Winter Fishing Report from Debordieu, Pawleys Island, and Georgetown, SC

Here’s a collection of some of my Lowcountry winter fishing photos from the Debordieu, Pawleys Island, and Georgetown, SC marshes. Winter is a great time to get out for redfishing, bird watching, and oystering. Thanks for stopping by and best wishes in 2016 from Winyah Guide Service.

Tailing Redfish & Marsh Hens – Cast & Blast – Fall 2015 Report – Debordieu & Georgetown, SC

This fall got off to an excellent start with some great tailing tides and early marsh hen hunts. The fishing was basically as good as fishing gets. Unfortunately, our region experienced an unprecedented flood in October that caused devastation to some of our coastal and riverside communities. As the communities began to rebuild, the rivers continued to pump dirty/fresh water into our estuaries. As a result, many fly trips were postponed or cancelled. However, things are now starting to look up and the fishing is improving and the waters are starting to clean up. We’ve had a steady bite on the bull reds and the weather has been beautiful. We are looking forward to some excellent fishing trips throughout the fall and winter. See you on the water!

Tarpon & Redfish – Georgetown, Debordieu, & Pawleys Island Fishing Report – August 2015

Every angler loves this time of year. You can catch almost everything that swims in August. The shrimp are stacking up in the creeks and bays and the inshore fish are capitalizing on the abundance of bait. The redfish and flounder bite is great right now, but most guys I know are really trying to catch tarpon while they are around. Yep, August and September are the best months to test your luck with the silver king! There’s plenty of fish around, but getting a bite some preparation and dedication. Hope you all get a shot at a big silver one this year! Stay tuned…

Here’s some shots I got of Capt Newman and Dale during the Lowcountry Tarpon Tournament. Congrats on the win, boys!

Here’s a few tarpon shots from one I picked off on a solo jon boat mission a couple weeks ago. Made one cast all day to a small school of fish and he slammed it! Sometimes everything just comes together on those solo trips. Here’s a quick video… jon boat tarpon video

Debordieu & Georgetown, SC Fishing is Hot – July 2015

Seriously…it’s hot. We’ve had a record number of 100 degree days this month, but the fishing remains consistent for big reds, flounder, and trout around Debordieu, Pawleys Island, and Georgetown, SC. The tarpon have also started to trickle in to the rivers and estuaries. Thanks for visiting my blog and stay tuned for tarpon updates over the next couple of months. Also, please visit www.lowcountrytarpon.com for information about Georgetown’s upcoming annual tarpon tournament August 13th-15th. The banquet on the 15th is open to the public.

Shark Week – Fishing for Sharks, Redfish, Seatrout, & Flounder – Debordieu Beach & Georgetown, SC

The shark fishing seems to heat up each year when Discovery Channel starts airing their shark week series. The redfish, seatrout, and flounder bite around Debordieu and Georgetown have also been great despite the heat. I’ve seen some grown trout in the past couple of weeks! But back to the sharks…I don’t take these powerful fish for granted. Its really cool to catch such large, migratory fish in shallow water. They are a reliable target and there’s several different species you can expect to catch in our inshore waters. Lately, we’ve seen bull sharks, blacktips, blacknose, bonnethead, and sharpnose sharks. If you want to put your kids on a fun hard-fighting fish, then a shark trip is a great idea. The tarpon will also be showing up in better numbers this month. Its not uncommon to catch sharks, tarpon, and reds in the same general area in July, August, and September. Stay tuned for some reports and photos! Here’s some pictures from the past couple of weeks.

Georgetown, SC Inshore Fishing – June 2015 – Redfish

Things are pretty steady in the Georgetown marsh this month. The redfish bite is great on artificial and live baits. Trout, flounder, and sharks are also being caught regularly. Sunrise is my favorite time to be out during June. Early summer mornings are beautiful…the temperature is relatively cool early in the day, the light is beautiful, and the fish are feeding aggressively. You can’t beat summer in the Lowcountry! See you on the water.

Georgetown, SC Fishing Charters – May 2015

Fishing in May has been great. The marsh has come alive for the summer season. New bait is showing up daily and the fish are feeding aggressively on congregated mullet and grass shrimp. We’ve spent most of our time catching redfish at low tide and during the evening flood tides, but flounder have also been abundant. It’s been fun listening to the marsh wake up the last several mornings. If you keep an ear out, you can hear the sound of flounder and redfish slurping baitfish off the surface.  If you slip up on them quietly, you may catch one tailing or with his back out of the water…slip a good cast in there and hold on!

January / February 2015

Hope everyone started their 2015 off right. The fishing this winter has been the best I’ve seen in several seasons. I’m guessing it has to do with warmer temperatures and the availability of baitfish and small crustaceans in our estuaries throughout these colder months. The redfish bite has been great on live bait and artificials. We’ve been putting the jon boat to use more often than the flats skiff so we can gather oysters while we are out fishing. Spring is right around the corner. Hope to see you on the water!

December 2014 Inshore Fishing – Georgetown, SC

December has been a great month in the Georgetown marsh. The weather has been unseasonably warm and the fish have been cooperative. We’ve had some great sight-fishing and some all-around good times in the creeks. Can’t wait to see if January holds the same consistent action that December has. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours! See you in 2015.

Fall Redfish in Georgetown, SC – October Fishing – Albino Dolphin

If you can get away from college football and out of the deer stand, this is hands-down the best time of year to be fishing in the Lowcountry marshes. The weather has been great and the fish have been in large schools pushing shrimp along the mud banks. Leave the cast net at home (unless you are shrimping), as any artificial bait will be enough to get a reaction from an october redfish. It is also a good time to check out all of the Lowcountry wildlife…we even spotted an albino dolphin this week. From what I can tell, there’s only been a few ever reported in the USA. Pretty rare sight. Keep your eyes peeled out there…never know what you’ll see. Happy fall people .
