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.

The fishing was dynamite this week! Every day of Thanksgiving week offered-up great weather, unseasonably warm temperatures, and excellent fishing around Debordieu and Georgetown. The redfish were cruising in small schools and were eager to take flies, artificials, and live bait. After a discouraging flood event in Georgetown, it was good to get out and finally start catching double digits of redfish every trip this week. The water temperatures are still warm enough to offer solid fishing conditions through Christmas. I’m really excited about the months ahead.
Hope everyone had a great Christmas season and got to spend time with family! Douglas and I took Mr Hood out yesterday evening for a little post-Holiday fishing and got treated to a killer redfish bite. It was a classic high pressure system right before a front – this usually triggers the fish to put on their feed bags. The wind layed-out perfectly around 4pm and the fish began to break the surface with backs and tails out of the water. At one point, there was 20 tails out of the water at once – Merry Christmas to us! For awhile, we just decided to hold off on casting and watch the awesomeness that was going on aroud us. They eventually let me bomb a fly into the school and wrangle up a nice tailing redfish. Great winter day in the Low Country.
