Found great fishing all morning underneath sunny skies and light winds. Mud minnows and popping corks were the ticket. Redfish up to six pounds were mixed in with legal sized trout. Fall fishing continues to be great!
The charter began as the tide just turned and started falling. Fished the duration of the trip with popping corks and mud minnows. Wherever we could find current and bait, the corks kept dropping as reds and trout kept hitting. Highlight was this 8lb red that ate so close to the boat we could literally see it rise up and inhale the minnow!
Fishing had been steady out of the gates with lots of smaller reds and trout. All that changed quickly when Mark’s cork dropped and the drag started humming! What I thought would be a nice redfish made us all do a double take when it turned out to be a 22″ trout. One of the biggest so far this year. Great job!
Ray came to town for his 9th trip during which we fish three days in a row. Once again the weather cooperated and more importantly so did the fish! Caught a full mix of reds, trout and flounder. His son, Adam, joined us for the first time and showed that it was in the family blood as he caught reds up to 12lbs!
As part of a birthday celebration, Shar and Char joined me for a morning on the water. A lower than forecast tide gave us an extra hour on the flats. Things slowed down and as I picked up a rod to make a move, it whipped over. A few minutes later Shar had a 29″ red in her lap. Happy birthday!
Hey now! Team Aquifer reunited for our annual fishing trip as Bob and Erin were eager to continue the tradition. The fish proved finicky in front of an incoming storm system. Nontheless, we pushed on and caught our usual mix of redfish and trout. Pour one for Jesus!
Having never caught redfish before, Tim and Sam started out with a bang! The pair simultaneously landed two solid 11 pound reds while dodging each other, dock pilings and exposed rocks. Hard to top that experience but we continued the day with more reds and legal trout that hit mud minnows under corks. Great job guys!
Wind, wind, wind as the cold front sits upon us. Headed to the docks to take cover. Turned out to be a great call. Big reds smoked cut mullet especially once the water starting falling. Had to dial the drags down as tight as possible to even stand a chance. Heaviest of the day came in at 14lbs! More productive Isle Of Palms fishing charters.
Even with winds cranking at 20+ from the NorthEast, we still ran more Charleston fishing charters! Hunkered down in a creek and caught small black drum on cut frozen shrimp. But the real story was the rods fished out the back with cut mullet. Every so often, one would crank over courtesy of a big redfish! Caught several of these with the biggest at 11 pounds. Grinding them out on a windy day.
