Edisto Island (SC) Summer Fishing Report – Updated July 11
Inshore: Captain Ron Davis, Jr. (843-513-0143) reports that when you can locate redfish on the flats or in the creeks the bite has been good, although numbers of bigger fish are still down. 8-10 inch fish are abundant and with the creeks full of shrimp live shrimp are tough to beat. Trout fishing is good with live shrimp fished 3-5 feet under a popping cork, and flounder fishing is above average with mud minnows and finger mullet fished on the bottom. Sheepshead fishing is good on fiddler crabs around structure.
Nearshore: Just off the beaches anglers can catch Spanish mackerel by following the birds and casting spoons or trolling, and at local hotspots tarpon are around in pretty good numbers. They will eat blue crabs and mullet.
