New critters are starting to show up along the coast, Cobia are moving in the area with a few being caught last week on fly.  The season in South Carolina is closed, but you can still go harass them and let’m go.  This is going to reduce boat traffic tremendously and hopefully provide us with more fish cruising the surface.  I will be looking for them this week , and would love to see one inhale a customers fly.  Please no clouds !  George Brownie and I headed out chasing some reds the other day and found some fish willing to take some feathers, but many fish were a bit funny acting.  All in all it was good day, pesky clouds were killing us at times then the wind decided to visit.

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!!
