Lowcountry Saltwater Fishing Report - 7/23/2013

Fishing Report for the Coastal Lowcountry of South Carolina:
Splashdance!! A mahi makes a fuss while fighting.
Charleston Inshore: Scott Hammond at Haddrell's Point West shares that massive amounts of rainfall has really changed up the inshore fishery! How many inches have you poured out of your rain gauge already this year?! In order to keep pace with the change in salinity, Scott says to target your inshore fish closer to inlets. The closer to the ocean the better right now! Redfish, trout and flounder reports are keeping hopes for the inshore slam alive, and tarpon have begun to roll across the sandbars with regularity. Trout are chomping live shrimp and minnows fished under a popping float along shell rakes near our inlets in 3 to 6-feet of water. If you prefer artificials, throw VuDu Shrimp or DOA shrimp at them. Flounder hook ups are possibly the most consistent fishing right now, when fishing around edges of rock piles and creek mouths. Reds are still very structure oriented right now at low water situations, but have become plentiful in the tailing tides associated with the super moon. Bull reds are still at the jetties, grillage and inlets and they are eating blue crabs. Tarpon are looking for large mullet or large menhaden on the bottom, but don't be afraid to try a line up top as well. For all the latest seminar information visit the Internet at Haddrell's Point.

Offshore Report: It's dredge season! Scott says that the sailfish bite is here now with the heating up of summer. Best reports include good numbers of sailfish in 400 to 800-feet of water. A few dolphin are still hanging around in 110 to 250-feet of water. While the wahoo numbers have not been that great, the fish that are being landed are studs! Bottom fishing continues to produce large black sea bass in 60 to 100-feet of water, and good numbers of triggerfish and grouper are in the same depths. Go get 'em!
