Hilton Head, Savannah, Beaufort. Fly and Spin fishing

Good Gosh!!  The past couple of days have had great action!!  Yesterday  Mr Rawlings and I pulled up to a school of   150 fish tailing and popping baits along a lee ward bank. The sick part was the starting temp was 24 degrees.  Can’t say over the past 20 years I’ve seen that happen too often.  These fish were having some fun and didn’t seem to mind we were there catching them.  14 fish later what a day.  Today was a bit different,  with winds around  20  we had our work cut out for us.   Hank Goodwin and myself found our first flat blown out, second flat blown, third flat blown out, Shit!!  Well I had found a few fish on a section of flat about a month ago so the run was on.  We pulled up and what I thought was a few fish turned out to be about 100.  The fish were tailing and creeping with backs out as well. With the winds blow’n hard and the water a bit muddy, things were tough.  Still managed 6 nice fish w/ 2 of them pushing 10lbs!

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!!
