Beaufort/ Hilton Head Fishing Report

Spottail Bass: Captain Dan “Fishin’ Coach” Utley (843-368-2126) reports that the bull drum have arrived out in the Port Royal Sound, up by the 170 Bridge, off Harbor Town and around the docks on Spanish Wells. 20- to 40-plus-pound fish are eager to take cut baits on the bottom, with the best bite coming around high tide on both the incoming and outgoing tides. Creek red drum just under 15 inches are plentiful in small creeks around oyster beds, with some occasional large fish being caught in the same areas. Outgoing tide has been best, but be careful to get out of the creeks before they get too low.   Mud minnows and cut mullet have been the best baits.

Other inshore: Captain Dan “Fishin’ Coach” Utley reports that occasional flounder have been caught while fishing mud minnows around oyster beds, but trout are still few in number.

No new report from Bay Street Outfitters (843-524-5250) in Beaufort.

Hunting Island Pier (843-838-7437) reports that sharks and stingrays have been caught off the pier, but the most exciting catch has been a couple of very large bull red drum. One fish measured 47 inches.

    Do you have any good spots to go to find tailing red fish? I am looking for a nice flat spot that’s either accessible by kayak or withing walking distance to a parking spot? Also any recommendations for bait and tackle would be great too!!! Thanks.
