November 19

Morning surface water temperatures are down to about 63 degrees around Hilton Head.

October 7

Morning surface water temperatures are down to about 79 degrees around Hilton Head, and with rain the last few days (as well as monster tides) the water has gotten muddy.  Finger mullet are everywhere from the ocean to all the rivers and creeks, and by next week rain should have pushed bait down the rivers and the tides will be weaker – allowing for easier netting. 

Even though there is a ton of bait around fishing conditions have been pretty crummy this week, but Captain Kai Williams (843-816-7475) reports

September 30

Morning surface water temperatures are down to about 81 degrees around Hilton Head, and with all the recent rains the Broad and Chechessee Rivers are both very stained until you get to the sounds.  There is still tons of bait around.

The most exciting development around Hilton Head this week is with the bull red drum, and Captain Kai Williams (843-816-7475) reports

September 17

Morning surface water temperatures are only down to about 84 degrees around Hilton Head. There are tons of shrimp around. 

There’s other stuff biting around Hilton Head right now, but by far the most exciting action is for tarpon. Captain Kai Williams (843-816-7475) reports

September 2

Morning surface water temperatures are still about 85 degrees around Hilton Head and the water is still relatively clear. 

The most exciting new development around Hilton Head is that the bull redfish are really showing up, and Captain Kai Williams (843-816-7475) reports

August 26

It’s been a pretty good couple of weeks around Hilton Head, and Captain Kai Williams (843-816-7475) reports

August 6
