Hilton Head Summer Fishing
Overall the fishing action around Hilton Head and Beaufort has been very good as we are starting to get to the end of the summer season. It seems that no matter where you go there have been an abundance of speckled sea trout, ladyfish and jacks. These fish have been hitting hard and fast. One of the biggest problems that I have had over the past few weeks has been keeping up on bait…with 2 anglers I have been going through 15 dozen shrimp a trip and still running out on a 4 hour trip! We are still catching a number of redfish, especially up on the short grass flats. While out last week we were seeing between 25-30 tailers a trip and were able to get shots at at least half of what we saw. These fish were taking both lures on light spinning rods and flies. The action out on the nearshore wrecks has slowed down a bit but there are still a number of bluefish, sea bass and spanish mackerel to be caught out there. I am sure that the wreck action will fire off here within the next month or so. Finally, the shrimping has been very good. We started in the deep holes early this year (almost a month early) and have been well rewarded with good sized shrimp in good numbers. Until next time, Catch em Up! Captain Charlie
