We finally had some light winds and blue sky yesterday ! It was nice to get out there and chase the critters.   The morning started off with what seemed to be sub freezing temps and slick calm water.  Although it was cold the first flat we pulled up on had some nice fish tailing on the low water.  We had a couple of eats on fly before the fish went into lock down, Time to leave.  Second flat,  well the fish spooked out as soon as I got on the platform at a considerable distance. Damn !  So I just left them.  It’s kinda a bummer when you have seen big schools of reds playing on the flats only to run by another day and see some bait fishing bubs trying to limit out, Bo. Then you come back and half the school is gone if not all, or they are so shell shocked from said bubs fishing them everyday all day.   Oh well enough complaining, the next flat had plenty of reds but were holding kinda deep and hard to spot at times with high thin clouds, but we did manage to catch some fish and miss some.  Fun day all in all, especially when it warmed up !!

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!!
