Ray and Marv came up from Florida for another three days of fishing. They had some specific goals in mind and we met them all! First day was for quantity and the duo landed 30-40 rat reds on mud minnows under corks. Second day was sight fishing on the flats where we saw tons of backs and tails crushing bait in the skinny water. These fish had a preference for cracked blue crab and we caught reds up to 9lbs. Third day was docks where we managed to dredge out fish up to ten pounds. A great run!
On a road trip from Washington, Nick and his friend Chad joined me for a couple of days on the water. Had beautiful sunny days with modest winds and these two really got after it! Played all parts of the tide cycles and found fish cruising in the grass at high tide and large schools on the flats at low tide. Whether the duo were working artificials, popping corks or fishing on the bottom, they caught redfish no matter what. See you guys again soon!
Great day on the water with Chelsea and Brendan who decided to give saltwater fishing a shot. They picked it up quickly and in no time we bringing fish to the boat. Caught a mixture of trout and reds including one that was tagged. Fish of the charter was Chelsea’s nice 20″ trout. Good job!
The Tipton family joined me for a half day charter and we weren’t sure what to expect post Hurricane Florence even though Charleston received very little rain. Well, it fished great! A dozen fish at the first spot as reds and trout alike hit mud minnows under popping corks. Most of the reds were of modest size and then one rod got smoked. After an extended battle, we landed this sweet nine pound red and it was truly a family effort. Great job!
With school having just ended, the Bowden family decided to make a fishing charter part of their vacation to Charleston. Apparently they packed plenty of good luck! Started with nine sharks and then went inshore. Caught redfish, trout and flounder under popping corks for a lowcountry slam. Great way to start the trip!
Katie booked a fishing charter for her birthday. What a day it was! Harbor was glassy calm and the bite was strong. Caught well over 25 sharks with four doubles all in three hours. Never had to move to another spot. Great job!
We left the dock under blustery Spring conditions with the tide quickly dropping out. Peyton was on a mission to catch his first redfish ever. We worked dock after dock with blue crab and mullet with several bites but nothing to the boat. At one of my favorite spots it was quiet until Peyton simply dropped a live shrimp over the side and got bit before it hit the ground! After a great fight, Peyton landed his first redfish and promptly put on a huge smile.
Another burst of Spring time winds pushed us into the creeks. It turned out to be great! We had blue crab and the redfish were very, very interested. Rods started to whip over so fast we eventually just went to using one rod only so we could keep up. Biggest fish of the day came in at 13lbs. Great job guys!
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!
