The Speckled Trout fishing is getting better as we slip into the cooler days of Fall in the Low Country of South Carolina. As always, Captain Kevin Blair of Charleston shares a simple, but highly effective way to fish for Specs.
Fall is here and the warmer temps remain. That means great fishing is still here. King Mackerel are all along the Carolina Coast and just off the beaches. Even lots of reports of Bluefish and Spanish are coming as well along with Albacore.
With the warmer water temps still with us for a while, the Redfish can become lethargic when it comes to feeding. They will tend to feed in short bursts with no rhyme or reason to the sudden bite and then shut off again.
Pushing the limits of their waders the ALL OUT Crew are fighting the relentless waves of the Crystal Coast to reach the schools of Red Drum that are feeding on the shoals spanning out from Cape Lookout!
For kayak anglers, targeting speckled trout falls into three main categories: trolling, casting artificial baits and drifting live baits. Trolling is a tested tactic starting in mid-September and tapering off by December.
While it’s possible to luck into a bragging-size trout now and then, catching trophies consistently takes skill and a thorough -knowledge of the fish’s habits and habitats. Three inshore experts who tally numerous heavyweights every year detail the secrets to their ongoing success.
