Charleston Winter Fishing

Charleston’s winter redfishing is one of the most underrated fisheries in the country. When most people think fishing, spring, summer, and fall come to mind… but what about winter? Clear waters, mild temperatures and big schools of redfish make winter one of my favorite times to fish in the Lowcountry.

As the temperatures fall and the shrimp and other food sources move out redfish begin to gather into their winter schools in the clearing waters. By December some of the schools have grown to as many as 200+ fish and the water can be gin clear. Hundreds of fish in shallow clear water bring some of the best sight fishing opportunities of the year. Whether your throwing fly or plastics there is nothing like watching a fish break off of the school, engulf your fly or lure!
