Redfish Guys Finish in 7th Place at 2016 Carolina Redfish Series #1

by Lee Padrick, June 6, 2016

Dwayne and I had the opportunity to fish the Carolina Redfish Series Event #1 on June 4, 2016, held at Chasin' Tails Outdoors in Atlantic Beach.

We checked out as Boat #22 in the 24-boat field at 5:45 AM.  Our gameplan included about 10 different spots where we had caught fish in practice, so we were in run-and-gun mode all day.

Our first stop yielded 5 fish, and we had about 8 lbs total weight in the livewell.  We hit 3 more spots, and caught no fish.  

Our next stop gave up 2 fish, both upgrades, so we knew we had about 9 lbs.  Stopped at 2 more spots, caught nothing, then made a run to a place where I had caught a perfect fish the day before in practice.  

The new moon low tide pulled all the water out of the marshes in the afternoon, and the fish we were looking for were obviously pressured, so we would find the school, pull a fish out, and they would disappear again.  Caught 4 fish at this spot, but couldn't find any upgrades, so we headed back for the 3 PM weigh in.

Ended up in 7th place with 9.5 lbs.

We caught 11 fish over the course of the day, the weather was nice and hot (like summertime should be), and it was an enjoyable day on the water.

Congrats to Jonathan Garrett and Matt Littleton for winning the event with 12.8 lbs.  

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