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.

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.
I used to always hear “winds from the east, fish bite the least” – you can throw that line out with the trash. Tailers, big trout, flounder, giant redfish…this week was so much fun on the marsh. The east winds cooled things down temperature-wise and the fish got happy. Here’s Nathan with his first sight-fished tailing redfish…

After Nick caught this freakishly-big trout on a live menhaden, we decided he needed to try for his first inshore slam. Seems like every time we set out to do this, we have a hard time catching that third species. We had already caught plenty of redfish, so all we needed was a flounder. We tied on a jig and a white grub and Nick started casting. It only took him a few casts to land a decent flounder. Good job Nick!
Sometimes in February and March, sight fishing and fly fishing just aren’t an option due to high winds. Rather than stay off the water, live bait fishing is always an option. You can buy mud minnows year round from Pawleys Island Outdoors and redfish love them.
