Seems as though I haven’t spent the night at home in a month, but duty calls and I have to go fishing, wherever it may be.(Stop the whinning right)Started off fishing with long time customer Tommy Webster. What we thought may be a tough day turned out to be awesome. The weather was perfect but it didin’t look as though the tide was gonna fill in enough. What little water we had began to flood and we began to hear reds playing in the pools ahead. If it wasn’t for Hell’s Bay boats that all we would have done is listen. With the water being to muddy to wade we were able to pole in and get the shots we wanted. The next day it was off to St. Simons for the Redbone tourn. Three days of great weather and decent fishing. (yours truly won the fly fishing division).. After poling on a particular flat we noticed some wakes outside in the channel. What do ya know large schools of large Jacks everywhere!! We took some time off the flats and pulled the big rod out and the largest popper I had, and the fights had began. CAl Collier Dave Collier and Cal’s son Will began a game of tug of war with these beasts. After 3 fish they were cooked on the jacks and ready for something a bit smaller to bully around. Stay tuned to ESPN in the spring and they should have some great action with the jacks and reds from my boat during the tournament. After St. Simons it was onward to HiltonHead and meet up with the mother ship and begin harrasing some reds in Carolina. The fishing had it’s good moements and it’s tough moments but all in all a good trip. Thanks Go out to Billy Kehoe Joe Kehoe and Bill Johnson for a great couple of days.

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!!
