Have had some enjoyable days on the water lately! The water is getting quite warm and the best redfish and trout action is in the early morning and late evening when the fish are willing to eat topwater lures. We’ve had to resort to bait-fishing during the heat of the day. The flood tide fishing has been steady and we even had a couple of surprise days where the east wind gave us enough water to access the flat on marginal tides. The fish seem to really cooperate on those tides. The highlight from the last couple of weeks was Gilliam’s 24″ flounder caught on a giant live menhaden. Was excited to hear he is going to have it mounted by Hortman’s Wildlife Taxidermy in Pawleys Island. Jimmy Hortman is a good bud who does great work.
Keep an eye out over the next couple of weeks as our tarpon should really start to show up! Can’t wait.
