go scroll down and looks at my previous posts- I live in Chesapeake, VA but still travel home to SC on long weekends to fish....I wouldn't invest that much to skunk- there is a creek in my backyard right now.
winter in SC inshore- speckled trout and reds- reds are more tolerant of the cold, a few flounder (some of my fellow kayak fisherman have been getting them)
FW- blue cats are known for being active in the winter. Santee Cooper lakes are a good bet. Some quality LM bass will also be taken in the winter. I knew of an elder gentleman who exclusively fishes Santee Cooper lakes for bass in the winter- he says fish are still generally active on warmer days and far less boat traffic.
I now almost exclusively kayak fish or boat bum around.
In the meantime, I am trying to figure out this Northwest River yellow perch and crappie deal.
