Secret spots are nothing new. For thousands of years, men have been secretive about their favorite places to fish, hunt, mine gold, collect fruits and hundreds of other things. It’s understandable: There’s only so much “stuff” out there, and someone who’s lucky enough to stumble across a place where there’s a good amount to be found wants to ensure there’s plenty for himself and those for whom he is responsible.

That said, there pretty much are no secret spots in Charlotte Harbor. No matter how far you go up into the backcountry, no matter how small your creek or chunk of bottom debris may be, there’s someone else who knows it and fishes it. But even though no place is secret, when and how to fish many of those particular spots is something known only to a few.
