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!

March 24th 2012 – Inshore Fishing Around Georgetown and Pawleys Island South Carolina

Fishing is steadily picking up as the water temps rise. Sight-fishing is spotty with the water beginning to transition to the milky hues of summer, but live bait fishing is as good as it gets right now. If you’re willing to fish with live bait, then you can tug on fish until your arms get sore. We did a number on the redfish and black drum saturday in between thunder storms – glad Bucky left his shack unlocked so we could duck the rain without having to head back to the ramp. Flounder and other warm-water species are beginning to invade the marsh and the water temps will be in the seventies soon. Fishing will get better and better over the next two weeks and the redfish will be tailing for fiddler crabs in the flooded spartina soon. Now’s the time to start planning your trip to the marsh.

 

Got the band return on this bird in less than 24 hours – pretty impressed with FWS. This cormorant flew over some pretty awesome destinations between Lake Ontario, Canada and Georgetown, SC – can’t blame him for deciding to stop and take in the sights of the Georgetown marsh.

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!
