  • In cold weather, redfish action...

    Temperatures in the 60s have been heating up the inshore waters of Brunswick County, and though the water is still relatively cold, the action on redfish is hot.

    “We’re poling to get to them in the tidal pools of the shallow creeks,” said Capt. Mark Dickson of Shallow Minded Charters. “They’ve been a little bigger lately. We usually see lots of fish in the 16- to 20-inch class this time of year, but lately we have been catching lots of fish in the 22-to 26-inch class with an occasional 30-incher mixed in.”
