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.

4th of July Tailers – Fishing for Redfish in Georgetown & Pawleys Island, SC

Had 5 good nights of tailing tide the week of the 4th and only got run off by weather once! These were some of the best tides I can remember with the slowest of nights still presenting plenty of shots at tailing fish. Gulp shrimp rigged weedless have been very productive artificial baits in the grass. Crab flies that resemble fiddlers have been getting the best action on the long rod. Here’s a bait that berkley makes that caught my eye last week – it is called Berkley Powerbait jerk shad. This thing looks more like a finger mullet than any artifical bait I’ve seen yet. The first tailing fish we pitched one of these to pounced on it immediately. Please click on an image for full size viewing.

 

Flood Tide Tailing Redfish – Fishing in Georgetown, SC – June 17th

Had a good round of tailing tides for this father’s day weekend. The low tide fishing was slow over the last few days, but the fish saved up their energy for some heavy tailing and feeding on the evening tides. Jim and his son Hunter got to see their first ever flood tide tailers and even were able to feed two of them. Seeing and catching your first tailing redfish is something an angler never forgets.
