Feb. 1 2024 Winter Report

Inshore: Captain Patrick Kelly (843-962-3503) report that February should look a lot like January, and redfish will stay in tight schools. On the river flats they will be focused on avoiding dolphins, but in the clear conditions you should be able to sight fish for them and get some reaction strikes. Both live bait and artificials can catch fish. There should also continue to be a good bite around creek docks, as the population of redfish in the Beaufort area is clearly strong and structure seems to hold fish 12 months a year. As long as temperatures do not get super cold trout should continue to be caught in moving water on soft plastics fished on ¼ ounce jigheads, and if you can get live shrimp they will often work even better. There are also tons of juvenile sheepshead that can be caught inshore this month, while the bigger ones usually head out to the reefs or the deepest inshore structure to spawn.
