Scott’s Fishing Report — September 8, 2014

reports scott spade school 01 Scotts Fishing Report    September 8, 2014

 

Inshore:

September brings a lot more than just college football to the table, especially here in the lowcountry. Shrimping season is set to start on the 12th, a great flounder bite is still going on, and the mullet run is very close to hitting its swing meaning the tarpon and bull reds will be on fire very soon! Flounder are still being found in solid numbers around the inlets and along rock piles using live minnows tipped on a Zman FlatZ jig. Trout are starting to finally produce some better numbers, though many of the fish are smaller juveniles this time of year. Reds have produced some awesome tailing reports from up in the grass on the current big moon tides using Zman Pop Shadz and GULP jerkshads. For tarpon, try fishing large live mullet or menhaden near the tips of the Charleston jetties and in between sandbars located around our ocean inlets and hold on!

Offshore:

Trolling reports the past week have indicated a surge in the wahoo bite offshore, with best numbers coming in from 130-250ft of water, though several nice hoos were reported from as shallow as 90ft. Decent numbers of sailfish have still been hanging around in 200-400ft, and the kings are being found in 50-80ft of water. Bottom fishing continues to produce some HUGE triggerfish and quality b-liners, with the better reports coming in from 75-90ft of water using cigar minnows and cut squid and jigging butterfly style jigs for grouper.

Scott’s Fishing Report — August 5, 2014

Inshore:

The silver king reigns in August! Yep, tarpon have begun to show up in good numbers recently and have been taking large live mullet, live menhaden, and cut baits fished around the tips of the jetties and around our inlets. Bull reds continue to provide solid action around the grillage and jetties as well, with numbers of Spanish holding just out side the jetties and inlets on the tidelines as well. Early mornings have produced some solid topwater action on trout and reds in the river, and some BIG flounder have hit the scales recently as big as 9lbs that were caught along rock piles on live minnows, live mullet, and jerkshads.

Offshore:

While Red Snapper season was a huge success with some huge ARS being caught, just beacause Red Snapper are closed again does not mean that there is not still some excellent bottom fishing to be had. Solid numbers of grouper in 100ft have been found on live baits as well as butterfly style jigs and vermillions have been numerous in 80-90ft on squid and cigar minnows. The trolling side of things is still producing a handful of mid-sized wahoo along the ledge with the scattered dolphin thrown in the mix. Sailfish have been a little hit and miss, with the better reports coming from 350-450ft.
