Fishing Savannah, Hilton Head and Beaufort

Scott and Mike Dempsey put on a clinic with fly and spin, busting up a number of reds

 

Been fishing Savannah this past month we have had the best weather I can remember.  Consistently sunny with light winds and happy fish.  Reds are doing there thing as always,  but the albies are the shit right  now.  Been chasing them around solo, and that in itself is a workout.  The schools have been staying up for 30 seconds or so.  Run and Gun,  these lil guys are moving so fast !!  You see them run like hell to them  throw the throttle in neutral and run to the bow of the boat and cast.  Try that a dozen times by yourself and you are sweat’n !!! Most are in the 4-6 lbs range but I have had a couple in the 8lbs range. What these guys lack in size they make up for in pure drag screaming speed !!  Tried to get some video yesterday and the Go Pro Batteries died.  Try again today.

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!!
