Winter is here

Looking at my last post I was wondering if it was ever going to get winter like. Well, it has become winter !  Seems as though I have been rescheduling more trips than fishing.  Some days just aren’t worth going and getting your butt kicked.  When Scott and Mike Dempsey came in for a day of fishing the weather turned out to be less than perfect, but we made the call to go give it a look, being that the weather man said it was going to be in the 70’s. It didn’t even get out of the 50’s !  Blowing, rain and fog made conditions less than favorable.  We still managed to find some fish that were willing to take a fly.  Now that we have some serious cold fronts swinging through, now we will have those sunny day with cooler temps.  The sun is so key this time of year for locating and fly or lure placement on the low tides.

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!!
