Inshore bite warms up in the cold Lowcountry

Beaufort - Saltwater Fishing Report

Our water temps continue to drop as we have had a number of cold fronts come through the last two weeks. Fishing is beginning to heat up for Speckled Trout, and inshore Redfish. Have had several trips with good success catching some nice slot Redfish, and good sized trout. I have mostly been using mud minnows, either under a popping cork, or on a carolina rig. I like 1/4 ounce jigheads with soft plastics this time of year for trout in the deeper creeks. The trout will stack up in these creeks as the water continues to cool off. Soft plastics, like the Norton Sand Eel, Jr. will produce lots of fish when fished slowly. I like to let the bait sink to the bottom, then dance it up with a couple of flicks of the wrist, and then let it settle. Be sure to take up your slack after you jig the bait, so you have a tight line as you watch the bait settle back to the bottom. These fish bite light, and line watching can be the key to hooking up more often. High Vis Braid is great for this type of fishing. You can see it easily, and feel even the lightest tick.
