Fall is definitely my favorite time of year! Halloween, Deer Season, Dove Season, Duck Season, and Fishing Season! There is less traffic on the water, the water and air temps are beginning to cool down, and just about everything except sharks is biting better than it has since March! The schooling reds are beginning to do their thing and the big trout move in from the ocean. It's the "perfect storm" of fishing in the Lowcountry so to speak. The trout will be easy to target on jig heads with grubs or shrimp under a Bomber Paradise Popper. I like to use 25 pound floro leaders for the trout but that's just me. The trophy trout are a little harder to target with consistency. Best to see your local guide about that one;) The big bull reds are still here in October and early November until the first good cold snap. The big bulls will be eating menhaden and whole big live mullets. The trout will eat Hell Razor Rattlin' Jig Heads with Bomber Mud Minnows in new penny and purple with a chartreuse curly tail. I still have some days open in October and November if you want to come see how it's done!
