Beaufort Shark Fishing

Monday, June 25th, 2012

Summer time offers us some excellent all around fishing and along with all of the fish we have had not trouble getting into toothy critters. Out on the wreck last week we hooked up a 200 pound hammerhead shark and put max pressure to break it off as we wanted to keep on cobia fishing. We have also been catching black tips in the 30-60 pound range and a number of nice duskies in the deeper waters of the Broad and Port Royal Sound. Changing gears we have been having a blast catching 20 plus pound bonnethead and black tip sharks in shallow water with light tackle spin and fly fishing gear! These sharks are powerful and fun and fun to catch for all anglers. Until next time, Catch em Up. Capt. Charlie

Beaufort Cobia Fishing Report

Sunday, May 27th, 2012

With summer upon us the temperatures are heating up and so is the fishing. I have been doing a little bit of fishing on the inshore waters for trout, redfish and flounder. Overall, the inshore bite has been fair to good. I say fair because the bite has been somewhat inconsistent. I have had the best success using live minnows under a popping cork around the grass edges, creek mouths and oyster points. Switching gears I have been spending some time on the offshore waters fishing some of the local wrecks and live bottom areas and the bite has been on fire! We have been live bait fishing and drift fishing to catch some really nice cobia. Mixed in we have been catching good numbers of bull redfish, black sea bass, porgies, snapper, grouper and sheepshead. The only thing that has been knocking us out has been the wind… not to mention two named tropical storms in one week and we are still in May. Until next time, Catch em Up!

Cobia Fishing

Sunday, May 13th, 2012

Beaufort, SC Cobia Fishing

We are in the middle of another cobia season here in the Beaufort and Hilton Head area. You can always tell when you go over the Broad River bridge and see 40 boats sitting on the rip. As it has been for the past two seasons the inshore cobia fishing is rather slow to say the least…I wonder if it has to do with everyone killing as many fish as they can while these fish come into the Port Royal Sound to spawn? For the past five years I have had a two fish per boat limit (rather than the state two per person) and now try to keep only the smaller males if possible. That aside, I have done some sight fishing in the river and found a few nice fish cruising over the past few weeks, but have done better over the offshore bottom areas. Offshore we have also been catching catching red snapper, sea bass, sharks among others.

Beaufort Fishing Report | Topwater Redfishing Action

Sunday, April 29th, 2012

Well it looks like we are well into spring and the fishing has been heating up along with the temperature! I have seen a dramatic change in the behavior of the redfish over the past few weeks. Fish that were schooled up are now breaking into smaller groups and singling off. The fish have also become much more aggressive on the bite and they are feeding quite heavily. Some of this probably has to do with the large amount of bait up on the flats. Flats that were void of bait are now holding everything from crabs to mullet to minnows which has created a fish buffet for the reds. Along with the redfish I have also been catching a few speckled sea trout, flounder and bonnet head sharks. One of my favorite ways to go after redfish this time of the year is on topwater baits. We have been walking zara spooks near the grass edges and catching some very nice fish! Some of the these fish are coming back 3-4 times to get the bait so be patient as it is very easy to pull a topwater lure away from a fish before he can get it down… this is especially true for a redfish as they are more accustom to feeding on the bottom. Until next time, Catch em Up! Captain Charlie

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

Saturday, March 3rd, 2012

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.
