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,

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!

Charleston Winter Reds

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.

The Redfish are Biting

Finding redfish during spring months is half the battle.

Redfish Action Returns as Shallow Waters Warm

The water temperature in the intracostal waterway between Mount Pleasant and Isle of Palms has been above 60 degrees for the past 10 days. I’ve run early morning and afternoon fishing charters for the past week and the redfish bite has been improving every day.

Finding redfish during spring months is half the battle. Redfish eating habits have been a bit finicky.  I pushed into a school of hundreds of reds and threw everything at them – live minows, crab, soft plastics, top water lures, the whole tackle box – and not a single bite! While stalking redfish this week I saw multiple schools of shrimp, blue crab and mullet so reds have a diverse menu.
