Dwayne and I competed in the Hook and Bones Redfish Open in Swansboro yesterday. For 8 years, we’ve been trying to get our name on this trophy. For 8 years, we’ve failed.
Picked No. 15 and left Swansboro at safe light. Stopped off at our first stop, put a 3.5 lber in the boat, then hit our second spot. Caught 4 more, ranging from 7” to 32”. Upgraded our fish here, and spent low tide looking for fish we had seen in practice. Didn’t catch any more fish after 9:30 am.
Congrats to Jason Dail and Allen Jernigan for the win! We finished in 9th place with 9.76 lbs, one spot out of the money. Thanks to John Moore, Hook and Bones, the Town of Swansboro, and all the volunteers for putting on a great event. We’ll be back next year, and I’ll be posting that for the 9th year, we lost the Hook and Bones.
Thanks to Hook and Bones, Brazda Marine, Tsunami rods and reels, Bimini Baits, Fins Superbraids, Power Pole, PointClickFish.com, Shallow Sport Boats, and Buccaneer Baits for all their support.
I’m going old drum fishing for the foreseeable future. - Lee
P.S. I had the stationary camera on the boat set for "Photo" instead of "Video", so if anyone needs it, I have over 10,000 still shots of the thunderstorm during the weigh-in 😳😁 ... See moreSee less
