Long time customer Felton Jenkins and myself headed out with perfect conditions and happy fish yesterday. After hitting a few schools and catching a few we decide to head out and find something new, and that we did. We found about a mile long bank of reds willing to play the game. 8 fish later we decided to head it in. Can’t wait to get back out there and harass a few more. Be careful in hiring guides in the area, plenty claim they can take you fly fishing in their big bay boats. If you would like to sight cast reds make sure your with a guide that can get ya there. Most guides in the big boats are fishing the most beat up fish in the area. All day yesterday we saw one boat fishing, and he wasn’t even flats fishing this makes for very happy reds on the flats., This not Shelter Cove fishing with 7 boats around you.

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!!
