Lowcountry Saltwater Fishing Report - 9/11/2015

Fishing Report for the Coastal Lowcountry of South Carolina:
Use a cast net to gather shrimp over bait stations
Inshore Report: Scott Hammond at Haddrell's Point West exclaims - 'Tis The Season - for Shrimping! The season begins at noon on Friday September 11, 2015 and will continue for 60 days. All indications are pointing towards a fantastic shrimping season, and for more details and licensing information visit the SCDNR. Tarpon are being found around the inlets, and on some cases within reach of surf casting, and they are looking for a large mullet or a blue crab to taste. Bull reds are hanging around the jetties and other similar areas in good numbers, and will bite cut mullet, blue crab and large Gulp baits. Live shrimp fished under a popping cork around shell rakes and creek mouths is still producing a decent trout bite. The flounder fishing is picking up towards fall with the best reports coming from rock piles and slews near inlets. Try a tandem rig with your favorite soft plastics, or drag a mud minnow slowly along the bottom to tempt the flat fish. For the latest seminar information visit the Internet at Haddrell's Point.

Offshore Report: A few boats have made it offshore for overnight swordfish trips according to Scott, with some decent catch numbers. In addition, the wahoo bite is STILL going strong with high-speed trolling tactics. Heck, they are even taking slow-trolled offerings like Ilander, San Sal Candy or Black Bart lures. Bottom fishing with cut squid in 70 to 100-feet of water around good live bottom is producing plenty of vermillion snapper, triggerfish, black sea bass, porgies and more. Drop a live pinfish or vertical jig down in the same areas and you may meet Mr. Grouper too!!
