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.

It’s been a great Summer in the salt marsh. The weather has been beautiful and the redfish and flounder bite have been as good as ever. We’ve been catching redfish in the shallow water around Georgetown on gulp bait, topwater lures, fly tackle, and on live baits. The trout bite is firing-up now and the best season for fly fishing for reds is upon us. Can’t wait to see what the fall season has in store. Call any time if you’d like to book a trip or talk about fishing charter options around Pawleys, Georgetown, and McClellanville.

Fishing has been red-hot throughout the month of June. The redfish bite in Pawleys Island and Georgetown has been consistent and plenty of flounder have been caught. Summer is an awesome time for topwater redfish and for fly fishing for tailing redfish in the saltwater creeks, estuaries and flooded spartina grass. The tarpon should also show up soon! Stay tuned friends – and tight lines!
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!
Early spring has gotten off to a great start in the marshes. Georgetown and Pawleys have experienced unseasonably warm weather and the fish have been biting fairly well during what is historically a difficult time of year to fish. The fly fishermen have had luck on shrimp and crab patterns while the bait fishermen have been throwing live minnows on jig-heads. We’ve also been spending some time in the freshwater, deep in the cypress, chasing largemouth bass. If you are planning a vacation in the Pawleys Island, Debordieu, or Georgetown areas, make sure to call ahead to plan a day on the water. Tight lines, anglers!
Here’s a collection of some of my Lowcountry winter fishing photos from the Debordieu, Pawleys Island, and Georgetown, SC marshes. Winter is a great time to get out for redfishing, bird watching, and oystering. Thanks for stopping by and best wishes in 2016 from Winyah Guide Service.
This fall got off to an excellent start with some great tailing tides and early marsh hen hunts. The fishing was basically as good as fishing gets. Unfortunately, our region experienced an unprecedented flood in October that caused devastation to some of our coastal and riverside communities. As the communities began to rebuild, the rivers continued to pump dirty/fresh water into our estuaries. As a result, many fly trips were postponed or cancelled. However, things are now starting to look up and the fishing is improving and the waters are starting to clean up. We’ve had a steady bite on the bull reds and the weather has been beautiful. We are looking forward to some excellent fishing trips throughout the fall and winter. See you on the water!
Every angler loves this time of year. You can catch almost everything that swims in August. The shrimp are stacking up in the creeks and bays and the inshore fish are capitalizing on the abundance of bait. The redfish and flounder bite is great right now, but most guys I know are really trying to catch tarpon while they are around. Yep, August and September are the best months to test your luck with the silver king! There’s plenty of fish around, but getting a bite some preparation and dedication. Hope you all get a shot at a big silver one this year! Stay tuned…
Here’s some shots I got of Capt Newman and Dale during the Lowcountry Tarpon Tournament. Congrats on the win, boys!
Here’s a few tarpon shots from one I picked off on a solo jon boat mission a couple weeks ago. Made one cast all day to a small school of fish and he slammed it! Sometimes everything just comes together on those solo trips. Here’s a quick video… jon boat tarpon video
Seriously…it’s hot. We’ve had a record number of 100 degree days this month, but the fishing remains consistent for big reds, flounder, and trout around Debordieu, Pawleys Island, and Georgetown, SC. The tarpon have also started to trickle in to the rivers and estuaries. Thanks for visiting my blog and stay tuned for tarpon updates over the next couple of months. Also, please visit www.lowcountrytarpon.com for information about Georgetown’s upcoming annual tarpon tournament August 13th-15th. The banquet on the 15th is open to the public.
