Red fish, also called red drum or channel bass, are prevalent across the South Carolina coast.
My brother, Dawson, my father, Cooper, and I took a weekend to visit the mountains of South Carolina in early April to go fly fishing for trout.
I did not start turkey hunting until I was in college, and quickly realized that shooting a turkey is not as easy as it appears to be on TV.
I went to Charleston for the weekend to visit the South Eastern Wildlife Expo and stayed with Bo Hutchison (a friend from the Citadel) at his apartment. Bo and his roommate had caught a load of oysters and shrimp which we were planning on cooking Friday night. As we stood around the table cracking oyster shells, Bo asked if I would like to try shad fishing with him in the morning, and fishing is one thing I just can’t turn down.
My college roommate invited me to Winnsboro to hunt for the weekend. We spent Friday night at his cabin before the hunt. The cabin is literally a log cabin on a hill overlooking Lake Monticello with a walk-around deck and an outside fireplace.
After reading William Walker’s book, “Down the Little Pee Dee,” Ryan Stephens, my brother, Dawson Jordan, and I decided that we should explore the headwaters of the Little Pee Dee River.
True sportsmen only shoot ducks when they are in flight. The most common time to go duck hunting is in the early morning when they fly for a 15-20 minute window before sunrise. The birds wake up at the roost and fly to a place where they can find food and other ducks.
This past weekend, my brother, Dawson, and I learned how to fish for striped bass. I had never been fishing on Lake Santee and was looking forward to trying something new.
Thanksgiving week has come and gone, and with it, the first split of duck season. Duck season runs from Thanksgiving week in November until the end of January, giving an excuse for many to wake up at five in the morning and navigate the river to their favorite spot.
