I've heard it said that some people have salt water in their veins and I truly believe that's true, my wife might even tell you that I have pluff mud for a brain. Truth be told I've never lived more than 15 minutes from some body of water. Even in college my only requirement for choosing a school was that I could get to a beach within that same 15 minutes. As a bonus my schools mascot was a chambered nautilus (A Seashell). I guess that why we never had a football team,,,,go seashells!
My dad taught me how to catch, clean and cook blue crab , fillet spot tail bass(redfish for the rest of the world),and the right way to hold and throw a cast net. He showed me how to spot the Rips, the breaks in sandbars and told me why fish gathered there. These are but a few of the things that I have tried to pass along to my son. All these things you grow to love, but what you gain is a respect and love for the South Carolina lowcountry.
