Osprey Nests

Our naturalist, Bruce Lampright, was helping with some filming for the real estate office when we captured this image of an adult osprey flying above one of the two nest platforms located here on Brays Island. The nest appears to contain three eggs.

Trophy Bass

The dogwoods are in full bloom.  That means the Largemouth Bass are spawning and some have already laid.  The best fishing has been right at dawn or late in the evening.  You can use top water lures like Buzz Baits, Poppers, and Spooks.  You can expect to catch Bass in the 4-6 pound range in trophy ponds.  These ponds are Big Dig, #1 at the Golf Grille, and Borrow Pit.  More fish can be caught in the family ponds, but they will be smaller.

In the mornings after the sun comes up, switch to sub surface lures.  Carolina Rigs work great in these ponds.  Eight inch pumpkin seed worms and chartreuse tails are ideal.  We keep jon boats at the best ponds ready to fish with a trolling motor and battery.  These boats can be moved to any pond you desire.

If you’d like more information, please contact the Boating Department at (843) 846-3137.  We can help set up your self-guided excursions or assist with guided trips.
