Take a look at some of our fishing reports from years back – you can get an idea of what species we catch during what time of year, and other similar information.
Winyah Bay/North Inlet
The low water fishing has been very good all winter as long as you picked good weather days plenty of Reds with many double digit days.Fly fishing or spin has been our choice.
Now that March is here the water will be warming (though it never got that cold) Reds will be moving into their spring pattern, Flounder will be moving into the creeks and Trout should be doing well also.
Winyah Bay Flats are starting to fill up with Tailing Reds
September & October

2-26-2011 – Dr Rhett fished today we had a hard time catching fish due to the NE wind, something that the weather man forgot to mention in his forecast… Seems like he could have seen the mostly cloudy skies and NE winds around 20-25 in his little Crystal Ball, if it ever worked right. 🙂 We went anyway and managed to save the day with a few Reds and a Black Drum. Rhett had been stuck in the house for several week after a Hip Replacement and said he was just glad to be out.

Sorry I have not been keeping up regularly with my fishing report, but I have been fishing not typing. 🙂 Below is a brief, month-by-month summary of the summer and early fall…
Mid-June through July 1
Tarpon showed up in the Cape Romain area – in 3 charter trips we went 6 for 12 on Tarpon and also caught a few Sharks.
I also had 2 inshore charters for Red Fish and Flounder – both days we fished the South Santee area and had good catches of Flounder and Reds.
I spent most of my time around Winyah Bay and the Georgetown Jetties, with a few trips to North Inlet. Lots of big Redfish on the South Jetty with a few Tarpon caught regularly on the top of tide. Flounder were on the North Jetty in good numbers.
Back in the Winyah Bay, Trout were around the Shell Banks (& lots of big Trout too!).
Tarpon showed up at the Georgetown Jetty in large numbers – had lots of good days with as many as 14 fish in a 3/4 day charter (That’s Incredible! ) Plenty of sharks and Bull Reds mixed in…
September brought more Tarpon than August! We found them up and down the beach, from North Inlet to Cape Romain and all the inlets between…
Plenty of late-season Tarpon still around the Georgetown Jetties, & lots of Bull Reds.
Trout and Flounder in North Inlet, North Santee, South Santee and Cape Romain.
Red are schooling in the low water flats, with tails in the air – making the Top Water fishing EXCELLENT!
…Fly Fishing has been EXCELLENT too!!!
Many days produced 20 or more fish. A great Fall season!
