Kiawah Island Creek Fishing Charter

3/27 had a double , morning trip was a quick 2.5 hour creek fish and my group caught 2 nice reds 10 and 11 pounds, and a couple of small sea bass.
Afternoon trip was a 1/2 day charter, we tucked up in some creeks to get out of the wind and my had some steady action with 8 black drum, 6 sheepshead, and 2 redfish ( 3 and 11 pounds)
3/28 I had two 2.5 hour kids fishing trips today, first trip had a big time with Emma and her Dad, main goal was to find some dolphins and catch a fish.  We found a playful pod of 6 dolphins that darted back and forth under the boat for about 20 minutes, then we went and caught a handful of small sheepshead around some docks.  2nd trip not a ton of action but caught 2 nice redfish ( 12 and 14 pounds).

Inshore Fishing Charter, Kiawah Island,SC

3/24 Cold and windy, tried to get the client to fish earlier with the better tide but they could only go in the afternoon with high water.  Cold front had just passed and we knew that fishing would be tough with 25-30mph winds but we gave it our best and only hooked 2 reds, lost one at the boat and they landed another one that was 10 pounds.  Cant wait for warmer weather H2O dropped to 55 today.
3/26 I had a 2.5 hour kids fishing trip out of Kiawah, still cold and windy but the kids boated 6 black drum, 3 small redfish and 2 sheepshead.
3/26 Capt Fuss ran our other boat out of Charleston today and took out a family from the upstate and they caught about a dozen trout, and a few reds and some bluefish.

Charleston Inshore Fishing Charters

3/19 Capt Colt ran the Maverick in Charleston on a fly trip, nice conditions but fishing was a little slow but they scratched out a few trout and redfish at the end.
3/21 I fished with an old friend from surfing and great dentist on james Island Dr. Chris Costa, the trip started out great with a steady bite of : reds, sheepshead and black drum.  The first 2 hours were great, but when the tide got up in the grass the bite shut down for us, but was a good day on the water to catch up with an old surfing buddy.
3/21 Capt Fuss ran a couple of fly trips on the Maverick on Kiawah.  Wind was up and overcast conditions made for a tough first trip with no fish on the fly, but conditions improved on the 2nd trip and they boated 2 reds on the fly and a couple more on bait.
3/22 All 3 boats in action today.  I fished a double out of Kiawah today, and both trip were good with a mixed bag on both, mostly redfish, with a few black drum and sheepshead mixed in, big fish was a 10 pound red on first trip and a 14 pound red on the 2nd.  Capt Fuss ran our other bay boat in Charleston harbor on a group bachelor party trip and caught about a dozen nice reds.  Capt Colt ran a fly trip South of Charleston and they saw a bunch of reds schooled up in shallow water ( 3 groups of 100 or more) but none would eat the fly.

Kiawah Island Fishing Charter

3/19 The Taft family was in town for spring break and they had a big group so had a good friend Capt John Irwin help me with a 2 boat trip.  The ocean was flat so we took the boys out to the reef and each boat caught about 100-125 sea bass each and a few other small bottom fish.  Decided to run inshore  for the last 45 minutes of the trip to get a few redfish, and boated a few reds between 6-8 pounds hanging around some structure.
