Spring 2014

The waters around Kiawah Island are starting to warm and the fishing will be more productive as the waters continue to warm from a very cold winter season. We are catching sheepshead around docks and pilings whenever we target them and that pattern will continue all year inshore. The warmer the waters get, the more varieties of fish can be caught. Sharks will be inshore soon as well as many other species. Baitfish, such as mullet and menhadden, will be arriving and the fish will be targeting these for food. Fishing with live or cut shrimp in the spring can land a mixed bag of fish from Sharks to Reds. Fishing along the shorelines is best for reds and trout while out in the deeper waters for sharks and rays.

Winter 2014

We have fished every month this winter in a variety of conditions both inshore and  the nearshore reefs. We have had many trips with few fish caught but we have been able to land something each time out. The cold water temps have made for some tough fishing. Many times we have seen fish but they would not eat anything we tried. Once the waters started warming, those same areas and schools of fish have started eating again.  The Kiawah River fishing will only get better as the waters warm.

Fishing on the  nearshore reefs just off the coast of Kiawah Island has not been what it has in the past years.  We have caught something each time out, but normally the bite is steady all day out there on the reef. Black Sea Bass, Sheepshead, Redfish, Rock Bass have made up our catches and the Weakfish, Black Drum, Spadefish will be on the reefs by the end of spring. Cobia may show up depending on how fast our waters warm but will be here by May or June.

Fall Fishing 2012

The fall bite is in full swing. The water temps are starting to cool and we are catching some really nice fish lately. There are still some sharks but they will be departing soon, The large redfish have been on the reefs as well as weakfish, black sea bass, black drum and flounder. Inshore, the trout and sheepshead bite has been pretty good. The bite will get better as the waters continue to cool. The creeks are holding lots of shrimp and mullet, so catching bait has been pretty easy to do.

Summer 2012 – Kiawah


Fishing has been good all summer. The trout populations seemed to have returned this year. We had a mild winter after suffering from several very cold winter months in years past and killed off a lot of our trout. We have caught more trout this summer than all of last year and the fall fishing should even be better. Sheepshead are biting again in the late summer and like the trout, the fall is the best time to catch them. Shark fishing will be winding down soon but we have had many good trips with multiple catches of good sized sharks this summer. Redfishing has been decent but the sizes have been small where we are catching them. There are plenty of shrimp and mullet in the creeks so catching bait has not been a problem either.

The reefs off our coast have been very productive all summer. One of the reefs we fish is full of black sea bass. Drop down a line and catch one on whatever bait you choose. Other reefs seem to have a more varied catch such as flounder,redfish, black drum, sheepshead, spadefish,weakfish, bluefish and ladyfish. With cooler water temps coming in the fall the fishing will be even better.
