The mild winter and great fishing continues, until yesterday. We have been busting some serious butt all winter on the reds and the winds came up and up yesterday and made for less than perfect conditions. The fish are beginning to change a bit from the winter time eat anything you throw at them attitude. With boats working the schools all winter spring can get a bit tougher with the fish becoming a bit more educated. We should start seeing the cobia and triple tail soon, and this should be an early season with water temps climbing. I always welcome the spring and the migratory fish that make their way in, after nothing but reds all winter it’s a nice change of pace to throw at a 20lbs or bigger cobia or a nice triple tail floating along the surface. Can’t wait! And remember if your wanting to go Fly fishing in the area make sure your guide at least has a flats boat.

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!!
