Activity in the marsh started picking up throughout the month of May. The bait poured in from the ocean and the fish started feeding hard. Anglers are catching good numbers of redfish, trout, and flounder. The next several weeks are a great time to go for an inshore slam (flounder, trout, and reds in the same day). We also had a nice flood tide in May where the fish got up on the flats and tailed pretty well. One of my anglers managed to land a nice tailing fish on fly…it was his first ever redfish and first time fly fishing. Wish I could say my first redfish was caught on fly.

Here’s some photos from a brief visit to Marathon Key in May. The tarpon fishing was pretty good on bait and lures, but we got skunked on fly. Can’t wait for the tarpon to arrive here in SC.
