Had a fun couple of days on the water. Found a good group of tarpon on saturday am, but couldn’t get them to eat live or dead bait, so we moved on and caught some redfish. On Sunday, we had excellent sight fishing all day. The east winds put some clean water in the marsh and we got shot-after-shot at cruising redfish. We didn’t put as many in the boat was we would have liked on Sunday, but the fishing was terrific. Saw some groups of redfish tailing and crawling with backs ouf of the water and Andrew made a great cast after a little practice and put a big fish in the boat. Please click on the images to view them in full size.
I saw piles of small shrimp this week and the redfish and trout seem to really be focusing on them. Time to pull out your shrimp flies and lures. The DOA shrimp has always been effective for me when the fish are eating shrimp. Go to Pawleys Island Outdoors and pick some up.
Please be sure to stop by and check out Black Mingo Outfitters on Front St in Georgetown, SC. They are locally owned and have lots of cool fishing gear from Patagonia, Simms, Howler Bros, and more. We need more businesses like this in town so please support them when you have the chance. It would make a great place to buy birthday gifts for the fisher men/women in your life.
