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!

Georgetown, SC Fishing Report – Jan 2014

Holy ice chunks – its freezing outside – they’re even calling for snow today and tomorrow. It wouldn’t be the worst thing to see some snow on the beach and some powder in the palmetto trees. Hopefullly, we’ll get a decent dusting, everybody can build snowmen for a day, and then go back to 60 degrees for the weekend. I’ve been pretty slack about updating my blog since the Holiday season as we’ve been immersing ourselves in some other local outdoor activitites throughout the month, but there’s still fish to be caught if you don’t mind putting on an extra layer.  The fish are in a typical winter pattern right now, hanging a little deeper, where the water temp is more stable. If you are willing to dredge some deeper holes and fish some structure, then you can expect to have a productive day using gulp baits, hard lures, and live mud minnows. The fly guys have even scored some fish while dredging deeper spots. Best wishes in 2014 and I hope to see you on the water.

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.

 

Steven & Wendy May 2012 – Georgetown Inshore Fishing Charters

Had some great fishing on Saturday with Steven & Wendy from Manning, SC. I’m not going to say who caught more fish Steven…hahaha. The mullets are really pouring into the marsh right now and live bait fishing is very productive as well as using mullet-imitating lures. The early morning bite wasn’t as good as usual this time of year, but things really fired up on the incoming tide.

My pal Scooter Harmon took me up friday for an aerial tour of the marsh. It looks just as beautiful from 1000ft as it does from sea level.

March 7th with Kent Edmonds and Capt. Newman Weaver – Georgetown, SC Fishing Charters

Had a great day fishing this weekend with Temple Fork Outfitters (TFO) rep, Kent Edmonds and Capt. Newman Weaver from Kingfisher Guide Service. Kent is a heck of a nice guy and wrks really hard as a rep for many brands in the fishing industry such as TFO, Freedom Hawk Kayaks, Galvan Fly Reels, and Teeny Fly Lines. Kent is also an accomplished freshwater guide in Georgia. He targets shoal bass, stripers, and other species on the Flint River – exclusively with a fly rod.

It was nice to finally see a calm, sunny day in March. The fish were very happy on the rising tide and were slurping our flies in the top of the water column. We used a variey of flies including sliders, shrimp patterns, and fiddler patterns. They definitely wanted food from the crustacean family. We even saw tailing fish to start the day off. Gotta love redfishing in the Carolinas.
