Lowcountry Saltwater Fishing Report - 10/11/2015

Fishing Report for the Coastal Lowcountry of South Carolina:
Redfish catch and release while surf fishing
Inshore Report: Scott Hammond at Haddrell's Point West makes a good point that despite unprecedented amounts of rain in the Palmetto state - the fishing has been great lately! Fantastic numbers of redfish and trout are inhaling live shrimp and savage gear shrimp when fishing along shell rakes and creek mouths. Remember to stay closer to an ocean inlet when fishing right now, due to decreased salinity elsewhere from freshwater coming down the rivers. In fact, satellite views can show the plumes of surging water at inlets where these rivers meet the Atlantic Ocean. For the latest seminar information visit the Internet at Haddrell's Point.

Sheepshead are biting in decent numbers at the jetties and around areas with decent structure like rock piles and bridge pilings. While some have declared the bait-shrimping season is 'over' after 20-inches of rain in Charleston, the reports are that shrimp are still being found in the harbor, and also up at Bulls Bay. While bull redfish are absolutely ON FIRE around the harbor entrance and places like the Grillage, but October is also the time when surf fishing is at its best! Rig up with heavy tackle since sharks may also come into play, and practice catch and release fishing when at the beach.

Offshore Report: No report available due to a major hurricane passing by within the past two weeks.
