Lowcountry Saltwater Fishing Report - 8/25/2015

Fishing Report for the Coastal Lowcountry of South Carolina:
Remember to bow to the The Silver King!
Inshore Report: Scott Hammond at Haddrell's Point West cheers that September is right around the corner, and he expects the fantastic tarpon bite to continue right through the annual mullet migration. He shares that reports of a solid tarpon bite have been received from up in Georgetown all the way down to Hilton Head, especially around ocean inlets. Large live mullet, live blue crabs, or even a large Hogy artificial have been the baits of choice for pods of tarpon moving into our estuary. Place your tarpon baits into slews between sand bars, and into other drop offs next to channels that these beasts are cruising through. Also, look out for sharks and bull red drum in these same locations - and who doesn't love a mixed bag while saltwater fishing. Back in the rivers, decent numbers of small trout are being caught around creek mouths using live shrimp under a popping float, or using a Zman Trout Trick lure. Sheepshead continue to be found around bridges and almost any heavy structure in 6 to 20-feet of water, and they are looking to inhale fiddler cabs or live shrimp. For the latest seminar information visit the Internet at Haddrell's Point.

Offshore Report: By now, Scott says that most anglers are already in tune with the great wahoo bite going on off the coast. Reports of between two and thirteen wahoo per trip have been coming in from those fishing in 110 to 250-feet of water, and at the Edisto Banks. High speed trolling certainly has produced its fair share of the wahoo, but plenty of strikes are coming simply when trolling Iland lures with a medium ballyhoo rigged behind it. After you put a wahoo or two in the box, slip back to 80 to 90-feet of water and drop down over live bottom for plenty of nice sized sea bass and vermillion snapper.
