South Carolina Fishing Report

Big Reds

April 7, 2007

Spring brings great opportunities here in Georgetown, S.C. The rising water temps. really wake the fish up from their winter laziness. With relatively little to eat the reds dont have the option of being picky, and will usually eat anything that is presented without their knowledge. For some reason we catch more of the larger than average fish this time of year. Makes sense that a 2olb fish has to spend a whole lot more time feeding on grass shrimp and mud minnows to get full, than a 5lber does. Whatever the reason numerous shots daily at 15lb+ fish seem to be norm in April. These fish are hardly subtle, tailing in thigh deep water and making wakes like a submarine, but they are very sensitve to boat noise and fly lines waving around overhead. The new moon tides the week of April 17th will draw many of these oversize fish up into inches of water to stuff themselves on fiddlers, something they usually dont do later in the season, making for some outstanding action!!!
