"December is a great month for fishing in the lowcountry. Winter is just beginning to settle in and we still have some of those seventy degree days. Water temperatures are perfect for redfish and sea trout. Large schools of hungry redfish in the three to twelve pound range gather in the shallows of the bays and waterways. They are very willing to eat live, cut, and a variety of artificial baits. Sightcasting to these schools is the most popular method of catching redfish this time of year.
Sea trout or speckled trout as they are also called, love the cool December mornings. Furious rod bending action can be expected this time of year can be expected from this great gamefish. These fish can be caught on live shrimp under a cork or casting and trolling artificial lures such as small soft plastics and some good suspension baits.
I have been catching good numbers of redfish especially on live bait at the lower tides. The sea trout have also been cooperative on live shrimp and my clients have taken many fish on artificials.” - Capt. Chuck Griffin, Aqua Adventures LLC.
