Saltwater Fishing Trends - July 24
Fishing trends courtesy www.SCFishingReport.com. Check the site for recent updates and detailed reports.
- Cherry Grove Pier reports that flounder, sheepshead fishing is good using shrimp and bloodworms.
- Slow, but a few whiting are being caught on shrimp, black drum and pinfish on shrimp and bloodworms. Shark and skate are also fair with shrimp and bloodworms.
- Charleston Angler reports good results using a Kraimer’s Redfish Beadhead Fly on the incoming tide around the flats. They also report grass lines, docks and oyster beds are holding Trout, Redfish, Flounder and bluefish. Popping corks with shrimp or minnows will help you put some fish in the boat. Remember to rig a few rods with cork leaders set to different lengths. If you prefer artificials try the DOA Lures CAL series baits or Z-Man Fishing Products paddle tails on a 1/4 oz jig head. Vary your retrieve and present your baits at different depths until you get bit, then repeat the process again.
- Flounder is doing well caught on mud minnows.
