March Transition in the Lowcountry

Capt. Rick Percy
March 13, 2017
Beaufort - Saltwater Fishing Report

Oh the Ides of March. Comes in like a lion, goes out like a lamb. As the first part has proven itself, I sure hope the last part is on target. We have had a lot of high wind days, and our moon tides have made the water dirty to boot. But in spite of all that, we have still been able to pick up enough fish to make our trips worthwhile. Fished a couple of charters this past week, and was able to catch both Redfish and a few Seatrout. I have been fishing the higher water on the grass edges over oysters. Mud minnows under popping corks have produced better than anything else. Also have had a few good trips on Trout using Norton Sand Eels in the deeper creeks. As our water temperatures are now hovering in the 60 degree range, the trout are starting to move back out to the main river and can be caught in 6 to 8 feet of water. Not sure what the upcoming cold front will bring this week, but the only consistent thing in March is that every day is different. And you can't catch them sitting on the couch at home!
