Good gosh it’s been hot but the water provide some relief, especially when the fish are chewing. There has been a great triple tail bite going on around the Hell’s Gate area, just hit all the range markers and channel markers using bait or artificials. The reds are biting good on all tides but the early morning bite seems to be the best before the heat sets in. Been on some big tarpon as well, getting the bite has proven to be the tough part. That fish will drive you nuts! Jacks are showing themselves here and there, but it seem you have to be at the right place at the right time.

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!!
