AHQ Report - Charleston

December 11

Inshore surface water temperatures in Charleston have dropped into the low to mid-50s, and water clarity is very good. 

The troutfishing continues to be outstanding in Charleston, and Redfin Charters (843-277-5255) reports

It won’t last forever, but peak season for bull red drum in the Charleston area is here.  Captain Tucker Blythe of Grey Ghost Charters (843-670-8629) reports that in the inlets, in the surf and around the jetties big drum are fattening up before they go offshore, and they are chomping on a variety of baitfish.  […]

Inshore: Haddrell’s Point (843-881-3644) reports that warmer water temperatures have the redfish schools feeding more actively again. Along the shallow mud flats cast a live mud minnow or a Savage Crab to schooling redfish. Sheepshead continue to feed on live fiddler crabs, clams, and oysters fished around bridge pilings and rock piles in 10-20 feet of water, […]
