Have had some excellent marsh hen bunting on the big tides lately in Georgetown SC along with a steady trout bite. Gotta love fall in South Carolina’s Lowcountry.

A highly anticipated time of year. The weather is fair and the fishing keeps getting better with each passing week. Here’s some photos from recent trips. It’s been fun fishing with such good people. Tight lines folks!
Great fishing this weekend – the small mullet and shrimp are thickening in the marsh, jump-starting our warm season fishing patterns. We capitalized on the calm weather and did some sight-fishing and topwater plugging. Gideon & Andy had some incredible eats on Saturday morning. The trout seemed to be eating small grass shrimp, but didn’t mind passing on a shrimp to clobber Andy’s mirrolure topwater. We also found some belly-crawling reds that were eating mullet and shrimp – they were caught on soft plastic jerk baits and live finger mullet.
Gideon caught a nice tagged fish in the inlet – we will report the numbers to SCDNR this week to find out where his fish was tagged and how far it has travelled from the tag site. Remember to leave the tag in the fish – simply record the numbers and report them to DNR. Removing the tag would prevent any future anglers from reporting data back to DNR.
Each of these royal terns had a band on the right leg – couldn’t get close enough to read any of the numbers.
Had our hospital CEO Bruce Bailey and his son Tyler on the boat Sunday. They are fun guys to spend the day with and we had some great fishing throughout the morning.
The Wooden Boat Show was this weekend in Georgetown, SC – this is my all time favorite Georgetown event. The organizers did an incredible job making this year’s event arguably the best one in the books. The workmanship on some of the wooden boats was nothing short of mind-blowing. There were steam driven skiffs, custom wooden yacht tenders, cabin cruisers, and more. Make sure to check out the event next year if you missed it.
Sunday I took Chris for a redfish charter and the conditions were excellent – about time we got some legitamate sight fishing weather. The winds were light and the water was clear which made it easier to spot schools of fish cruising the marsh at higher tides. Chris is an excellent fly caster – he can honestly cast a fly rod better than his conventional tackle. This guy wouldn’t bait fish if his life depended on it…I like that about him. He brought several nice fish to hand throughout the afternoon. Good work Chris!
