The winds have fallen and the fish are happy !!

you know your on happy fish when they are going nuts on poppers

 

It’s incredible what happens after the winds lay down after a couple of weeks N.E. at 20 plus.  Fish are happy and popping baits and anglers are happy busting lips !  It’s nothing short of amazing when the winds fall off and the fish have a happy time to eat, and this is what has happened this week at Pickney Island.  Over the past week I have seen the fish at Pickney Island go from unhappy to very happy !! just because the winds have fallen.  Let’s hope the weather holds this pattern for the remainder of the winter.  Wishful thinking.  I’m sure at some point winter will rear it’s ugly head, but till then have fun with the fish !!!

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!!
