Charleston Winter 2014-15 Fishing Report (Updated March 15)

  • by Jay

Inshore: Haddrell’s Point (843-881-3644) reports that warmer water temperatures have the redfish schools feeding more actively again. Along the shallow mud flats cast a live mud minnow or a Savage Crab to schooling redfish. Sheepshead continue to feed on live fiddler crabs, clams, and oysters fished around bridge pilings and rock piles in 10-20 feet of water, and this bite should only get better as water temperatures continue to climb.

Folly Beach Pier (843-588-3474) reports that sharks, rays and a couple of spottail bass have been caught off the pier recently.

Offshore:  Haddrell’s Pointreports that favorable weather is allowing the first trolling reports of the season, and one boat fished south along the ledge recently and caught five wahoo and several blackfin tuna in the 150-300 foot range. Bottom fishing in 60-80 feet continues to produce some nice black sea bass as well as plenty of porgies and beeliners. Closer to shore at the nearshore reefs fishing with live fiddler crabs has produced some nice black dram and sheepshead in 30-60 feet of water.
