October Angler of the Month

The Lowcountry Kayak Anglers wishes to recognize our Angler of the Month for October 2016: Darrell Olson of Charleston, SC.

The October target species was Black Drum, and this proved to be a difficult species.  Darrell caught a nice 19.25" fish to secure first place, and takes home a $20 gift certificate to Time Out Sports in Mount Pleasant.

Darrell reports that he caught this one while fishing around a submerged barge.  Black drum had eluded him in previous tries throughout the month but he finally caught one and stuck with it until he got the biggest one.

Only ten anglers submitted Black Drum for the month- here is the finishing order:

1. Darrell Olson
2. Dave Jaskiewicz
3. Collin Yoder
4. Sarah Billig
5. Josh Yeater
6. Troy Garrison
7. Trey Carden
8. Jaime Vega
9. Josh Swain
10. Chad Quick

Congratulations to all anglers!
