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.

Great fishing this weekend – the small mullet and shrimp are thickening in the marsh, jump-starting our warm season fishing patterns. We capitalized on the calm weather and did some sight-fishing and topwater plugging. Gideon & Andy had some incredible eats on Saturday morning. The trout seemed to be eating small grass shrimp, but didn’t mind passing on a shrimp to clobber Andy’s mirrolure topwater. We also found some belly-crawling reds that were eating mullet and shrimp – they were caught on soft plastic jerk baits and live finger mullet.
Gideon caught a nice tagged fish in the inlet – we will report the numbers to SCDNR this week to find out where his fish was tagged and how far it has travelled from the tag site. Remember to leave the tag in the fish – simply record the numbers and report them to DNR. Removing the tag would prevent any future anglers from reporting data back to DNR.
Each of these royal terns had a band on the right leg – couldn’t get close enough to read any of the numbers.
Had our hospital CEO Bruce Bailey and his son Tyler on the boat Sunday. They are fun guys to spend the day with and we had some great fishing throughout the morning.
