Inshore charter fishing in Charleston and Folly Beach was a little bit of touch and go last week as dicey weather rolled through the lowcountry. The good thing was if you got out on a reasonable day the big reds and some nice trout were happy to eat! Fish were taking artificials like the DOA shrimp popped off the bottom and Z-Man soft paddle tails on a pause and twitch retrieve. Cut bait such as mullet and crab worked well at slack tides and mud minnows and shrimp under corks picked up fish in the moving water near oyster beds and docks. Lots of glass minnows in the water reminds me to keep our presentations small most of the time but when I see larger mullet in the creeks I know I can add an up sized bait to the mix to potentially draw big strikes. It’s a good idea to keep a few rods rigged as the bait patterns and water temps are varying from creek to creek. Pay close attention to your surroundings and I promise you will score some nice fish! Get geared up or call me to get in on this action now.
