Oct-Dec 2009: Trout and Redfish bite was great!! Had many great groups on board with plenty of action for all. Many days with 30+ fish….love Fall fishing! Live shrimp, minnows and cut mullet were productive and still readily available early on and as the water cooled off (quick this year!) we went mainly to artificials with plenty of fish being caught on DOA’s and gulps. Once a school of redfish was located it was a fish every cast…mainly slot size fish but many 27-30in fish too. Did some sheepshead fishing and the bite was outstanding! Caught on fiddlers, oysters and live shrimp. Weather has been less than desireable and unusual for Charleston since Thanksgiving it seems. Haven’t hit 60 degrees in 3 weeks now….what’s going on??

Trout and redfish are moving real slow now with the water temps in the mid 40’s but still hanging on. Keeping my fingers crossed that the trout will make it through the Winter without a big fish kill but so far they seem to be fighting it out. Ready for Spring and some warm weather to move back in!
