Lake Hunting For Mallards

n the blink of an eye, the sportsmen dropped the fishing rods and took up the shotgun. Duck season was to open on the Saturday before Thanksgiving and whether or not they had been scouting, hunter’s would fill South Carolina’s swamps, lakes, and rivers in the morning to come.

Stripers On The Move

Since our first striper fishing expedition launched back in December ’15, we have seldom encountered schooling striper on Lake Moultrie.

To The Coast

The 4-Runner was stuffed with a week’s supply of gear and only the dog had space to relax.

Fly Fishing For Arctic Grayling In Interior Alaska

Since my college friend Andrew Case made his move to Alaska with the Army, we had been in discussion about making a trip to visit and see the last frontier.

Whitewater Fishing

While the striper remained in the cold water of the Saluda River for spawning, Dawson Jordan, Ryan Stephens, and I planned a mounted canoe trip to test our luck against the fish.

The Southern Salmon

After hearing reports of striper action on the Wateree River, Dawson Jordan and I wasted no time in planning a trip to catch some.

First Billfish

Several years ago when we had our offshore fishing boat, Cooper Jordan, Thomas Jordan, Dawson Jordan, Ryan Stephens, and I planned a trip to Georgetown to fish in the Gulf Stream.

Chasing Red Drum In The Delta

I haven’t launched the skiff in Georgetown since the fall and was glad to be back in the East’s most remote section of coastline.

Paddling On Ice

This winter brought bitter cold weather to Dillon County. The weather was a frequent topic of complaint except from the duck hunters.
