Charleston Spring 2015 Fishing Report (Updated June 5)

  • by Jay

Inshore: Haddrell’s Point (843-881-3644) reports that water temperatures have touched 80 degrees and so the summer bite is on. Spanish mackerel have shown up around the tips of the jetties and inlets, sharks are about as thick as they get, and bull red drum are eating at the jetties as well as in the inlets. Inside the creeks and rivers there is a solid trout bite along shell rakes in 3-6 feet of water using Zman Trout Tricks as well as live bait fished under a popping float. Redfish are in a summer pattern and smaller pods of fish will take cut mullet, live bait or Gulp! fished under docks at low tide. Flounder have also arrived inshore and are eating live minnows, Zman PaddlerZ, and jerk shad fished along the edges of rock piles and sand flats.

Folly Beach Pier (843-588-3474) reports that whiting, small bluefish and spadefish have been caught off the pier as well as a few black drum. Kings and Spanish have not been caught.

Offshore:  Haddrell’s Pointreports that marlin fishing has been phenomenal, and one of the best blue marlin bites that has been seen is going on right now. There is also a solid dophin bite in 150-1200 feet of water, and bottom fishing has been producing some quality grouper, triggerfish, vermillion snapper and sea bass.
