Just as I was beginning to give up hope on the poon bam! They showed up in great numbers. Florida started to get a bit of upwelling from South west winds and had dropped the water temps down to the mid 70’s, this in turned made the fish push to us. We have had a consistent bite with jumping and landing more than a fish a trip. There have been 3 trips now that didn’t result in a poon, but out of 12 or 13 trips not bad odds. There have been some big Jacks in the mix as well and the reds have been busy tailing and on nice low tide days that have light winds the reds are bruising the baits up too.

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!!
