As far as the reds go nothing has changed, still plenty of fish tailing on the hgh water and nice shots at low water. Cobia are around, the Broad seems to be a bit congested and I havn’t heard of many cobia being sight casted to. The beach fronts are hosting plent of lady fish, spanish, and smaller Jacks. Fun topwater action with poppers. Been talking to a few folks around town that havn’t even caught a trout this year. These are guys who know how to fish, we need to practice as much catch and release on these larger fish to help a comeback. Let’s hope the bait soakers don’t kill the rest of them. This will put more pressure on our reds, hopefully the powers at be will pull their heads out of their ASS and put together a proper fisheries managment plan for the state of Georgia. Take the fisheries managment out of the politicians hand and put in DNR’s. Lord knows I havn’t met a politician that knows what their doing.

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!!
