Heroes on the Water Event at Limehouse Boat Landing

The Lowcountry Kayak Anglers Meet & Greet + "Heroes On The Water" event was held this past Sunday May 22, 2016 at Limehouse Boat Landing on Johns Island SC. We had a great turnout of Veterans and Anglers along with perfect weather to enjoy a great day of fishing. No reports of Redfish but plenty of reports of Flounder and Trout were caught that day.  Thanks again for Lewis Brownlee for cooking up some dogs for everyone to enjoy.  Thanks to all our LKA members and our volunteers who came out to support the Lowcountry SC Chapter of HOW.

LKA and Charleston Sail and Power Squadron Floatilla

On Sunday March 15th, LKA joined the Charleston Sail and Power Squadron for a special four mile paddle cruise down Bohicket Creek to Reds Ice House for a nice seafood lunch. It was great meeting the Charleston Sail and Power Squadron and wanted to thank Glenda and Jeff for putting this event together. Hopefully we can get together for more events like this one in the future.

April Angler of the Month

The Lowcountry Kayak Anglers wishes to recognize our April 2016 Angler of the Month: William Swain of Goose Creek.

One of the changes for the 2016 club year was to award a prize to the angler with the largest fish of each month of the "Angler of the Year" competition.  April's target-species for AOY was the speckled sea trout - and William secured first place for the month with a nice 22" fish.  He takes home a $20 gift certificate to the Charleston Angler and the maximum 200-points towards AOY.

The winning fish came out of the Wando River - William was out with his father and fellow club member Joshua - and the fish hit early in the morning trip.  The trout fell for a mud minnow under a cork.  He said he almost lost it at the kayak during the retrieve!

William and his dad have a side-bet going on: whoever places highest each month the most wins a rod & reel from the loser.  We'll have to keep an eye on this competition as well as the overall standings.

Here is how the top ten rounded-out, with the sizes of fish caught and points awarded.  In cases of ties, the earliest fish submitted won.  As you can see we had a few ties between 1st-6th place:

1. William Swain 22.00" 200pts
2. Jared Dolan 22.00" 199pts
3. Dave Jaskiewicz 20.50" 198pts
4. Jim Morrissey 20.50" 197pts
5. Josh Yeater 19.75" 196pts
6. Kent Honea 19.75" 195pts
7. Lewis G. Brownlee 19.50" 194pts
8. Frank Stiver 19.00" 193pts
9. Mike Kachman 18.50" 192pts
10. Greg Bartle 17.00' 191pts
