Feels like Spring.
The highs were in the 80’s last week!!
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.
Thank you for a great fishing experience last Saturday. Definitely a memory maker! I’d like to stay in touch and will definitely plan a trip for the fall.
