    Fishing in South Carolina

    Finally got my Pirogue down to Hunting Island for some fishing. Only managed a couple of trout the first day. I went out with Paddlin4reds and some of his gang for some Cobia fishing. This was a true test for the "outcast"! It did great but I had problems with my anchor trolley when the current...

    Is a Pirogue good for fishing?

    You bet! When I first started my Pirogue project I was unsure what to expect. I heard they were for skinny water only and were not very stable.

    New Reel

    Picked up an Abu Garcia Revo "Inshore" a few weeks ago. Played with it in the yard today and love it! Best casting bait-caster I have ever owned. If you are in the market for a new reel have a look at the Revo line 8) Brian

    Trolling mounts

    Hey all, I am building an Uncle Johns Pirogue with decks. I would like to add some trolling mounts but not sure where to put them. I was thinking of putting some flush mount rod holders on the deck behind the seat but not sure if that would be the best spot. Where do you guys normally put...

    Thank you!

    Just wanted to thank everyone for all the helpful tips in these forums and tell you a little about my build. I went on a fishing trip to Hunting Island South Carolina in Nov. While doing some research on fishing in the area I came across a kayak forum. Turned out there was a kayak fishing...
