The winds seem to have been the biggest problem for the month of Dec. That being said we have been managing some good days and have had some tough ones. One tough day ended with one red on the fly, not a fun north wind, so I told my guy this grass bed ahead sometimes can hold a good number of specks. Off to the races! we caught trout after trout for 4 hours using white doa shrimps. I have found a few stripers since last time I posted but not enough to say it’s on. As a matter of fact I would say our striper fishery officially sucks this year as well as the past few years. When the winds and tide are good the sight casting to the reds has been good. Clear water this time of year really makes it a great time for stalking these fish.

I have been fishing the Georgia and South Carolina Coast for 30 years and guiding full time for 20 plus years. What you will get from me is a quality fishing trip, whether with fly rod or spinning tackle that is always a long time on the water for the rate. My half days run more like 5-6 hours and full days are over 8 hours. 4 hours on a half day just isn't long enough to fish. What you will not get from me is a quick trip to spots 5 minutes away that are fished heavily so can make it back to the dock in time for my next trip. I have guided through out the southeast as well as Alaska and the Bahamas. I have been instrumental in developing shallow water sight casting in Georgia and South Carolina and have been the first to introduce Tarpon fishing on fly rod to South Carolina and Georgia!!
