LKA Hunting Island Meet and Greet

The 2016 September Meet & Greet, plus HOW Event, was held at Hunting Island State Park, a 5000 acre semi-tropical barrier island offering one of the largest public beaches in the Lowcountry, located just outside Beaufort, SC. This park truly is a hidden slice of paradise offering amazing hiking, fishing and camping facilities about hours drive from Charleston, SC. 

The LKA crew launched from the lagoon located behind the sand dunes with the ocean directly on the other side. It was very relaxing catching bait and fishing while listening to the sound of the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean in background. 

Special Thanks to Lewis Brownlee again for grilling up some dogs and providing nice cold drinks that always hit the spot after a fun day of yak fishing.

August Angler of the Month

The Lowcountry Kayak Anglers wishes to recognize our Angler of the Month for August 2016:  Jim Morrissey of Goose Creek.

Sunfish was the August target species, and Jim won first place for the month by catching a big 11.5" shellcracker.  By winning the month, Jim takes home a $20 gift certificate to The Charleston Angler.

Jim was fishing the Goose Creek Reservoir, and caught the big one on a green beetlespin.  He reported that he went through a number of smaller fish before the big one finally hit in deeper water.

4.   Zebediah Goldston
5.   Sam Quick
