Last week, we talked about the Fall fishing ahead. This week, it looks like it’s here! The brief spell of Northeasterly winds has cooled the Debordieu water temperatures down about 4 degrees, and the fish are taking notice.
As predicted, the cooler water temps are providing that urgency for the fish along South Carolina’s coast to prepare for winter. From Myrtle Beach to Georgetown, the past week has given us some stellar fishing with different groups from around the country. It will be interesting to see what happens in the next few warm days as we approach the full moon.
The fish we have been catching all week have had empty egg sacks, so it appears that they completed their spawn on the last new moon. It is normal for speckled trout on South Carolina’s Grand Strand to have their final spawn of the year in September or October. While that may be the case, some of the fish seem to be building their egg sacks back which could lead to one more spawn prior to winter. This would be very promising to the local trout population if we can get through a mild winter.
If you want to get on some great fishing, the Fall is the best time of year for inshore fishing in South Carolina. This is my favorite time of year for inshore fishing as the trout and redfish are extremely active. Cooler days also allow for the fishing to be good throughout the day; so afternoons can be just as productive as the morning.
