Spring Break is almost here and Deep Sea fishing charters and Inshore Charter fishing in Charleston is producing some of our favorite sport fish. Deep Sea Fishing charters at the nearshore reefs and wrecks just off the beach have been catching Black Drum, Weakfish, Bluefish, Bull Redfish and Sheepshead. To catch Sheepshead we have been fishing over rocks, pilings and any kind of hard structure. Fiddler crabs and oyster meat have been catching the most fish. The tackle we have been using is a Carolina rig with a 10 inch leader and a #2 mosquito hook. Drop it down to the bottom next to structure and lift the weight about a foot off the structure. Wait for the soft quick tap and set the hook immediately. These guys are quick so be sharp and expect to go through some tackle in the process. Inshore fishing charters have been targeting Redfish, Speckled Trout and Flounder as they begin to feed more heavily in our warming waters. The Reds have been taking mud minnows, soft plastics by Z-Man and DOA, and cut bait such as mullet, crab and shrimp. Speckled Trout have been eating soft plastics by Z-Man and DOA, mud minnows and shrimp under corks and if you can find them menhaden live lined with a split shot into deeper holes in the channels. If you want additional information on tackle or techniques your favorite tackle shop will be happy to offer you the information that you need.
