Generally, mother nature rewards only the most determined anglers. This youngster is reaping his rewards…
Adam’s First Fishing Trip
October 2009… The first annual Rodgers’ family fishing trip
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.
I had the pleasure of fishing with Katie and her family this past week while they where visiting the Isle of Palms. This young lady could do it all from redfish and flounder to this nice speckled sea trout, it was a great day fishing the Charleston Harbor and surrounding flats and estuaries.
Can’t argue with your son at 5 am when asked if we can go fishing.
Teaching locals how to fish Charleston waters is one of my favorite charters to run.
Charleston Fishing Lessons
Teaching locals how to fish Charleston waters is one of my favorite charters to run. Unfortunately, I rarely ever remember to take pictures when I take them fishing. Last weekend I spent the morning showing Adam, a Mt Pleasant resident, how to catch bait and where to find redfish when the weather heats up. Adam has gone on at least a dozen fishing charters or “classes” since our first trip last October and this is the first photo I’ve ever taken.
High heat, above average water temperatures and abundant bait for redfish make fishing in Charleston waters challenging during summer months.
Late July Fishing Trip with Brett
High heat, above average water temperatures and abundant bait for redfish make fishing in Charleston waters challenging during summer months. Fortunately, Brett was willing to leave the docks at Shem Creek at daybreak before the heat kicked in. The early start helped make Brett’s introduction to fishing in Charleston a success.
Round 2 Charleston redfishing
On their return trip the redfish treated them right. When we first met in the early spring the tide was rising and the wind was was out of the SW at 20, the conditions were tough to say the least. We worked hard and got a few. Second go around, just the opposite. Perfect, the tide was falling and wind light and variable, the bite was on.
