Lowcountry Saltwater Fishing Report - 7/28/2015

Fishing Report for the Coastal Lowcountry of South Carolina:
A Catch and Release Spotted Seatrout 
Inshore Report: Scott Hammond from Haddrell's Point West shares that August is almost upon us, meaning that the peak of Tarpon fishing is just around the corner. Reports of the Silver King off of Georgia are hot right now, and their migration upwards to the Lowcountry is well underway. Fishing slews between sandbars around front beach inlets is a good way to start, using a large live mullet or a big blue crab for bait. Good Luck fending off the sharks too! Moving inshore, there is still a regular heartbeat to the flounder bite, and they are creating a cardiac arrest for local anglers when they pounce on a live minnow and pin it to the bottom. Artificial enthusiasts may want to try a Zman Paddlerz on the bottom along rock piles and creek mouths when probing for flat fish. Redfish are still holding in their usual haunts like under docks and along rock piles. In front of the beaches, good schools of Spanish mackerel are available for those casting a #00 Clarkspoon, Scott's no fail option of choice. To view the latest seminar information visit the Internet at Haddrell's Point.

Offshore Report: The James Island King Mackerel tournament had some nice kings come to the scales in the 27 to 36-pound range. The Freayed Knot crew bonked a 60-pound HOO on the head over the weekend, to claim fist place wahoo at the Edisto Invitational. And bottom fishing continues to produce some groceries for the summer time fisherman, with sea bass and b-liners coming from 75 to 110-feet of water. Sailfish are being found under bait pods and should continue to be increasing in numbers.
