  • Redfish, drum, trout there for the taking

    There are not a lot of people out there fishing right now, as even the most hardcore anglers have resigned themselves to either watching basketball or going to boat shows.

    This is winter in the Carolinas which means days continually pop up that are pleasant enough for fishing. And since there are still some fish out there, some folks are still trying.

    No one is catching them in the numbers we will see in a month or two, but I assure you all the fish haven’t fled to Florida.

    Quite a few reports continue to come in from people catching redfish in the shallows.
