Catch spring fever…and maybe a few fish!

Just getting back from fishing in Costa Rica. The sailfish bite was fantastic. It was a great family trip. However, upon my return, it has been a bit of struggle to consistently catch fish.

On Saturday, the most consistent bite was from gnats. I fished the falling tide and managed to release 20 or so trout. But, I really had to work for them. The trout were not schooled up (like in winter). They were spread out over a wide area. Most of the fish were in 2 to 4 feet of water. A Z-Man TRD on a 1/6-ounce Ned LockZ jig cast to the edge of the flooded marsh grass produced the most fish. However, “most” was not that many. March can be a tough time to fish. But, you should still go. The days are longer. The weather is warmer. The trees are blooming. Catching fish, well that is just a bonus.

Speaking of catching fish, I will be teaching a class at the Daniel Island Library from 9:30 -11:30 a.m. on April 13. We will cover techniques that I use to catch fish year-round. Additionally, there will be hands-on knot tying and casting lessons. The class is free. However, I am asking attendees to consider a donation to The Lucy Boyle Memorial Fund or Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing. The class is filling up quickly. If you would like to reserve a seat, please send a note to
