Theo Bennigson and big Jacks

Had to find a Jack

Theo and his dad Brad had seen the jack movie at the film festival and had to go and catch one. Things didn’t start well for us. Looking around not seeing much and didn’t want to go into the river and and watch beat up fish spook from poppers Due to way too many people pounding them. I had been finding some groups outside even on the high tides. To my dismay they were not there. The boats starting falling out of savannah river so I knew they were not seeing much inside. Decided to make a run to some reds. Had a great time chasing them in super skinny water. Back to looking for a jack. After exhausting all locales that I know them to hang we were heading home. I told Theo I know one more hang out of theirs and what do ya know. They were there, happy and not pressured. Theo put the cast on them and that jack hit it like it insulted his mother. Theo had said this was the biggest fish of his life, after watch this young man fight this fish like he has done it a million times I was having a hard time believing he hadn’t man handled a couple big’ns prior. Lol. So happy he nailed it. Good on ya’s Theo. Glad I was part of this day.

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!!
