The Charleston, SC RedTrout is one of the largest in the Cystic Fibrosis RedBone series. This year we had 64 anglers fishing with 32 of the finest Guides in the Lowcountry. A large high pressure moved in as the tournament began and significantly turned off the shallow water bite. With only 2 redfish caught total the first day OTF, it was anybody’s game as Guides struggled to find happy fish. My two anglers were a dedicated fly fisherman, and another who had never caught a fish OTF. We were able to stay shallow longer than the rest of the pack as we fished the flood tide in the morning and the extreme low tide midday. We finished Sunday with 6 reds, two on a double header while beating second place with 4, and tied third place with only one. The angler with zero experience also boasted the largest red on the fly of the tournament.
