Jan 14th with Corbin, Langdon, & Frank – Georgetown, SC Fishing Charters

You can’t catch em sitting on the couch…

I probably wouldn’t have even gone fishing today given the cold and wind, but a local captain called and asked me if I could get some of his clients on the water for the afternoon. I told him if they weren’t worried about the cold, then neither was I. Never did I imagine that we would end up having one of the best bites of the year. We were unhooking fish the entire trip and couldn’t keep a bait in the water. Corbin’s daughter, Langdon, was a pro by the end of the trip and was gracious enough to share some of her expert tips with the rest of us anglers – hahaha. Its pretty awesome watching young people brave a little bit of cold weather to get out and catch some fish. This trip really made me really look forward to watching my daughter reel in her first fish…she will be 2 this summer.

Flood Tide Redfishing – Georgetown, South Carolina

Fished at sunset last night with long-time client, Roger (AKA Bodygaurd). The fish were tailing pretty hard at first, eating every fiddler crab they could find. We caught one and then went through a period where we didn’t see a fish for what seemed like an hour – then we changed flats and it picked back up again. Rodger threw Gulp Shrimp (new penny color) and it seemed to do the trick pretty well. After a long debate, Roger talked me into letting him keep one 23″ fish for dinner. I don’t keep them often, but felt like he earned a good meal. We cleaned the fish and found a pile of fiddlers and blue crabs in its stomach. Hard to imagine one 23″ fish could get that much food down – and still want to eat Roger’s Gulp bait. I would¬†definitely advise you fly people to be throwing crab patterns in the grass.

We got back in the grass briefly on Wednesday evening. Douglas’ first cast with the Mirrolure 5″ Provoker picked up this nice tailing redfish. We used the gold/red glitter pattern. These are great looking baits.
