Redfish Guys Finish 7th at Carolina Redfish Series Championship

by Lee Padrick, April 24, 2016

Dwayne and I had the honor of fishing the Carolina Redfish Series 2015 Championship, that was rescheduled until this spring because of a hurricane warning last fall.

Grundens, baby
We both had fished a lot in practice, and neither one of us had caught fish.

So, since the tournament was Winner-To-All, we decided to roll the dice and fish a place we had never fished before.  We checked out Saturday morning as Boat No. 6, and ran to our new spot.  I put the jackplate up and we drove into the spot on a rising tide like we had been there before.  When we came off plane, we were in 1' of water.  And apparently, we had just run across a mile of 1' water.  

We fished the area hard.  It was overcast and windy, but we made a bunch of casts, and there was no fish home.  

So, at 11:30 am, we decided to scramble.  First stop was a place I had caught some fish Easter Weekend, but nothing since.  And we caught nothing.

Our last stop was a creek where I had caught some rat reds on Easter Weekend.  We ended up catching 6 fish, and weighed a bag of 6.85 lbs, good enough for 7th place.

6.85 lbs, 7th place
Congrats to Rob Koraly/Jacob Knight for winning the event with 11 lbs.  And congrats to Mike Taylor/John Roberts for their Team of the Year award.

We want to thank Chasin' Tails, Crystal Coast Graphics, and Hook and Bones for putting on a great tournament.
