Winter REDS & SPECS

Feels like Spring.

The highs were in the 80’s last week!!

Throwing artificial lures was the way to go!
Always nice to see Speckled Trout trout feeding consistently . I’m looking forward to some more weather like this.

Thanks,

Winter RedFish in Charleston SC

Don’t forget to pack some smaller flies. We were throwing all the go to flies and nothing seemed to work. The Redfish were rolling on their sides and seemed happy, so I was stumped. I thought maybe something smaller might do the trick.
Way to go Mark! Always a pleasure spending the day with you!!

Thanks,

Sometimes the guide likes being guided

We had the pleasure of visiting Cape Santa Maria this winter! Quiet, peaceful, and absolutely nothing to do here but relax!
I am blessed to have son who shares my passion with the long rod! Many years ago my father took me, and now I’m fortunate to be able to take him.
Well worth a visit if!! Cape Santa Maria, Long Island, Bahamas

Isle of Palms RedFish

Great color patterns

Some go to patterns for fall & winter Red Fishing here in Charleston SC. Sight fishing around the Isle of Palms area can be great during the fall, and winter months!

The Red Fish are schooled up, and the water is crystal clear!

When we get a break in the weather here in Charleston, it makes for a great opportunity to get out on the water! With the calm, clear water, it is easy to locate the schools of Red Fish. Which provides an angler a wonderful opportunity to site cast artificial lures or the fly.

It’s February and the water temperatures are still pretty low, but we are finally starting to see some warm days here in Charleston.  With the warm weather comes a change in the water temps around Charleston, and especially the Isle of Palms area where I concentrate most of my angling. Right now the fishing is pretty spotty with spooky fish, and a slow approach is necessary. However my clients and I have been able to manage some successful days.

We had a break in the weather on 2/18/14 and I was able to put Randy and his wife Carol on several nice schools of Red Fish. Unfortunately the dolphins were all over the fish on the flats, so plan B on the ICW worked out well.  This was Carol’s first time and she did a wonderful job landing several nice Reds.

I just wanted to thank everyone who made 2013 a successful and memorable year. Here are a few pictures from the 2013 Red Fishing, Speckled Sea Trout season out of the Isle Of Palms. 2014 is off to a great start, and I’m looking forward to seeing everyone again.IMG_0610 IMG_0601IMG_0579 IMG_0627 IMG_0628 IMG_0631 IMG_0632 IMG_0635 IMG_0636 IMG_0648 IMG_0668 IMG_0671 IMG_0673 IMG_0686 IMG_0696 IMG_0703 IMG_0713 IMG_0727 IMG_0714
