I was able to win my 3rd and final SC State Duck Calling Championship and 'Champion of Champions' during the recent Winyah Bay Heritage Festival. I can't thank everyone enough who has supported me and I know Butch Richenback is smiling down on me. #icallforbutch

Here are some of the toms weve taken this season. My son EJ Prince got his first longbeard this year at 7 years old. 23 lb bird 10 an 1/2 beard. I got my first triple beard this year. Some harvested with calls and decoys. Later in the month we found it more effective to let the zinc avian x decoys do the work without any calling which proved effective twice in a row. Good luck to everyone out....  Read More

If you are looking for a Lake Pontchartrain report, well it’s the same ole story as every year in the spring. The trestle is extremely crowded, the river systems are extremely high, the wind is howling but the specks are biting. The annual run of specks is happening across all the bridges in Pontchartrain as usual but the trout have been way below....  Read More

Fishing in South Carolina
In May I will be vacationing in Myrtle Beach and I'm looking for information on where I can catch some blue catfish. I would prefer to stay within an hour distance of Myrtle Beach. I'm from Minnesota and fish flatheads and channels here but know nothing about blue catfish. I won't have access to a boat and as much as I'd love to get a guide for a day, I just can't afford it. Thank you in....  Read More

I just wanted to introduce myself as I have a ton of questions I will be posting in preparation for this move to SC.

I am 35 year old and grew up in the Seattle area and love offshore fishing and hunting. I spent 4 years in the USMC, have a black lab that has turned into more of a house dog then a hunting dog because I found I am not fond of freezing my ass off in cold weather for duck....  Read More

Georgetown, SC March 5 2016
Student Angler League’s final of 4 trails ended with over $1,000 worth of gift cards up for grabs. Clear skies made it attractive but the compass changing winds made it challenging. In a season where 90% of the fleet targeted the 2 reds, the bass division business picked up.

Deer Hunting in South Carolina
I am looking to book a whitetail hunt in S Carolina about 50 miles NE of Savannah. There are 2 dates available to me for the 2016 season, The week of Oct 17th and the week of Nov 14th.

Although I like the October dates better, I am concerned that it may be too hot for deer movement during the daylight hours. On the other hand, the November dates would be 3 weeks behind the prime hunting....  Read More
