Beaufort, SC Fall Fishing Report 2015

It was another amazing Fall season here in the Low Country of Beaufort, SC! September, October, and November have always been 3 of my favorite months to fish. As the air and water temperature start to cool down, the fishing starts to heat up! With lots of fiddlers and shrimp roaming around the shallows the redfish, trout, and flounder turn on to a feeding mode getting ready for a long cold winter. Here is a short report with a few photos from this fall.

Sight fishing Low Tides and Flood Tides proved to be some of the most exciting fishing scenarios during the fall season with Fly and Light Tackle Anglers. Watching a school of 60 Redfish tailing, chasing shrimp, and cruising up and down the mud flats simply cannot be beat! The flood tide fishing for tailing reds in the grass was some of the best I’ve seen this year with many incredible days on the spartina flats. We even had flood tide tailers all the way till the beginning of december this year which is rare with colder temperatures. This fall did bring in a lot of bad weather for October and November with lots of high winds and rain. Having to cancel multiple fly charters is not fun but part of the game as a full time fishing guide.

Light tackle fishing was also on fire this fall with plenty of days full of redfish, trout, and flounder. Using artificial, top water, and live bait while fishing rising and falling tides provided plenty of high number days. The redfish bite was pretty regular this season but it was great to see the speckled sea trout make a come back after a slow season last year! Had quite a few days when we caught too many trout to count. My new 22ft Pathfinder Bay Boat has been a great addition to the fleet and a fun boat to take 4-5 anglers out. Not to mention still being able to fish a large area of water in rough conditions.

The cast n blast season this year was also another great one for the books! Absolutely incredible how healthy our Clapper Rail population is, tons of birds around! Such a fun trip being able to shoot birds then catch fish. My personal favorite is fly fishing for tailing redfish on the incoming tide then shooting birds, then fish tailing redfish on the falling tide. Simply cannot beat the Low Country Cast N Blast! Till next season!
