It's hot. Like 112 degrees in the shade hot! Feels like that anyway. Which means the water is hot. 82-86 degrees in Charleston harbor and surrounding waterways and as hot as 90 degrees in the small creeks! Bad for fishing, right? WRONG! When the water gets this hot, the O2 content drops and the fish have to find cooler, more oxygen rich water. So catch your live menhaden and buy some live blue crabs. You're gonna need these baits! Get in some creeks with deep corners and put some baits on the bottom! Your bound to find some heavy redfish that are trying to cool down!
