Lowcountry Saltwater Fishing Report - 4/26/2016

Fishing Report for the Coastal Lowcountry of South Carolina:
April 30th is the 3rd Dolphin Slam !!
Inshore Report: Scott Hammond at Haddrell's Point West hints that the spring has sprung wide open offering full tilt fishing for those with saltwater fever. Large trout are being found in solid numbers fishing with live baits or Trout Tricks around creek mouths and shell rakes in 3 to 10-feet of water. Sheepshead are still being caught in great numbers on the nearshore reefs and the jetties using fiddler crabs and sand fleas for bait. Redfish have begun to transition into a summer pattern, breaking out of larger schools and populating every dock in sight, and even pushing into the grass during moon tides. Large bull reds are showing up in solid numbers around the jetties and grillage using chuck mullet or blue crab, and the bonnethead sharks are also a good bet to make your drag scream. Jack Crevalle have been spotted in the nearshore waters lately too. For all the latest seminar information visit the Internet at Haddrell's Point.

Offshore Report: Scott says the time is NOW! For those who enjoy the offshore trolling, do not wait a day longer!! Great reports of dolphin are already flooding into the store, plus the blackfin tuna are showing up in strong numbers. This is a wonderful time of year to put some fresh fish flesh on the table with the mahi eating skirted ballyhoo and the tuna chasing cedar plugs. Some wahoo are still being found along the ledge, and the lure of choice is the YoZuri Bonita. The first blue marlin of the year have been caught and released within the last week, so think BIG when out in the Deep Blue!
