Hot Red Drum and Speckled Sea Trout fishing.
Red Drum Fishing along the South Carolina coast has been fantastic! Large Schools of Red Drum have gathered into groups and are packing on the pounds for winter. These fish know it’s time to take advantage of the shrimp before they begin to move out with the falling water temps. The shrimp and other baits will begin to leave the coastal estuaries around the first few frosts. We have had some epic sight fishing on clear calm days. Spotting schooling Red Drum in the shallows. Big Reds are often up on mud flats and shallow bars sunning and feeding durning the winter months. If you have never witnessed Red Drum crawling in shallow water or herding shrimp you need to add it to your bucket list. The few chilly mornings we’ve had have trigged the winter bite and as long as the weather stays mild fishing should remain very good.
Speckled Sea trout have been plentiful along South Carolina!
We have been catching really nice trout around the inlets and and back bays. Casting large surface and sub surface plugs and soft plastics. I absolutely love watching Big Trout crush a top water offering! I say it often, If you want to catch BIG trout then you need to be casting plugs, big ones! Both surface and suspending. Although you will not catch a lot of fish throwing large plugs you will often catch large female trout. Spring is just around the corner so fishing will only get better as bait and water temps begin to warm up. To find out more about Red Drum Fishing South Carolina give us a call.
