Will, Brent Watts and myself decided to chase some chilly weather reds and were not disappointed. Every Time I get the chance to fish with Will I always know a good times are going to be had. We decided to head out to Wassaw sound and see how many reds made t through the fall onslaught. First couple of places didn’t show much but we did manage to find a nice school of res in clear water that were excited to see us. Havn’t heard much on the stripers, I will go as soon as the tides come back down. With high water and plenty of fresh water coming down river the clarity has not been to good. Hopefully these conditions will subside and provide us with some good striper action. Still getting more reports of dead trout from the cold, 2 winters in a row now. With the trout declining this will only put more pressure on our reds. Food for tought. With the trout, yellowtail and pinfish dying off in the cold there are not a s many predators on juvenile reds. This is what may have made a the increase in the reds we saw last fall. Now what do we do if we start having mild winters again and the predators are back in full swing? will this show a decrease in reds?

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!!
