Even fishing guides need to take a trip once in awhile so we headed down to South Louisiana in search of bull redfish. We were certainly not disappointed! The reds started around 3ft. and some broke 40". An amazing sight to see a fish so large take a popping cork in three feet of water. We'll be sure to make this a regular journey!

Found great fishing all morning underneath sunny skies and light winds. Mud minnows and popping corks were the ticket. Redfish up to six pounds were mixed in with legal sized trout. Fall fishing continues to be great!

With a very low negative tide, we started the charter fishing structure and rocks. We had some nice trout fishing mud minnows on the bottom. Tamisha really upped the game by landing this 14 spot beauty with a popping cork. As the water rose, we got up on the flats and had great action with jerk shad artificial lures rigged on flutter hooks.

Charleston Fishing Report - November 2017

Fishing in October was fantastic and we can expect November to be just as good, if not better! Chilly nights remind redfish and trout that they had better eat now or it will be a long few months ahead. Per usual, artificial lures become very effective as natural bait leaves our waters. Take advantage of sunny days and go catch a bunch of fish!

As water temperatures decline, redfish have begun their annual phenomenon of forming large schools. Schools of fifty redfish will become commonplace and they can grow as large as 100-150 in the depths of winter. These fish do become more wary this time of year and artificial lures can spook them on the flats. Instead of casting lures at the schools, we have been setting out as many as three lines with chunks of frozen mullet on #3/0 circle hooks. Eventually the redfish will find your bait and whip your rods over with some ferocious hits.

For trout, artificial lures rigged on a jighead are working very well. Trout hang together in pockets and when you catch one there will likely be others in the immediate area. Lures in darker hues of blue and gray are performing the best when paired with a 1/4oz. jighead. Remember to move your lure slowly as the fish are beginning to move slowly as well with the colder waters. Try to bounce the jighead off the bottom and wait until you feel the resistance of a striking fish.

Popping corks are still very effective for both redfish and trout. Live shrimp can be used with confidence now that the little bait stealers are gone. I’ll attach a two foot leader to the cork and a size 1 circle hook on the other end. Cast over oyster beds, along grass banks and at creek mouths and watch for that cork to dive under! It can be so hard to do but when that cork drops, reel the fish tight and let the circle hook do the work. A big hook set can sometimes rip the bait right out of the fish’s mouth.

See you on the water!

The Hamilton party joined me for the third morning this week with our sights set solely on big reds. We had a perfect low tide that would concentrate schools of reds on the flats. Once we posted up and put out chunks of cut mullet, the rods started whipping over! Sharon’s seven pound personal record was the fish of the charter.

The charter began as the tide just turned and started falling. Fished the duration of the trip with popping corks and mud minnows. Wherever we could find current and bait, the corks kept dropping as reds and trout kept hitting. Highlight was this 8lb red that ate so close to the boat we could literally see it rise up and inhale the minnow!

For after the end of the summer rush, we scheduled a fly fishing trip to Montana. Where to our surprise it snowed heavily for two of the four days and kept the temperatures in the 30s! With freezing hands, we still had quite an outing catching rainbow, brown and cutthroat trout. Had to put our waders and boots inside so they didn’t freeze at night outside. Never been prouder over the fish we battled for!

Started out the day hunting clean water and good current. Kept our popping corks rolling along with mud minnows underneath. Not much interest at the first two spots but plenty of happy fish at the third. Julie let her cork float way back in the current and it got hit hard! After a couple minutes of fighting the fish against the current, Julie had a four pound trout in the boat. Her new personal best – great job!

A couple months ago, Pierce and I looked ahead at the tide tables to pick the best summer evening to fish massive high tides. The wind was cooperating and we were all set to go. Until the water was well into the grass, we saw nothing until Pierce spotted a huge redfish tail sticking straight out of the water! One perfect cast later we had an explosive strike and a 28" red in the boat. Great job!

Fishing had been steady out of the gates with lots of smaller reds and trout. All that changed quickly when Mark's cork dropped and the drag started humming! What I thought would be a nice redfish made us all do a double take when it turned out to be a 22" trout. One of the biggest so far this year. Great job!
