles, and call it their home port.  We were out for a little recon of the area, to pretty much get the lay of the land.  We started off with plastics and live shrimp under the corks, and got into some trout pretty quick.  A lot of short trout, but trout are showing up finally!  Then we headed into the skinny, and the redfish were home.  This is where the whole meaning of negative lows comes into play. We decided to get out, before staying in with the reds for the next 4 hours.  Hard to leave them biting, but we had other fish to fry…specifically whiting.  Out to the sloughs in the sound and the bite was on. The sharks have found their way back home as well.  Some fat whiting later (many with roe), some healthy bonnetheads, and one mega ray that got our hopes up, we headed back to the dock.  These guys were a blast to fish with, and were masters at some good natured ribbing (I will be using some of that material btw).  I know I’ve said it before, but I don’t think there is another group of people that loves life more than the fisherman.  Thanks guys for another great day on the marsh!
