Fishing has been red-hot throughout the month of June. The redfish bite in Pawleys Island and Georgetown has been consistent and plenty of flounder have been caught. Summer is an awesome time for topwater redfish and for fly fishing for tailing redfish in the saltwater creeks, estuaries and flooded spartina grass. The tarpon should also show up soon! Stay tuned friends – and tight lines!

The 3rd Annual Lowcountry Tarpon Tournament was held this weekend in Georgetown, SC. My friend Cheech caught his first SC tarpon while fishing the tournament with me and Capt Douglas Miller. The fish was subsequently fitted with a satellite tag by members of the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust. We will get 2 years of locational data from this fish. Very cool stuff. Please visit www.lowcountrytarpon.com and consider participating next year.
Aside from tarpon fishing, the redfish and trout bite is really good right now when conditions allow you to access the right areas. We’ve been catching plenty of them on live shrimp, mullets, mirrolures, doa shrimp, and some on fly. This is without a doubt my favorite time of year.
Here’s some video from the tarpon… Tarpon Video Click Here
Click on the images to view them in full size – thanks for taking a look and have an excellent fall on the water and in the woods!!!
Mullet run in full swing – if you see this, I promise there is a tarpon somewhere close by.
The water has been gin-clear this week as is the norm for this time of year, but this fish are much more active than normal due to the warm weather . So in short, the fishing has been really good. Had regular fly-dude Chris on Saturday who brought his father-in-law along for some action. Chris said this was his best trip so far and he fishes with me a bunch. They caught a pile of fish with numerous doubles mixed in. Chris ended the day by plucking a fat redfish from a school of 30 tailing fish.
Underwater picture taken with the low-quality 5.0 MP camera on my Kodak Paysport. Thought it was a pretty cool photo considering it was taken with a hand-held video camera that costs only a hundred bucks.
On Sunday got to fish briefly with my buds Perry & Douglas. It was hard to get much fishing in with all of the trash-talk going on, but Perry managed to wrangle up a good one on fly that we watched peel away from a school and flare his gills on the fly. I was reminded this day just how good a bucket of fried chicken tastes out on the marsh. If you find a trail of chicken bones in the marsh, they may lead you to Douglas’ secret fishing hole – hahaha.
