Scott’s Fishing Report — November 24, 2014

reports scott eight pound sheepshead 01 Scotts Fishing Report    November 24, 2014

Inshore:

Fall has the temps falling but the inshore bite rocking and rolling! Great reports of Sheepshead and strong trout numbers have been flooding through the doors recently. Great trout reports along shell rakes and hard bottom in 5-8ft of water using the NEW Trout Eye Jig heads and Zman PaddlerZ have been deadly, and of course a live minnow under a popping float is always a deadly and fool-proof. Fish for your sheeps around bridge pilings and the jetties right now in about 8-15ft of water using live fiddlers as well as you can also use live shrimp fished underneath a slip-float in these same areas. In addition to the trout and Sheepshead bites being strong, plenty of schooling redfish are moving onto the shallow water mud flats right now as the water temps drop and they look for places to bask in the warm sun. Use cut mullet, gold spoons, or a Zman Ultra Shrimp tipped with pro-cure scent for great success on these schooling redfish.

Offshore:

The handful of calm days in between the windy days has brought forth some great bottom fishing reports including strong numbers of large sea bass, vermillion snapper, triggerfish, and the occasional Mr Grouper. Most anglers have been having their best success in 70-110ft over live bottom areas using cut squid for the sea bass and triggers and using butterfly style jigs and live baits for the larger grouper. Trolling reports have only been a handful here and there but those that have been came back with some good sized wahoo right along the ledge in 150-200ft as well as some schools of blackfin tuna in the same areas. Troll small ballyhoo behind a 1/4oz sea witch for the blackfins, and a YoZuri Bonito plug or a large Iland lure with a medium ballyhoo behind it for the wahoos!

Scott’s Fishing Report — September 26, 2014

Inshore:

It has been said many times before, but if you can’t find something to do outdoors in the lowcountry this time of year you need to wake up! A stellar inshore bite is going on with fantastic reports of Sheepshead around the bridges using fiddler crabs, an awesome flounder bite around our inlets and rock piles using live minnows or a Zman PaddlerZ, and the bull reds are still crushing cut baits and live baits around the jetties! Further up the rivers we are seeing a solid trout bite on artificial shrimp fished under a popping float, and good numbers of schooling redfish can be found on the shallow low tide flats that will willingly take a chunk of finger mullet or a Gulp! Bait.

Offshore:

Flat calm seas and some stellar fishing has led many boats back out on the big pond recently. Closer to shore, Jack Bracewell of Eren’s Addiction Too fishing team reports an awesome king bite in 50-70ft of water live baiting over good live bottom, and even came back with a monster cobia in addition to great numbers of BIG kings. Further out, numerous boats did some high-speed trolling along the ledge this past weekend producing some solid wahoo action with fish in excess of 70lbs being brought to the scales. Bottom fishing continues to be strong during fall months, with great reports of vermillions and triggers coming in from 75-90ft and some nice grouper coming in from 100-140ft.

Scott’s Fishing Report — October 14, 2014

 

 

reports scott holding flounder 01 Scotts Fishing Report    October 14, 2014

Inshore:

It’s flat wide open for some flatfish right now! The local flounder bite has exploded the past couple weeks, with numerous reports of 15-25 fish per trip and some quality size as well. Live minnows or live mullet fished behind a Zman FlatZ jig have been slaying the flounder in 3-6ft of water along rock banks and creek mouths with a hard bottom. Trout numbers continue to be on the increase as anglers report back some decent reports of catching trout by slow trolling grubs (Trout Trick) for them, as well as some solid topwater action early in the mornings producing some large trout. Sheepshead are also starting to turn on fire, with great reports from inshore bridge pilings and the jetties using fiddler crabs and even live shrimp under a small float. Shrimping season continues to be under way with solid reports coming from St Helena sound as well as crab bank in the harbor.

Offshore:

Some beautiful weather recently has allowed numerous boats to slip out in the past week and get some trolling in, with boats like the Summer Girl slaying great numbers of wahoo and numerous sails and even a couple blues being caught as well. Blackfin tuna are just starting to show back up along the ledge as well. Bottom fishing in 70-100ft continues to produce some large triggers and b-liners with some fair numbers of grouper being caught in the same depths using live pinfish and vertical style jigs.

Scott’s Fishing Report — September 26, 2014

Inshore:

While the past week and a half has consisted of almost non-stop rainy conditions, do not let that fool you into thinking it has slowed down the inshore bite here in the lowcountry. Steady rain and cooler temps have dropped the water temps inshore considerably, and thus turning on a solid trout bite recently. Trout have been holding good in 4-6ft of water along shell rakes and creek mouths, and while live baits are certainly a go-to, many anglers have been having great success throwing a Savage Gear shrimp or a DOA shrimp to the trout. Surf fishing continues to be on the upswing as we hear more and more reports of large bull reds being caught using cut mullet in the surf, in addition to plenty of sharks still and some black drum. Shrimping season is hitting full swing and we are hearing many moderate to good reports on shrimp numbers coming in from the harbor and st Helena sound.

Offshore:

Wind and rain has made it tough lately to try and sneak out on the big pond, but those that have made the trip have reported back some great bottom fishing in 70-100ft of water for triggerfish, b-liners, sea bass, and the occasional grouper. While we have not received very many trolling reports the past week, the couple reports we did get reported back a strong wahoo bite from 140-250ft and a handful of sails being found around 400ft.
