Beaufort Fishing Report

The fishing has been heating up around Beaufort, SCĀ over the past few weeks! We have been catching a number of redfish, specks and flounder along with some nice ladyfish and bluefish on light tackle around the grass edges and oyster bars back in the estuary. Moreover, the redfish have been tailing up on the flats which has made for some excellent sight fishing on both spin and fly fishing gear. The cobia migration was overall pretty poor this past season and is now coming to an end…I guess that you really can’t go out and keep all of the big spawning fish year after year and expect the fishery to sustain itself (my opinion anyhow), but thats why I have had strict boat limits and been releasing the big females for years. I just wish that others would have been more responsible in that department!! In their place, we have been catching some really nice sized sharks plus a number of whiting and mackerel out in the deeper waters of the sound and I would expect to start catching more black drum and even larger sharks here soon as well. Thanks for reading and until next time, Catch em Up! Captain Charlie
