Wintertime and cold weather brings many fishing opportunities to us here in Charleston and the surrounding waters.. The redfish have schooled up into the mud flats and can be found in large groups in the hundreds.. These fish go into shallow water to stay on the warm mud and hide from their predators such as the dolphin. This gives us a great sight fishing opportunity with the clear water and large groups of fish. Sheepshead, black drum, and redfish can also be found on nearshore wrecks just off the beach and can make for a great day on the bigger water.
