Sometimes I just have to rant. Today we’ll talk about campers kids. Campers are the guides and anglers that go to the same spot every time they fish. I mean every time ! There is one guide here in town that you can set your watch to him showing up at one spot daily. Not only is he pounding the spot there are multiple boats that come and go fishing the spot as well. Even if you are releasing the fish what do you think this is doing to the fish ? I have been getting a bunch of calls from friends lately complaining about the reds not tailing very well. That’s because they and who knows how many other people have pounded the fish into submission. There is a place on Pickney Island that has plenty of fish on the low water and they are spooky. You can bank on seeing multiple boats there daily high and low tides. If you enjoy redfishing one should rotate flats, fish one and leave it alone, If you are a camper style guide you are doing yourself, your customers and anyone else that may want to fish that group, no Favors SO remember kids don’t be a camper.

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!!
