Been hitting the Hilton Head and Beaufort area for some great fly fishing for reds and cobia as of late. Today we looked for cobia with perfect conditions, and found what we were looking for. This was the first cobia for me and my customers for the season and I was pumped. Firstt cast, a bit short, second a little off the third cast was on the mark, this fish was between 40 and 50 lbs and was hungry for the fly! Only problem as soon as the fish was getting ready to eat a f-18 comes booming over head and spooked the S..t out of the fish. Better luck tomorrow. On a brighter note we have had some great red fishing on the fly around Beaufort I have added a few pics hopefully some cobia pics soon.
Well the stripers didn’t like we had this fall but after a long winter they decided to head a little further down river with some much needed fresh water. We have been catching smaller fish with a few bigger ones landed by other captains, I hear, ya know how those stories go. Been catching them on sinking lines and a variety of swim lure around the Port Wentworth area. Mainly the bridge.
