Charleston - Saltwater Fishing Report
The fishing in and around Charleston harbor has been red hot these past few weeks! Schools of Redfish continue to roam the shallow water flats and backcountry creeks searching for food during the warmer periods of the day. They have aggressively been feeding on shrimp, mullet, or Zman baits. The forecast is for clear skies and mild weather in the next coming few days providing for even more fishing opportunities.
For fly patterns , I have been using small merkin type crabs purple/black or black. purple Worm sliders are also working well.
David and Jathan caught their first ever redfish and then some!!
The trout bite continues to do well fishing the back creeks in the backcountry near areas with 4-6 feet of water. Look for the trout to be bunched up along oyster bar edges and sand sloughs with some current. Catches of 20-30 trout are not uncommon this time of year. Water temperature is the key here, pay attention to the time of day, the tide, and water temperature for greater success while trout fishing in the for trout in the backcountry.
I hope to see you on the water soon or call us to book your Fishing trip here in Charleston.
