Scott’s Fishing Report — September 26, 2014

 

reports scott twenty four inch trout 01 Scotts 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

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.

Scott’s 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.
