Why Redfish is a Must-Catch on Your Hilton Head Fishing Trip

Redfish are a cornerstone species for any angler visiting Hilton Head. Known for their resilience and distinct copper-bronze bodies, Redfish offer a thrilling challenge with great rewards.

Behavior and Habitat

Redfish thrive in the shallow, muddy waters typical to Hilton Head’s marshes and estuaries. They are most active during the fall, making it the best season for Redfish fishing.

Fishing Techniques

Sight fishing is particularly effective for Redfish due to their tendency to feed in shallow waters. Anglers often use soft-bodied lures, spoons, and live bait to attract these robust fighters.

Culinary Delight

Apart from the sport, Redfish are highly prized for their firm, tasty meat, making them a favorite catch for those looking to combine fishing with a delicious meal.


Catching Redfish is more than just fishing; it's an essential part of the Hilton Head experience. Whether for sport or supper, Redfish should not be missed on your fishing adventure here. Join a charter and experience the joy of Redfish fishing firsthand!
