downtown Charleston

The wind really kicked up and made flyfishing unpleasant so switched over to the spinning rod. *Got this guy about a minute later. *We saw so many fish and missed so many shots at them due to wind...oh well that's what we went down there for. *If I had caught this fish on a fly I would have jumped out of the boat. *I actually had one come right to my fly before the wind started whipping. *Tipped down on it and I was sure he had it but alas it was not to be. *We spooked a ton of them. *I am sure that we saw over a 1000 reds in the day and a half we were actually on the water (the wind pushed us all over them)... and that is with barely a cursory kowledge of where to look for them. *Pretty impressive fishery down there. *

Really cool place. *We stayed in Mt Pleasant. *There is a boat ramp at a
place called Remley's Pt (sic) and motels, restaurants and even a
Starbuck's all within a mile or so of the ramp. *Very convenient to
downtown Charleston so the non-fishing member of your party can go
hang out down there while you are out fishing.
