Fly Fishing Tactics in Beaufort, SC


Beaufort has some great fly fishing opportunities and some of the best action comes together during the 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. I use a number of different flies, but my most productive pattern is simply a white deceiver. If fly fishing is your thing give me a call. Until next time, catch em up. Captain Charlie

Sight Fishing For Redfish in Beaufort, SC

Some of the best red fishing of the year comes together in march, so as I power my boat off of the trailer on a crisp mid March morning my hopes are high. Winter fishing for my generally means sight fishing from the poling platform…can it get any better. As I pull into my first spot I see the bottom of the shore line get up and move in unison, oops I guess that I wont see that school of fish again I say to myself as I climb up onto the platform. It doesn’t take long however to find another school of fish and what a school it is! There must be 200 plus fish here packed together in a tight ball like bait. We start firing lures with spinning gear over them and both my buddy and I hook up immediately. This goes on for twenty minuets or so until a local dolphin has plans of his own and literally “crashes” the party. What can you do the dolphin have to eat too. At the end of the day we totaled 12 reds…not too bad for a chilly winter fishing trip. to hear more fish tails contact me at beaufort sport fshing and lets get out to do some fishing!

Redfishing Excellent on the Shallow Flats

beaufort fishing report - redfish on the fly rodWe have seen some really nice sight fishing conditions over this past week and getting out redfishing has been really good. We spent a few days throwing soft plastics on the flats to the schools of reds. Many of the schools were in pretty tight balls and eating overall well. We also had a nice day with the fly rods, taking some big reds. One fish was pushing 10 pounds… nice catch on the fly! Also I have a new video out on youtube that shows a really nice school of fish up on the flats so check it out. Hopefully, the bite will stay strong. Until next time, catch em up! Captain Charlie
