Redfish and Sheepshead Fishing – Beaufort, SC

Saturday, April 7th, 2012

We have really had a warm winter season this year and it seemed as though most of the fish were as confused as we were, but we are finally getting into some more regular patterns and the fish have responded well. I spent a few days out on the wrecks this past week fishing for sheepshead and was well rewarded. Those sheepshead can really clean a hook off without detection but in the end we pulled quite a number of nice fish in to include a few sheepshead in the 10-12 pound range. Also on the wrecks we were catching black sea bass and a few summer trout. Moreover, over two days on the wrecks I sighted three separate cobia outside of the Port Royal Sound so they are moving in a bit early this year. On the inshore waters I have been doing quite a bit of redfishing and though for the most part March was overall poor, it has finally started to pick back up. The other day we caught 15 reds over a half day trip and it looks as though they are breaking out of the big schools and starting to feed more aggressively around the bars and grass edges. I have also seen quite a few bonnet head sharks showing up along with some trout and flounder. It looks like the summer fishing season is here so sharpen those hooks and lets get out fishing! Catch em Up. Captain Charlie

Beaufort Fishing Report – March Reds & Sheepshead

Saturday, March 17th, 2012

Overall the redfish around Beaufort have been a bit spotty over the past few weeks as many of the schools have been starting to break up. The schooling fish that we have been finding have been pretty spooky. Though spooky we have been ably to pull a few fish out of them with small gulps and flies. In fact, the fly fishing has proved to given us some of the best action with these spooky reds mainly because the flies are landing softly on the water and not alerting the fish. Moreover, it seems that many of the redfish are feeding on small crabs right now which is easy to match with a fly. We have also been catching some nice reds around the bars and grass edges using live bait. On the other end of the spectrum, the nearshore wrecks have been firing off with good numbers of sheepshead. Over most of the winter the black sea bass were so bad that it was near impossible to get a bait to the bottom for a sheepshead, but the sea bass have finally thinned out and the bite has been good and consistent. Until next time, Catch em Up! Captain Charlie

Beaufort, South Carolina Redfish

Beaufort, SC has some great fly fishing opportunities and some of the best action comes together during the spring and winter months. As the water temperature drops our water clarity becomes crystal clear, similar to the bonefish flats of South Florida. The best part about redfishing though is that they will readily take a well placed fly and are much more forgiving than those spooky “ghosts”. This time of the year we are generally looking for big schools of fish. Many schools will have a mix of different sized fish ranging from 2-10 pounds. For the most part we don’t need to make super long casts, but you do need to be accurate. If you can cast 50-60 foot of fly line relatively accurately you can catch these fish. When we are not chasing reds on the flats we are looking for them around the oyster bars and grass edges. I use a number of different flies, but my most productive pattern is simply a white deceiver or clouser minnow. Until next time, catch em up. Captain Charlie

Beaufort Fishing Report – Spring Redfish Patterns

Warm Winter Pushing Beaufort Redfish into Spring Patterns

I am sure that everyone can agree that it has been quite a mild winter. We had pollen falling in February and the water temperatures rarely dropped into the low 50’s. For the fish they don’t have a thermometer or the weather channel, but I do believe that they get thrown off balance when conditions are not normal. We really saw that this year with the fluctuating temperatures as one day the fish were moving in regular pattens and the next they seemed to be moving all over the place. As long as we don’t get a hard stretch of cold it looks like we are going to get into our spring patterns a bit early this year. Though we are still seeing nice schools of redfish they are starting to break up and move around more. We will start targeting the fish more around the shell bars and grass edges as the begin to feed again.
