It's been two years since my last trip down south.
I just got home from South Carolina last night.
I was there for 11 days fishing drinking and hunting with my friend and his family.
And a few others.
As always we got lots of fish.
And my friends son shot a doe .
We cooked a pig.
Ok enough talking.
Let's see a few pictures.

Ok I'm back .
Here is a few pictures of the day we cooked the pig.
It takes all night we start the process at about 19:00 and take it off at 07:00.
But we also drink and have a all night party.
Because someone has to keep it at temp.
Keep adding hot coals to the fire .
12 hours cooking at 225 degrees.MVIMG_20191101_202439.jpgMVIMG_20191101_203131.jpgMVIMG_20191101_203311.jpgMVIMG_20191101_205203.jpgMVIMG_20191101_205217.jpgMVIMG_20191101_205231.jpgMVIMG_20191101_205231.jpgMVIMG_20191102_010814.jpgMVIMG_20191102_045420.jpg

Ok we fished almost every day.
Except for the day we had the dinner party and Sunday.
We went to church.
The day after our pig party we take almost all the left over food to church.
Lol we have enough to feed everyone.

Then on Tuesday morning my friend's son shot a doe.
Accully a good size for for South Carolina.
Lol he was waiting for a buck .
But we had limited time and he had limited time.
So on the last day he took the biggest doe.
One shot.
From about 80 yards.
Backed her in ice .
Then we got to work later.

I hate South Carolina with a deep, personal passion. But I miss pig roasts! It's hard to tell from the pics - was the cheek meat still on there?
Oh yeah had full head on it.
It was around 125 lbs.

I spent a year in the NW part of N Carolina in 1977. It was different. They all said I had a S Calif accent... weird! But yah, the fishing and the lifestyle were great!! Long driveways leading to family homes where multiple generations had lived. They got together on weekends and I would see them on the lawns with several picnic tables. Was invited to a few... funny to sit there among 7 or 8 white men and not able to understand a word they said!!!

Bought my first bass fishing level wind there. Fished the Pasquotank River for largemouth bass, bluegill, and stripers. Went to the coast and caught Bluefish.

In that area in late 1970s, black folks still rode in the back of the bus, no liquor available unless you brought your own, and everything, I mean everything was closed on Sunday. TV only had 4 stations and they were all Hee Haw, all the time! :D
