No more storms! I was reading the National Hurricanes center storm predictions and they were saying average tropical storm season. Can’t say I have seen 2 storms before the season even really begins. Being said fish have to eat and so we feed them. Using light spinning gear we have been finding some decent numbers of trout and reds. The trout have been coming in all sizes. It’s nice to have good numbers of trout around again. some of the reds have boats built into them, making the fish so spooky you can hardly catch them. Trout on the other hand don’t seem to care they just want to eat. With the winds of late the fly rods have been stored and I don’t have much to report, but as soon as the winds slack you can bet I will be looking for some tarpon and Jacks!! There are a few tarpon showing along the coast and this is not a bait scene anymore fly rod, or spinning gear using artificials will get the eat.

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!!
