Lowcountry Saltwater Fishing Report - 9/22/2015

Fishing Report for the Coastal Lowcountry of South Carolina:
Storms can actually excite the fish in the surf zone!
Inshore Repot: Wetting a line in the saltwater trumps everything else for those who fish in the fall. The redfish are chasing fiddler crabs with renewed ferocity in the marshes knowing that any cool down in October will make the small crabs become inactive and unavailable. At the same time, larger redfish are patrolling the surf zone looking for bigger meals. Surf fishing may be the best bet between now and the end of October, so get your LONG rods into a beach buggy and head down to the north end of Folly Beach or somewhere similar and be sure to bring enough tackle to handle any bycatch of sharks.

Scott Hammond at Haddrell's Point West says it'sTime for a run! The Mullet run has hit full swing this past week and he has been getting epic reports of tarpon, bull reds, and large sharks all being caught under these schools of mullet heading south down the front beaches. Reports of 4,6, and even 8 tarpon hook-ups in a trip have been coming in through the door. Wanna use light tackle back in the estuaries instead of chasing front beach monsters? Well we are almost in October now and that means time to go do some “grubbing” for trout. As bait begins to push out of the creeks, trout will begin feeding very aggressively and provide great targets for artificial baits, such as a Zman PaddlerZ. Try trolling grubs at around high tide up along shell rakes and grass points, when ya hook up, swing back around and begin casting up to where you hooked up trolling…..where there is one trout there will likely be many more this time of year! For the latest seminar information visit the Internet at Haddrell's Point - like the Ladies Fishing 101 on Oct. 12 and Tackle for Angling Women on November 9.

Offshore Report: High-speed trolling for wahoo remains productive. Sailfish numbers should be increasing as bait pods gather. Bottom fishing over live structure can produce some tasty action.
