    I can't help you on guides or gouge, but 8 Wt is more than enough.

    8wt will be fine for inshore reds, but if you're talking the bulls over deeper water, you're gonna want a 10wt+.

    When I lived there, the word was that in the Fall when the marsh grass started to turn brown, a shrimp pattern fly around the grass edges could be a great deal of fun. The tidal swings in the lowcountry mean that the fish move a good bit so if the tide is moving out, targeting those current breaks in the main creek channels is a good idea. If the tide is moving in and the marshes are heavily flooded the target area goes up exponentially.

    Haddrell's Point Tackle in Mount Pleasant has been in business there for several decades, they could give you leads on guides or tactics. They always helped me out for what I was looking for when I lived there. I would call or stop by and talk to them. Good luck!

    Check in with the brothers at Haddrell's Point tackle (mt. pleasant). They are a wealth of info and are guides as well. Charleston Angler are fly specialists and can help in that field. If you are kayaking, I cannot emphasize how great the Sullivans Island area is. The put ins are kind of secret spots but I can help if interested. Bulls Bay, Cape Romain area is a hot area to hit as well. Have fun.

    Tks for the info, really wanted to go now, but I think waiting till it cools a lil would be wise. Still need to scope a place to stay where I feel my boat/kayak is secure. U gave me a start, tks again to everyone who replied.
