Beaufort/ Hilton Head Fishing Report
Trout: Good to very good. Captain Dan “Fishin’ Coach” Utley (843-368-2126) in Hilton Head reports that with the drop in water temperatures the trout bite has turned on. Before the very cold snap topwater lures in the morning were producing the biggest fish, and 1/4 ounce jigs with metal flake screw tails are also getting bites.
Spottail Bass: Coach reports that redfish are getting much more aggressive, and they are also starting to form large schools on the flats. Almost all of the juvenile redfish are in the slot right now and just right for the skillet!
No new report from Bay Street Outfitters (843-524-5250).
Offshore: No new report from Captain Wally Phinney (843-838-7437).
