Well the poon have showed up in good numbers but some days ya just can’t get an eat. When that happens it’s nice to stumble into a big school of 30lbs jacks. Than you can always go back to Poon. It has really been tough to even go after reds with all the big fish in the area. By now everyone knows how great the red fishing is at cane patch, behind Ossabaw. On my way there I found a huge school of jacks willing to bust some flies. PLenty of folks think you can only fish the patch wit a yack, any flats boat will do, there are plenty of fish in the 1-2ft water depth. Don’t forget the first week of Nov is the best for the patch, but we had some great days there this summer.
On my way to Cane Patch and what did I find?

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!!
