    What Experts are Saying About January Fishing on Hilton Head Island

    A new year and barring any severe weather great fishing should continue!

    We are so blessed here with many days reaching the 70's and sometimes 80 degrees in winter. Trout fishing has been great this season, getting a limit of ten per person has been easy a lot of days. They are hitting almost any artificial you throw at them and live bait is always good.

    Reports of large "gator" trout are common and large flounder seem to be more plentiful. Redfish are with us year round and this time of year can be caught inshore and offshore. While artificials will work in the creeks for the redfish, cut mullet, live mud minnows and shrimp will all but guarantee some lively action. Fishing around docks and oyster beds on either side of low tide seems to be the best method for these battlers.

    Sheepshead fishing around the docks and old pilings is also great this time of year. Live fiddlers and clams the favorite baits of choice for these convict striped fish. Master bait thieves you have to be vigilant for the ever so subtle strike. Not many fish can top the sheepshead for table fare, which has earned them the nickname "river snapper".

    Sheepshead can also be caught at the nearshore reefs but black sea bass pose a problem in winter. Also hard to beat for the table the black sea bass are out of season this time of year and while you can literally catch hundreds on a trip now, but…you have to release them all.

    While many over slot reds are being caught in the creeks the really big boys will be off the beach. This time of year searching for the gannets diving on bait schools will help you locate the bull redfish. Once you locate them place squid, menhaden or cut mullet beneath them and hold on! Averaging 30 plus pounds look for at least two or three if not more scorching runs out of these guys.

    One other option this time of year is up the Savannah River. In late December and January the striped bass run up the freshwater rivers and offer a rare treat for those that seek them. Trolling big Cisco Kids or similar lures along the banks with stout tackle can produce fish twenty pounds and up. Be careful of large ships passing as the deep draft of these ships will pull the water six feet or more from the bank. All in all there is plenty of good fishing this time of year, so don't put those rods away!

    Celebrate the Super Bowl at Palmetto Dunes

    The teams are set -- it’s the amazing comeback Seattle Seahawks versus the perennial favorite New England Patriots for Super Bowl XLIX Feb 1. Here at Palmetto Dunes on Hilton Head Island, we’ve got some fun activities you can enjoy before, during and after the Big Game.

    Super Bowl Golf Tournament

    Before the Big Game, kill some time by joining our Super Bowl Golf Tournament at the Robert Trent Jones course Feb.1, the morning of the game, at 9 a.m. It will be a shotgun start and four-person team scramble format. The cost to play is $45 per person of $180 per team, and your registration includes not only the tournament, but beer and snacks, as well to get your day off to a “super” start. Sign up to play.

    Game Day Specials at Big Jim’s Restaurant

    After you’ve ideally won the Super Bowl golf tournament, head direct to the restaurant on the course, Big Jim’s, where we’ll be serving game day specials and have our eight big screen TVs tuned to all things NFL football. Enjoy an all-you-can-eat BBQ buffet for $12.99 per person and drink specials like $15 domestic buckets and 2 for 1 craft beers.

    Score a Golf Deal

    Whether your team wins or loses, you’ll still “score” a deal the day after the Super Bowl with our golf special. Book your tee time and pay only the winning team’s score on Feb. 2 at the George Fazio course. Here’s hoping it’s a low scoring game :).
