Fishing has been great lately as most charters produced good catches of Redfish, Trout and Flounder. We are still landing Big Bull Redfish and Sharks in the deeper holes around the channels and inlets. We have been targeting other species like Spanish Mackerel, Bonita and Sheepshead as opportunities present themselves. With largely cooperative weather and tides the fish are feeding heavily on shrimp, mullet, menhaden and blue crab. This is the time of year that the fish readily take artificial and natural baits as they actively feed before the bait begins to head offshore for winter. We have been focusing on fishing the flats on the lower ends of the tides to capitalize on the Redfish as they begin to school up. On the moving tides we are focusing on Speckled Trout and Flounder which are hunting prey near creek mouths and drop offs. Try this method for a change if you haven’t done it already. Rig a #2 circle hook with a split shot about 15 inches above the hook. Bait up with a live minnow or shrimp and cast it up current of your target and let it drift. Repeat that process until you get a hit. If it doesn’t happen in a dozen casts it’s time to target another spot. There are plenty of ways to put fish in the boat and this is just one of them. If you want to explore other methods or book a trip feel free to give me a call at 843-696-4231 or email me here at the website. In the meantime enjoy the pictures of happy anglers from some of our most recent charters!
