Fall is a special time for sportsmen in the Carolinas, and it has managed to shine through all the weather we’ve had this year, including two hurricanes. Fish are biting, and most hunting seasons are open. There were repairs this year that had to be placed in front of the honey-do list, but occasionally sportsmen need a break — even in the worst of times — and the fish and game cooperated.
The odd weather that has been prevalent in the Carolinas this year has continued into the fall. After rain and heat through the summer, Hurricane Florence backed into the east coast and wreaked havoc from Cedar Island, N.C. to Cape Romain, S.C.
Fall is the absolute best season in the Carolinas. It begins in September, lasts into December and brings some of the prettiest weather and nicest temperatures of the year. Sportsmen have multiple opportunities to fish or hunt and can even do both, with high expectations of success, in the same day.
