Beaufort/ Hilton Head Fishing Report

Spottail Bass: Good. Captain Dan “Fishin’ Coach” Utley (843-368-2126) reports that most of the one year old redfish are over the 15 inch minimum and they are hungry, eating Gulp! Baits, cut mullet, and gold spoons on low water in small creeks around oyster beds. The larger redfish are also mainly still in the smaller creeks, with a few schools starting to show up on the flats. Bull drum are gone from the inshore areas and are out in the Port Royal Sound and the Savannah River rock piles. Soon they will be found schooling under the birds just offshore.

Trout: Captain Dan “Fishin’ Coach” Utley reports that the water is cooling and some speckled trout have been hitting plastics and Gulp! shrimp under a popping cork. Fishing the outgoing tide around creek mouths and oyster beds has been working. Most trout are undersized, but a few keepers are in the mix.

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

Hunting Island Pier (843-838-7437) reports that fishing has been slow off the pier. Despite a lot of people fishing only the occasional stingray has been caught.

    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.
