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.
The redfish have been very active this spring. We are primarily bait fishing, using shrimp, mud minnows, menhaden, and finger mullet. The reds seem to still be a little spooky at low water, and difficult to catch on artificial. The trout, however, are feeding aggressively on artificial shrimp, and top water action. When fishing with the younger anglers, the trout don’t seem to mind a mud minnow.
