Saturday was the Best! Thank you very much for making Maclean’s first saltwater fishing trip a memory of a lifetime for both of us. He has been non-stop about when we can go again. I’m am working on October 19th or 20th. Can you pencil us in and we can confirm the exact day as we get closer ? Thanks again for your patience and excellent guiding!
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.
Generally, mother nature rewards only the most determined anglers. This youngster is reaping his rewards…

Fall Fishing in Charleston
Dizzying redfish action characterizes fall fishing in Charleston. The reds attacked our baits until the live wells were empty and my hands were bleeding from re-rigging lines. There was way too much chaos to count the number of fish we landed on this charter but that’s a good thing in this context.
