    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?

    Thanks! My boat has four ribs so the picture is a little misleading. The front of the seat is in the middle of the boat. She is my "Best Buddy" not looking forward to her growing up. :cry:

    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. I have been in some big water this spring and a more stable boat would have been more comfortable but have never felt like I was going to flip. My next...

    I like the rabbit idea. I thought about doing that on mine but ran out of patience. I also like the inner rail for the tie off options it gives you. I made mine to fish out off so it comes in handy. Brian

    Bamboo paddle shaft?

    I have bought bamboo from this place They have a couple of varieties that look like your variegated one, might help you figure out what you have. Looks a lot like "Viridistriata"

    Lake Blackshear

    I took the "Outcast" out for a little fishing today. This was my first trip in a large lake, been fishing in small lakes/ponds. I had no problems but I sure was surprised when I paddled up to a BIG gator. I just keep moving and let him have his space. It was a slow day but I managed to catch a...

    Epoxy rash!

    While I was working on two boats at one time I was using a lot of epoxy. I had no problems for a while but one day I woke up and could barely open my eyes. My eyelids were on fire for about three days, and my fore arms had the same rash you describe. Every time I use it now I put on a long...
