2016 Oyster Planting

Oyster Planting 2016

Thanks to all who braved the heat to participate in our annual oyster planting in the Ashley River. This is such a worthy cause that will improve our fishery and waterway.  A special thanks to our partners at South Carolina DNR.  Since Dave Fladd launched this initiative within our club 5 years ago, we witnessed significant growth on all of the sections of shells we put down, Check out this video that Dave shot https://vimeo.com/176894321?ref .  Thanks Dave!  We can’t wait to do it again next year.

Be Safe,

Ray Philyaw
