Redfish, Trout and a few Flounder hit the deck this week as warming temperatures and sunny days moved into Charleston. Those who wanted to cast artificials hooked up with DOA shrimp in the 1/4 oz size and Z-Man paddle tails in the 3.75 inch version. White and gold flake proved to be the best combination when casting these baits. Most bites came when the baits were paused after a hop on the bottom or a few twitches. There is no better time than now to learn how to use these tools to put fish in the boat. Anglers who preferred bait found fish with mud minnows under corks and Carolina rigged near oyster beds and docks when there was moving water, cracked crab and cut mullet worked best during slack tides. Each day more and more bait has been moving into our area so be prepared to fish a variety of techniques and location to make the best use of your time on the water. Better yet give me a call to set up a time to do a little fishing together. While you are thinking about your next trip, take a minute to check out some great catches!
