Now is the time to book your Inshore Fishing Charter in Myrtle Beach SC For The Big Bull Red Drums!
The redfish bite has been up and down with the dirty water we had from the hurricanes that been passing offshore and the rain that we have been getting the last few weeks. The water is starting to clean back up and the reds seem to be biting much better last week. The Big Bull Redfish are here at the Little River Jetties and we are catching them on carolina rigs with circle hooks and short leader with live mullet. The mullet is thick at jetties. And there are big school of pogies just off the beach. We should start seeing the redfish in the schools of pogies very soon. The redfish bite will continue to get better over the next few weeks here in October.
Redfish spend the first five years of their lives in the estuary system into which they are born. As they become sexually active at about five years of age Reds move from the rivers and creeks to open ocean waters. These adult Redfish are called Bull Reds. Bull Reds spend the rest of their lives, up to 50 years, in the ocean except for about two months each fall and spring. During these times they return to inshore and near shore haunts where they grew up and spent their pre adult years. Bull Reds prefer sounds, inlets and the mouths of ocean creeks. They will return to the same sand bar year after year, meaning if you catch one there will be others in the same spot in future years. The big fish will bite for another 6 weeks depending on how fast the water temperature drops in October.
The fishing technique is simple, anchor the boat or drift a Carolina rig with a 2 to 3 ounce weight with a 50 pound floralcarbon leader about 3 to 6 inch long with 7/0 circle hook . I like to use Penn Battle II 5000 reel with 30 pound Spiderwire Camo Braid with a top shot of 40 pound Berkely ProSpec and Penn Battalion 7’ medium action rod. Tip the circle hook with a live Menhaden, live Mullet or cut Mullet. Fishing around the change of tide either high or low when the tide is moving the most the bite will be at it best!
Remember when fishing around the Jetties In Little River South Carolina that both jetties are in South Carolina and the size limit there has to be in between 15 to 23 inches. While the North Carolina limits is 18 to 27 inches you cannot keep a redfish over 23 inches there…So if you are fishing the North Carolina South Carolina State Line be careful of what size and number Red Drum you may have in the boat.
All Bulls should be released unharmed.
Many anglers choose to release the fish they catch. However, sometimes fish are so injured by the catch that their odds of surviving back in the water are poor. Here are some tips to improve their chances of living to fight another day.
Keep the fight short by using heavier tackle
Use a circle hook or crush the barb on a J-hook to avoid injuring the fish.
Never keep a fish out of the water longer than you can hold your breath.
The slime that covers a fish protects it from infection, so use wet hands or gloves when you handle the fish. A dehooker lets you remove the hook without touching the fish.
Never dangle a fish by its jaw, and always support its body with your hands.
