Brandon O. and his son Austin had a great day today !! nailing 15 reds on fly all sight casted to. I’ve been on a bit of a roll 20 reds on fly the day before yesterday, followed by 15 today. We found some really cool setups today with some nice singles and schools cruising in some pretty shallow water. The past 2 days were like bone fishing but in much cooler weather, thanksgiving was very giving for those on the boat with me this weekend.
Long time customer and fly master Chris Lidy came down for Thanksgiving and was thankful for the reds giving it up. We sight casted 20 reds in some crystal clear water. It was one of those days that we had a bit of a time getting the fly they wanted and how we needed to work them, once we had the pattern we began busted some serious lips. It seems as though some of the schools I have been on for the past few years have been reduced to almost nothing, that being said I have had to do a bit of homework and go back to places I have fished in the past and have found some nice schools. As a guide I feel I need to be always looking for new places and doing my homework to make sure my customers are on good fish, not beat down fish that everyone knows about. The trout bite continues to be good and, the hot spot is between Tybee and Lil Tybee south of the dead trees.
