The winter fishing has been really good with the slight warming trend. Schools in the Hilton Head and Broad river area are as large as I have seen. With 10-20 fish days and sometimes more on fly and spin. Yesterday was one one of those days you dream about as a guide and angler, we had reds busting baits on the flats and taking poppers on the fly! Over the pasts 20 years of poling the area I can’t remember getting reds to come on on poppers so aggressively Not much to report on the striper front. I have been twice with no luck, we need a serious warming trend to get that bait higher in the water column and make the stripers a bit more accessible. I will have plenty of pics to come, my computer is on the blink so I have been unable to get anything posted.

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!!
