Jan 12th & 13th – Winter Red Fishing in Georgetown, South Carolina – Fishing Charters

Had a great weekend on the water with Ryan, Schuyler, Cheech, and Dr McCabe and family. We easily broke the 70 degree mark both days – that always makes for a pretty good January bite. Saturday the sight fishing conditions were perfect with the bright sun and lack of cloud cover. We found a couple LARGE groups of fish cruising on top of the oysters at high water, but they were surprisingly picky. Once the sun warmed the mud a low tide, the fishing started to pick up. On Sunday, Dr McCabe surprised her dad with a fishing trip while he was in town visiting – he had no idea what they were going to do until they drove up and saw my skiff. Mr Poferl was visibly excited as he is an avid walleye fisherman up in Minnesota. Dr McCabe, her dad, and son did a number on the redfish and even landed a bonus flounder – how many of those do you see in January? Hoping this weather holds for awhile!!!!

December Redfish – Georgetown & Pawleys Island, South Carolina

Nice weekend to be on the water. Saturday was slick calm and the bite was pretty good once the fog lifted. Had an even better day with the Shealys on Sunday. They caught upwards of 20 fish throwing gulp swimming mullet and mud minnows. The temperature rose to above 70 degrees which always triggers a good winter bite. Fishing should be great through the Christmas Holiday. Hope everyone is planning for some time on the water.
