Lowcountry Saltwater Fishing Report - 3/29/2016

Fishing Report for the Coastal Lowcountry of South Carolina:
Celebrating 20 Years in 2016 - Congrats!!
Inshore Report: Scott Hammond at Haddrell's Point West declares that Spring has arrived! With longer days full of sunshine and air temps holding in the 70's, the fishery is rapidly changing. Bait is entering our waters and the fish are hungry, with the first flounder showing up now too.

Redfish are no longer focused simply on preservation and are returning to form as top-tier predators. Anglers should consider using artificial plastic lures that mimic baitfish like the jerk shad lures that are available in a wide variety of colors. And trout have awakened from their sluggish winter phase, becoming more active along grassy banks and over submerged oyster beds. A 3-inch Glow/Gold DOA plastic shrimp suspended two-feet underneath a 1/4-ounce DOA popping cork should work great.

The flounder are also being taken on popping corks rigged with a mud minnow. Focus on fishing near structure when targeting flat fish, with old pilings and docks being good places to prospect. Cast in all different directions to try and locate them, and remember that they will hug the bottom where they hope to ambush prey. A pro tip is that flounder may change their location only slightly during the ebb and flow tides, so don't leave a good spot just because the tide changed and the bite turned off.
For all the latest seminar information visit the Internet at Haddrell's Point.

Offshore Report: Wahoo are being caught with regularity along the ledges and the first mahi are showing up to the South too.
