Man what a great week of fishing it has been.  The winds have fallen to nothing and the reds have been taking advantage of the great weather to stuff their bellies.  James and hi son Ryan came down from Atl. to chase some reds with me and we didn’t have to chase much, just cast.  We had so many fish cruising the bank we were fishing that I couldn’t even take pics of all the fish that had caught. The tides have been running over predicted, leaving the water not as clear as would like to see this time of year, but plenty clear to see many, many reds. I’ve been wanting to go out in the ocean and see if the allies are out there, but when you know your going to have giant schools of reds ready to bust up some flies, well it’s kinda tough to pas that up.  I sure hope we can continue this mild winter weather, but ya never know what mother nature is going to toss at ya.

I have been fishing the Georgia and South Carolina Coast for 30 years and guiding full time for 20 plus years. What you will get from me is a quality fishing trip, whether with fly rod or spinning tackle that is always a long time on the water for the rate. My half days run more like 5-6 hours and full days are over 8 hours. 4 hours on a half day just isn't long enough to fish. What you will not get from me is a quick trip to spots 5 minutes away that are fished heavily so can make it back to the dock in time for my next trip. I have guided through out the southeast as well as Alaska and the Bahamas. I have been instrumental in developing shallow water sight casting in Georgia and South Carolina and have been the first to introduce Tarpon fishing on fly rod to South Carolina and Georgia!!
