Just updating some photos from this week’s outings. The redfish bite has been better than average for August with the cooler temperatures and the bait is really getting thick. The mullet run is just around the corner and that means TARPON. There’s also several good flood tides over the next couple of months. Fishing should be great from now through the Holidays. Lastly, if you are a tarpon angler, please consider fishing the Lowcountry Tarpon Tournament. www.lowcountrytarpon.com – all proceeds go the Bonefish and Tarpon Trust. The tournament will be held September 14th & 15th in Georgetown, SC and Lands End Restaurant and Georgetown Landing Marina have agreed to host. Dr Jerry Ault from BTT will present. It will be an awesome event!

Had a great few days fishing with some of my Greenville, SC buds. The redfish bite has been pretty solid with some bigger-size fish being caught in the shallows lately. The shark fishing is also great in all of the local inlets. Fishing live mullet in the 6-8″ range has been best for the large blacktip and finetooth sharks. The bait is really starting to invade the bays and inlets and the numbers of tarpon sightings should start to increase throughout the next several weeks. Make sure to look for large concentrations of bait…that’s what the fish are doing…looking for bait. If you find bait, you’re going to find bigger fish. Its that simple. Have fun out there!

Had some great fishing this weekend with friends Matt, Perry, & Douglas. We started the weekend off seeing a few rolling tapon – got a bait over to one and was on! Douglas fought this tarpon for over an hour before we got her boatside. Here’s some video of the tarpon action… South Carolina Tarpon Video
We managed some nice flounder, redfish, and trout throughout the rest of the weekend. Here are a few photos from our time on the water. The fishing will be heating up as we approach the fall. The shrimp are getting huge and the mullet run is pretty much beginning. Now is the time to catch a tarpon in South Carolina. We are looking forward to the next several months as they are the pinnacle of Lowcountry fishing.
Roger and his crew wanted to catch some sharks on saturday in honor of shark week. The action was slower than I’ve seen since the sharks showed up this summer. I’m guessing the HOT water temps sent the fish up the coast in search of cooler water. The boys stuck it out and ended up landing a nice blacknose shark. The next day the redfish bite was excellent. I was suprised they ate so well since the flood tides have allowed the fish to feed on fiddler crabs in the spartina grass at high tide. Will put a pile of redfish in the boat – we had a great time. Good work Will.
Fished at sunset last night with long-time client, Roger (AKA Bodygaurd). The fish were tailing pretty hard at first, eating every fiddler crab they could find. We caught one and then went through a period where we didn’t see a fish for what seemed like an hour – then we changed flats and it picked back up again. Rodger threw Gulp Shrimp (new penny color) and it seemed to do the trick pretty well. After a long debate, Roger talked me into letting him keep one 23″ fish for dinner. I don’t keep them often, but felt like he earned a good meal. We cleaned the fish and found a pile of fiddlers and blue crabs in its stomach. Hard to imagine one 23″ fish could get that much food down – and still want to eat Roger’s Gulp bait. I would definitely advise you fly people to be throwing crab patterns in the grass.
We got back in the grass briefly on Wednesday evening. Douglas’ first cast with the Mirrolure 5″ Provoker picked up this nice tailing redfish. We used the gold/red glitter pattern. These are great looking baits.

Fished with Dave and his son-in-law Sam today. This was a special day for Dave because he just entered retirement – live it up Dave! Sam was in town from Chile in South America. We had great weather and lighter winds that made for some better sight fishing – finally. Dave and Sam did a great job and caught some really big reds. The fish were caught on live mullet and gulp swimming mullet on a 1/4 oz jig. Good job boys.
