Visiting Charleston on their honeymoon, the Cornwell’s joined me for a morning on the water. Brilliant sun and light winds made for excellent conditions and the bite was on as soon as we stopped at the first flat. We slowly worked from school to school of redfish catching a couple before moving to the next. The charter was supposedly just for Chad but even his wife got into the act! Caught a total of eight redfish including one in the slot with the rest between seven and twelve pounds.
Leaving under the cover of darkness, we rolled up on a flat where we could barely make out the shell rakes. At dawn, you could see the backs and tails of redfish as they busted shrimp. Lobbed in half a blue crab and a 7lb. red was on before I could even put the rod in a holder. Bite was so strong during the falling tide we could barely keep one bait out at a time and caught reds up to 10lbs. Once the tide turned, the fish were more hesitant and we had lots of pickups and drops but still kept putting fish in the boat. Awesome morning!
