Lowcountry Saltwater Fishing Report - 1/27/2015

Fishing Report for the Coastal Lowcountry of South Carolina:
Offshore boat with Fun Fish Wrap from 2010
Inshore Report: Scott Hammond at Haddrell's Point West points out that Fish Don't Know How To Read The Calendar! Don't give up on the fish just because it's almost February, the month that is traditionally the heart of winter weather for the Lowcountry. A few warm weather days recently saw good catches of redfish, a few large trout and even a flounder or two?! Larger schools of channel bass are being found on shallow tide flats during sunny conditions, and they are taking live mud minnows and Zman Slim Swimz readily. Sheepshead continue to eat oysters and fiddlers along deep water bridge   pilings and at nearshore artificial reefs. Most impressively is the number of flounder caught in January both in the harbor and at some of the coastal impoundments. Live minnows is Scott's can't fail bait for the flatfish but he won't hesitate to cast a pearl white jerkshad rigged on the new Trout Eye jigheads. Trout are hit and miss but the best best to find some specks is in 8 to 12-feet of water along structure and creek mouths. To learn the latest seminar information visit the Internet at Haddrells' Point.

Offshore Report: Scott shares that bottom fishing reports still continue to comprise the bulk of offshore trips now. Sea bass and triggerfish are being caught in 65 to 90-feet of water using squid and vertical jigs. The trolling report is that wahoo and amberjack are holding tight right along the ledge in 140 to 250-feet of water.
