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.

Lowcountry Tarpon Tournament – Georgetown, SC Tarpon Fishing

The 3rd Annual Lowcountry Tarpon Tournament was held this weekend in Georgetown, SC. My friend Cheech caught his first SC tarpon while fishing the tournament with me and Capt Douglas Miller. The fish was subsequently fitted with a satellite tag by members of the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust. We will get 2 years of locational data from this fish. Very cool stuff. Please visit www.lowcountrytarpon.com and consider participating next year.

Aside from tarpon fishing, the redfish and trout bite is really good right now when conditions allow you to access the right areas. We’ve been catching plenty of them on live shrimp, mullets, mirrolures, doa shrimp, and some on fly. This is without a doubt my favorite time of year.

Here’s some video from the tarpon… Tarpon Video Click Here
