Lowcountry Saltwater Fishing Report - 6/6/2016

Fishing Report for the Coastal Lowcountry of South Carolina:

Inshore Report: The ladyfish are back for summer. Often called the Poor Man's tarpon, these silver surfers inhabitant the same haunts as spotted seaport, and fall for the same fishing methods. Look for water with swift current and some type of structure like an oyster rake that can divert and funnel bait. Put a shrimp under a float and let it float freely through the rip, and then be ready to set the hook. A string of acrobatic jumps is sure to follow, and whether you reel in a ladyfish or not, you will have had a great saltwater fishing experience.

Redfish are chewing on mud minnows readily around dock pilings, and look for tailing reds during high water up in the flooded marsh. The flounder bite is picking up and the first Spanish mackerel are beginning to show up. The cobia bite is going well but the keeper season in federal waters is about to close for the remainder of 2016 - click here for more details.

Offshore Report: Mahi are biting well right now, with some sailfish mixed in. Tropical Storms Bonnie and Colin have made a mess of many days when anglers wish they could have been fishing in the deep blue sea!
