After a crash course on freshwater fishing techniques and how to use a variety of lures the night before over a few too many beers, my buddy Chris and I got the boat loaded up, hitched up and headed out by 6:15am. We were armed with ultra lights, fly rods, catfishing poles, and a few bass rods each. We were going to catch something dammit.
Our launch destination was Freeport Landing which was once a very hopping riverboat port in its prime. As you drive from the saltwater landing towards the headwaters you can visually see the salinity change before your eyes. Saltmarsh fades to cattails and Bald Cypress. Its really cool especially if you have never seen that transition before. After a 15 minute boat ride we arrive at the entrance of Dragon's Run.
All and all a great day on the water, alot of action, and a memorable first trip for my friend as well.
