Continuing education for my craft is to get outdoors and go fishing. The other day, I got a super treat of a fishing trip. Captain Jason Dubose out of Oldfield Plantation took a few of us Daufuskie misfits 20+ miles offshore to the Betsy Ross reef for a full day of fishing. This time of year is famous for port royal Cobia fishing and that is exactly what we did. My experiences fishing are mostly inshore so when I am on a boat, my knowledge of fishing needs improvement. Here enters the pro, Jason.
Captain Dubose had us on fish all day. We brought about 10 cobia to the boat and also hooked up to an Amberjack, two large Red Fish, and a nice sized Barracuda. We hooked a monster that I fought for about 25 minutes before it got bored and broke the line. Jason’s best guess was that we had a large shark on the hook. Well, we will never know for sure.
To keep this blog short, I want to simply say that if you are visiting Hilton Head, Bluffton, Beaufort, or Daufuskie and want to go offshore fishing, I highly recommend Jason Dubose. His knowledge of the waters made the trip informative and he never showed frustration when we let the big ones go due to lack of experience. For a day of fishing, I would have to score it a solid ten on a ten point scale.

OK, now the goat barn is 99% finished with “Goat Barn” sign in place. Looks great and the goats are feeling right at home. Both are pregnant and after the baby’s are born, goats milk will be abundant. Please call Pat Beichler to volunteer at the farm. Goat milking hands are needed! :-) Many thanks to all of the volunteers for their hard work in completing the new barn. Next up, the “Poulet Chalet” aka “chicken house” which is 70% complete.
In this brief blog, I would like to simply cast the following message, as a simple attempt to try and save time and spare anguish for so many fellow islanders:
Ask questions and do your own research before you get all worked up. Now kiss and make up.
Over the past eight years, a number of large businesses and corporations have commissioned private Iron Fish collections of their own. Custom colors, custom designed shapes, signatures, sizes and stamps for marking the sculptures are a few examples of different methods involved in making the order both unique and special.
We have created customized lines of fish designs for Gorton’s Seafood, Phizer, and RBC Real Estate to name a few. These sculptures are usually given out as employee or customer appreciation gifts. With the Gorton’s Seafood project, we stamped the company name as well as the specific years slogan, “Don’t Hope, Decide”, on to every fish sculpture created, which were then given to a number of employees at a year-end company retreat. They also commissioned four framed and mounted fish sculptures using reclaimed pine and incorporating a plaque in the frame that they could present to a valued customers. (more…)
