Lowcountry Saltwater Fishing Report - 2/24/2015

Fishing Report for the Coastal Lowcountry of South Carolina:

Inshore Report: Scott Hammond from Haddrell's Point West asks if you have EVER run your motor in freshwater before? His question comes on the heels of the Super Bowl of freshwater fishing just having been fished on Lake Hartwell at the 2015 Bassmaster Classic. However, Scott says that you don't have to leave the Lowcountry to find shad that have made their diadromous run from saltwater up into the freshwater confines of the Tail Race Canal. The shad offer great sport on ultralight gear, some 1/16-ounce Zman jigheads and a two-inch curly-tail grub. If you can't bear to leave the salt flats then grab some cut mullet and Gulp Peeler crabs before looking to chase redfish in the shallows at low tide. Scott's third and No Fail option for wintry mix type weather is to shuck some oysters..... no not for yourself, but for the Fish! The stud-sized sheepshead relish cold weather and are along bridge pilings and rock piles in 10 to 25-feet of water just waiting to eat more mollusks. For the latest seminar information visit the Internet at Haddrell's Point.

Offshore Report: Non-stop strong winds and COLD weather have kept almost all the boats inside the safety of the harbor. Captains are working on their boats and planning trips to Florida so that they can at least work on their boats in warmer weather! Historically speaking, when the weather allows, anglers should find wahoo and blackfin tuna scattered along the ledge. And bottom fishing options abound in 50 to 80-feet of water.
