More cold and wind

willbur3That being said, we have had all the wind rain and cold weather one can ask for.  Stripers? No. Been looking with no luck.  With winds around 20mph and cold temps the reds have been eating.  The best thing about weather like this is,  no one on the flats, nevermind the water.  Will Abbott and I spent two mornings looking for stripers with no luck but found some reel happy reds.  Will is a trooper,  I think he has spent enough time in cold water and weather chasing trout in the mountains that 50 degree temps and being on a boat, things were great.  I received a call from Felton Jenkins on sunday wondering if there was a chance to get some fish,  I said it would be tough but ya never know till ya go.  Once agian  no boats and fish willing to eat.  Winds around 18mph gusting to 20 something.  We found a few lees from the wind and reds willing to play.  I don’t know what to make of the stripers,  Myself will be putting them on the back burnner till I hear of a good bite happening. 

Will, I'll fish anytime anywhere

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!!
