Georgetown, South Carolina Fishing – Labor Day Weekend – Reds and Trout

Excellent fishing all week for redfish and trout. Topwater lures, specifically mirrolure top-dogs, have been productive along with DOA shrimp.

This royal tern was after out topwater plug all morning while trout fishing. Look close and you will notice the leg band placed on this bird.  always enjoy coming across banded birds.

Was fortunate enough to have my friends Pace and Barbara this weekend. We visited their son Jake’s spot in the marsh. Jake, you are missed buddy.

Got out with some friends this weekend as well…here we are gathering before dawn for an early morning tarpon hunt.

Saw some nice groups of blue wing teal moving south this week. Hopefully they stick around long enough for the early teal season.


March 24th 2012 – Inshore Fishing Around Georgetown and Pawleys Island South Carolina

Fishing is steadily picking up as the water temps rise. Sight-fishing is spotty with the water beginning to transition to the milky hues of summer, but live bait fishing is as good as it gets right now. If you’re willing to fish with live bait, then you can tug on fish until your arms get sore. We did a number on the redfish and black drum saturday in between thunder storms – glad Bucky left his shack unlocked so we could duck the rain without having to head back to the ramp. Flounder and other warm-water species are beginning to invade the marsh and the water temps will be in the seventies soon. Fishing will get better and better over the next two weeks and the redfish will be tailing for fiddler crabs in the flooded spartina soon. Now’s the time to start planning your trip to the marsh.


Got the band return on this bird in less than 24 hours – pretty impressed with FWS. This cormorant flew over some pretty awesome destinations between Lake Ontario, Canada and Georgetown, SC – can’t blame him for deciding to stop and take in the sights of the Georgetown marsh.
