So it's been a very long and hot summer thus far. It started out with a bang. Tons of really big reds in the harbor and at the jetties and lots of fish in the creeks as well. Then the temp started going up and didn't even think about stopping. Now the water is hovering between 85 and 88 degrees. The big reds are still on the rocks out front but you'll have to weed through the big sharks to catch em. The preferred bait right now is still big menhaden that can be caught in the rivers and around Ft. Sumpter. The waterways and rivers are still holding a few trout, redfish, and flounder. It's just a little hit or miss as to weather or not they will bite. If possible, make sure you take some blue crabs for the redfish and some live shrimp for the trout. As soon as the conditions begin to change again, check back for another update. Till then, get yo but off the couch and go fishing!
