Acclimation.

Post by nogul » Sat Sep 20, 2014 10:18 am

[report]Been away for awhile, life got busy. For the first time in my life, I've moved away from the gulf coast. Prior to the move, I was fortunate enough to have some time off to enjoy the bounty of my ole stomping grounds.

Got to jump down to SW FL during the height of the poon push. What a shit show that place has become. The fish were so freaked out from all the dang boats and people dropping corks on their heads all day, we scrapped it and went exploring as far away from people as we could.

Moving sucks balls, but the new home base is incredibly cool. I found a gheenoe to fix up, and learning the lowcountry of Charleston and the MASSIVE tides has been very rewarding. The thirty plus fish days are a thing of the past, but there is something really really cool about catching redfish in the grass. It's incredibly visual, and such a different setting than I'm used to. But they're still redfish, and the learning curve hasn't been too steep. I'm committed here for 1 year, but my wife will likely never let me leave.

I'm really looking forward to fall in a new place, where every conversation doesn't revolve around the crimson tide. As I type this there is a definite chill in the air. I know there's a solid SC contingency here, would love to get know y'all. As fun as it is catching fish with the push pole between my legs, I'd much rather push someone around who can cast.

Great pics man. You summed up beach poon pretty damn well. I wish I could a fished it before it was like that. I'm now part of the problem a few times a year but much prefer trying to find the quiet bays with laid up fish here in the everglades.

Good luck in chucktown, if I could have found work there that's probably where we would be.

Ps. We need more pics of the jack

I enjoyed all of that... thanks!

Moving does suck... but you ended up in a wonderful spot.

Sweet shots! Looks like the move is treating you well.

How much for the wicker thingy? Less to move!

You'll like Chucktown, get with the boys, they will treat you right.

You're also in one of the hottest food destinations in the country right now. Don't be cheap and try some of the top places, you won't be sorry.

That rolling tarpon shot is money.
