Inshore Fishing in Georgetown, SC – December 2012

Happy Holidays y’all. Seems like whenever we can find time on the water between all of the Holiday activities, we get rewarded with some pretty solid fishing action. Given the warm start to the winter season, the trout are still abundant, and willing to pounce on grubs and hard lures. The redfish have formed their winter schools and the sight-fishing has been great on the days where you can get some clear/sunny skies during the right tide stages. There’s also been a lot of black drum mixed into our catches. If you can get the time, the Holiday season is one of the best times to fish. Not to mention, the wildlife viewing and sunsets are really great in December…there’s always something pretty to rest your eyes on out in the marsh. Hope to see you out there. Merry Christmas!

Fly Fishing for Redfish in Georgetown, South Carolina – Inshore Fishing Charters

If you can get the weather, November is arguably the best month for low tide fly fishing…actually not arguably…it is the best month for low tide fly fishing. We lucked-up on several days of light winds and high sunshine last week and the fishing was really great. Was fortunate enough to have my friend Tucker Blythe up from Charleston for a day of throwing gurglers and surface fies. The water clarity was really good, so we were able to get some pretty neat photos. Also had my regular fly client, Dr Chris, out for some good fly fishing. He even bailed out of the skiff and stalked a couple of nice reds that were working way up in the skinny water. He caught them on a rattle shrimp pattern that he had been working on.

Fall Inshore Fishing Report – Geogetown, SC – Redfish, Trout, & Flounder

You’ve got to love October…there’s more options for outdoor recreation than one redneck has time for. Do I go sit in a tree stand…catch a college football game…head to the dove field? Lots of tempting options to keep one from making it on the water. If you do find yourself on the water in October, you can bank on some of the prettiest sunrises/sunsets of the year, some great topwater action, giant redfish, and lots of great wildlife viewing. I’m thinking God placed college football, deer hunting, and all of these other temptations in October just to reward the devout fisherman in the fall.

Fall Inshore Fishing in Georgetown, SC – Sharks and Tailing Redfish

The fishing in Georgetown was DYNAMITE this weekend. The fall season has officially kicked off. We had a good round of flood tides where the fish were tailing happily. They were eager to take a well-placed crab fly. Dr Chris went 5 for 7 on fly Saturday with a version of my chinaback fiddler fly he tied. We also had some shark trips this weekend that were very productive – you couldn’t keep more than one rod in the water at a time before a blacktip had your bait. There’s also some tarpon in the area given that the mullet run is in full swing. This is a great time to fish for trout, redfish, flounder, sharks, and tarpon. Not to mention, the wildlife and bird viewing is at its peak right now. You never know what you are going to see out there on the water in the fall. Yesterday was the last day of the early marsh hen hunting season and we watched a bald eagle take advantage as he snacked on a freshly caught marsh hen!!!

South Carolina Tarpon Fishing – Georgetown, SC

Got on a good tarpon bite this weekend with my buddy Capt Douglas Miller and Brit Rodgers. Was nice to get out with some friends and do some fishing on our own. Weather was perfect and there was even a little nip of fall in the air. The bait seems to be moving down the beach pretty consistently and things just feel right out there. This should mark the start of our fall fishing season…which has got our shallow water fishing community buzzing pretty good. Please consider fishing or attending the Lowcountry Tarpon Tournament out of Georgtown, SC this year. Visit www.lowcountrytarpon.com for more info. Here’ some pics from our weekend…

Here’s a few B&W pics from a redfish/flounder trip with Lenny & Corey this weekend. The bite was somewhat slow due to the overcast conditions on saturday, but we had some good topwater blow-ups and and other bites on gulps.

Inshore Fishing Report Georgetown, SC – August 2013

Had some great fishing this weekend with some great folks. The redfish, flounder, ladyfish, and trout were biting. We even jumped a tarpon on redfish tackle…he wore through the leader after a few jumps. We also had some flood tides this weekend…gotta love some tailing redfish. The fishing will continue to be great all the way through fall. Click on the photos to view them in full size.

Shark Week 2013 Inshore Fishing Georgetown, SC & Snake Hunting with Black River Outdoors

Shark week is one of my favorite times of year…everybody wants to go catch sharks. Had 2 awesome trips where the sharks and redfish were very cooperative. We also saw some tarpon this week, but weren’t lucky enough to get a hook-up. Click on the photos to view them in full size.

Was also fortunate enough to get out on a paddle trip with Paul Laurent from Black River Outdoors this past week. We paddled some area up the Black River and cruised the banks for snakes. We must have spotted 20+ snakes during the outing. All were non-venomous snakes, except for the nice cottonmouth!!! What a cool a trip. I’d recommend calling Paul at Black River Outdoors and booking a trip.

Family Fishing in Georgetown, SC This Weekend

Took the weekend off and spent some time on the water with my family. Had everyone out there…my wife, brother, and 2 daughters. Fishing was great and so was the weather. Even had time to go look for a tarpon one morning early… was greeted with a pretty sunrise and plenty of hungry sharks, but no tarpon this time. Here’s some photos…

Inshore Fishing Charters Georgetown, SC July 2013

Yep, the water is still crayola brown from all of the rain earlier in the month…and the bay water is totally fresh…not a hint of salt. Honestly I thought this would mean difficult fishing for the week, but we really had some pretty decent action. There’s a little more bait in the creeks that I’ve seen recently and the redfish are capitalizing on it – busting mullets and acting generally happy. We also had some great tailing action on the flood tides last week despite the wind. Here’s a few pics…click on them to view them in full size. Have a good Summer!

Inshore Fishing Report – Georgetown, SC – late June 2013

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.
