4/15 Capt Fuss ran our bay boat in the harbor this morning with the Meeks.  Picked them up at Shem Creek and were on the fish right away with a great bite throwing lures and catching tons of bluefish and spanish mackerel.  Then they ventured off into the creeks and caught about a dozen trout and 3 redfish.
I ran another corporate skeet shoot on the boat out of Kiawah with some more corporate guest from yesterday.

4/14 I fished with a group staying on Kiawah this morning and bite was a little slower than it has been.  Started off looking for redfish, but couldn't get them to eat, but did manage 4 black drum and a flounder before we headed out into the main river and ended the trip with 4 bonnet head sharks.
That afternoon I ran a corporate skeet shoot from the boat, and everyone had a big time with some really good shooters on the boat.

Charleston Fly Fishing Charters

4/12 Capt Colt ran our new bay boat out of Charleston today and hit the oceanside for some near coastal action.  Fish few spots the drifted with some light tackle jigs and caught tons of black sea bass and a few blues and weakfish.  Then they went searching for something on topwater to throw the fly and some lures at.  Found some nice schools of Atlantic Bonita n the surface and could not get them close enough to take a fly, but the boated 6 nice ones on casting spoons before calling it a day.

Kiawah Island Inshore Fishing Charter

4/1 Had a good flood tide this morning and got to fish with some regulars ( Matt Farrow and his Dad from Boston).  First couple of stops not much action, but the 3rd stop was as good as it gets.  In 2 hours Matt and his father boated 37 redfish, and 2 large sea trout. 30 of the redfish were over 8 pounds with the largest weighing 14 pounds, all reds were tagged and released but the 2 trout went home with the guys for a fresh fish dinner.

Folly Beach Reef Fishing Charter

3/31 after a few nasty cold and windy days the weather finally broke enough for me to take a group who were staying on Folly Beach out fishing to the reef.  Caught about 50 black sea bass , a few sheepshead and whiting at the reef before heading inshore for the last 45 minutes to try for a redfish.  They redfish bite was good, in 30 minutes they hooked 6 and boated 3 reds between 8-12 pounds and lost a few more to some structure.
