Lowcountry Tarpon Tournament – Georgetown, SC Tarpon Fishing

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

Mullet run in full swing – if you see this, I promise there is a tarpon somewhere close by.

 

Jan 28th 2011 – Surgeon Scott – Georgetown, SC Fishing Charters

Broke away from baby-duty for a couple hours on saturday to get my friend Scott on the water for a bit. This guy has been living in Georgetown for less than a week and is already out sampling the best of what our town has to offer. Scott is the new spinal surgeon for the community – glad to know someone who can fix my back when it goes out on me from pushing the boat around so much. We had yet another unseasonably warm January day with temps almost in the 70’s. You know you’re having a warm winter when the alligators are out sunning in January. Hopefully this will be good for our trout population that took such a hit the last couple of winters.

Fish are biting – hope everyone has a chance to get out there this winter!
