Lowcountry Saltwater Fishing Report - 8/11/2015

Fishing Report for the Coastal Lowcountry of South Carolina:
Tailing redfish are always fun to target!
Inshore Report: Scott Hammond at Haddrell's Point West shares that Mother Nature is providing a gift in the form of temps in the 80's during August. That same wise lady is also providing a plethora of big bull redfish for those fishing live baits or cut mullet around the jetties. A strong flounder bite is also happening naturally around rock piles and other structure in 5 to 10-feet of water. Go with live minnows or a Zman Jerk Shadz, or for an artificial lure try out a small spinner blade, also known as a fluke killer - which works well in dirty water and while drift fishing. Sheepshead are still taking fiddler crabs fished around pilings in 8 to 20-feet of water, and customers are still seeing a decent number of small to mid-sized trout. The specks are eating live shrimp fished under a popping float or try free-lining a savage gear shrimp near creek mouths. For the latest seminar information visit the Internet at Haddrell's Point.

Offshore Report: Scott shares that a steady diet of East-Northeast winds will keep most boats at the dock, but a few did manage to get out deep and they encountered a terrific wahoo bite in 130 to 200-feet of water. High-speed trolling was the best way to target the speedy and silver gamefish with a penchant for fast action. A few sailfish continue to be found offshore. Bottom fishing in water depths from 70 to 120-feet of water is producing vermilion snapper, sea bass and a few nice grouper too. While live baits work great for grouper, don't discount the Blue Water Candy roscoe jig as a great way to vertically jig up some big beastly bottom dwellers.
