Anglers targeting Winyah Bay redfish employ many different fishing styles and techniques that can be successful. One of the most popular methods is fishing with soft plastics. This type of fishing can be very effective, especially when redfish feed on smaller baitfish.
Fishing for Redfish
There are a number of different ways to fish with soft plastics, each with its advantages and disadvantages. Different situations call for different types of lure presentations.
One common method is to rig the soft plastic on a jighead. This allows the angler to fish the lure near the bottom, where redfish often feed.
Another popular method is to rig the lure on a weighted hook, allowing the anglers to fish the lure in mid-water, where redfish often feed on baitfish suspended in the water column.
Finally, soft plastics can be rigged, weightless and fished on the surface. This is often an effective method when redfish are feeding on baitfish that are schooling near the surface.
