Fishing Savannah, Hilton Head and Beaufort

april 3april 6 april 7 april 5 april 1Fishing the low country with fly and light tackle for 20 years. What a great great last couple of days !!  We actually have had light winds for 2 day in a row, and we get light winds with a first light low tide.  Oh Daddy  like !!!  A buddy of mine and I went looking for some trout with not much luck, but we did see and a ton of reds cruising the grass.  It’s funny how after so many years of red fishing I love catching trout.  A  light spinning rod rigged with a 1/4 ounce DOA shrimp and I’m loving it.  I wasn’t loving it the other day though.  Not even a bite from a trout.  There are some decent trout reports about town, but dag nabit not even a bite !  So we had to catch some reds.  Water temps are climbing fast that means triple tail and cobia will be arriving happy and hungry !award

It’s that time of the year when numbers are good for sight casting nice schools of fish.   John Kennedy and his son John headed out with me and what a good time on the water we had.   As we began our day we poled all over the flat not finding a single fish.  The longer this went on the more I began to stress.  Due to this flats remote location I had no fall back in case I couldn’t find them.  Well after an hour of looking we hit major pay dirt.  John’s son had never caught a red before and, he managed to nail four on the spinning rod and larger size John nailed four on the Buggy Whip.  Then We put large size John on the pole and I had the chance to catch a couple of reds.10 fish sight casted to, not a bad day.  We have had some neat fishing at low water lately,  I have seen some nice fish belly crawling,With their backs out!  Not often do I see the pattern in  Dec. Jan.  and some nice tailing action on the low water as well.  I guess with the moderate temps the bait is shallow hence the pattern. The evening turned out to be awesome and we had a beautiful run back to Savannah with a incredible sunset to cap off the day.  The trout bite continues to be strong with non stop action going on.  If at first you don’t find them bounce around a bit.  If you don’t get bites soon, move. Trout will smack something if they are there.
