Captain Mike McDonald took Clinch Heyward, chairman of the S.C. Wildlife Federation fishing out of the South Island Landing and Lowcountryoutdoors.com tagged along. Leaving out of South Island Boat Landing and fishing in Winyah Bay, the target of the inshore fishing trip was spotted seatrout. Upon arriving at Gul'R'Boy's trout hole the anglers proceeded to catch just about anything but a trout! A spot-tailed bass was followed by a flounder, croaker, dogfish, rock bass, ladyfish, sheepshead, black drum, and THEN a trout decided to bite the hook. Everything fell for a shrimp fished under a float and it was good to partake in the mixed bag of fish that is just part of the blessing that is Lowcountry saltwater sporting adventure. For more about view my feature article in the Charleston Mercury.
