Georgetown, Pawleys Island and Debordieu Fishing Charters Report – Summer 2016

It’s been a great Summer in the salt marsh. The weather has been beautiful and the redfish and flounder bite have been as good as ever. We’ve been catching redfish in the shallow water around Georgetown on gulp bait, topwater lures, fly tackle, and on live baits. The trout bite is firing-up now and the best season for fly fishing for reds is upon us. Can’t wait to see what the fall season has in store. Call any time if you’d like to book a trip or talk about fishing charter options around Pawleys, Georgetown, and McClellanville.

Tight lines,

Capt. Jay Nelson

Early Spring Fishing Report – Debordieu, Pawleys Island, & Georgetown

Early spring has gotten off to a great start in the marshes. Georgetown and Pawleys have experienced unseasonably warm weather and the fish have been biting fairly well during what is historically a difficult time of year to fish. The fly fishermen have had luck on shrimp and crab patterns while the bait fishermen have been throwing live minnows on jig-heads. We’ve also been spending some time in the freshwater, deep in the cypress, chasing largemouth bass. If you are planning a vacation in the Pawleys Island, Debordieu, or Georgetown areas, make sure to call ahead to plan a day on the water. Tight lines, anglers!

Winter Fishing Report from Debordieu, Pawleys Island, and Georgetown, SC

Here’s a collection of some of my Lowcountry winter fishing photos from the Debordieu, Pawleys Island, and Georgetown, SC marshes. Winter is a great time to get out for redfishing, bird watching, and oystering. Thanks for stopping by and best wishes in 2016 from Winyah Guide Service.

Fly Fishing Georgetown & Debordieu Winter 2015

The fly fishing in Georgetown and Debordieu has been great as we close out the 2015 season. Higher-than-normal air temperatures have kept the waters warm and the redfish and sea trout are happy! The start of the 2016 season should be better than average due to these warmer temperatures. The marsh is a beautiful place in the winter months, allowing for  some great clamming, oystering, and birding when you are tired of catching fish. If you have an interest in harvesting some oysters during your winter fishing trip, just let us know ahead of time.

Early Winter Report – Debordieu Fishing – Fly Fishing & Inshore Fishing Charters in Georgetown

The fishing was dynamite this week! Every day of Thanksgiving week offered-up great weather, unseasonably warm temperatures, and excellent fishing around Debordieu and Georgetown. The redfish were cruising in small schools and were eager to take flies, artificials, and live bait. After a discouraging flood event in Georgetown, it was good to get out and finally start catching double digits of redfish every trip this week. The water temperatures are still warm enough to offer solid fishing conditions through Christmas. I’m really excited about the months ahead.

Tailing Redfish & Marsh Hens – Cast & Blast – Fall 2015 Report – Debordieu & Georgetown, SC

This fall got off to an excellent start with some great tailing tides and early marsh hen hunts. The fishing was basically as good as fishing gets. Unfortunately, our region experienced an unprecedented flood in October that caused devastation to some of our coastal and riverside communities. As the communities began to rebuild, the rivers continued to pump dirty/fresh water into our estuaries. As a result, many fly trips were postponed or cancelled. However, things are now starting to look up and the fishing is improving and the waters are starting to clean up. We’ve had a steady bite on the bull reds and the weather has been beautiful. We are looking forward to some excellent fishing trips throughout the fall and winter. See you on the water!

Tarpon & Redfish – Georgetown, Debordieu, & Pawleys Island Fishing Report – August 2015

Every angler loves this time of year. You can catch almost everything that swims in August. The shrimp are stacking up in the creeks and bays and the inshore fish are capitalizing on the abundance of bait. The redfish and flounder bite is great right now, but most guys I know are really trying to catch tarpon while they are around. Yep, August and September are the best months to test your luck with the silver king! There’s plenty of fish around, but getting a bite some preparation and dedication. Hope you all get a shot at a big silver one this year! Stay tuned…

Here’s some shots I got of Capt Newman and Dale during the Lowcountry Tarpon Tournament. Congrats on the win, boys!

Debordieu & Georgetown, SC Fishing is Hot – July 2015

Seriously…it’s hot. We’ve had a record number of 100 degree days this month, but the fishing remains consistent for big reds, flounder, and trout around Debordieu, Pawleys Island, and Georgetown, SC. The tarpon have also started to trickle in to the rivers and estuaries. Thanks for visiting my blog and stay tuned for tarpon updates over the next couple of months. Also, please visit www.lowcountrytarpon.com for information about Georgetown’s upcoming annual tarpon tournament August 13th-15th. The banquet on the 15th is open to the public.

Shark Week – Fishing for Sharks, Redfish, Seatrout, & Flounder – Debordieu Beach & Georgetown, SC

The shark fishing seems to heat up each year when Discovery Channel starts airing their shark week series. The redfish, seatrout, and flounder bite around Debordieu and Georgetown have also been great despite the heat. I’ve seen some grown trout in the past couple of weeks! But back to the sharks…I don’t take these powerful fish for granted. Its really cool to catch such large, migratory fish in shallow water. They are a reliable target and there’s several different species you can expect to catch in our inshore waters. Lately, we’ve seen bull sharks, blacktips, blacknose, bonnethead, and sharpnose sharks. If you want to put your kids on a fun hard-fighting fish, then a shark trip is a great idea. The tarpon will also be showing up in better numbers this month. Its not uncommon to catch sharks, tarpon, and reds in the same general area in July, August, and September. Stay tuned for some reports and photos! Here’s some pictures from the past couple of weeks.

Georgetown, SC Inshore Fishing – June 2015 – Redfish

Things are pretty steady in the Georgetown marsh this month. The redfish bite is great on artificial and live baits. Trout, flounder, and sharks are also being caught regularly. Sunrise is my favorite time to be out during June. Early summer mornings are beautiful…the temperature is relatively cool early in the day, the light is beautiful, and the fish are feeding aggressively. You can’t beat summer in the Lowcountry! See you on the water.
