The only walleyes I've seen down here was looking at me thru a picture frame.....

you got a lot to learn......

get a book on saltwater fishin and hang around this site and ask questions. waters about 62 degrees right now (once it gets closer to 68 things really start to pick up). fishin will be gettin good reel soon.



IOP pier is private for those condos.

Folly pier over at Folly beach is a paid public pier.

there's also that other pier down near Ravenal bridge (Mt. Plesant pier). I haven't fished it yet. probably cuz there aint any king mackarel off the end of that one.

Mt. Pleasant waterfront park is open to the public. You can fish there right now. Guy on here posted of catching some sheepshead last week. Couple hours before and after high tide with some fiddlers. Tight lines...

DOH!

Thanks Indy

I fixed it ^^

If I can't get on it, or there ain't no kings off the end of it, my brain doesn't bother to register it properly.

at my age my brains pretty much filled. if I have to remember something new, I have to forget something first....

Matt,
Go to any of the local tackle shops, (Haddrells or Charleston Angler have multiple locations around here, just Google them), and they will be happy to get you pointed in the right direction. I have always found both of them to be great sources of information, and really willing to help people get started. Also, as 12-Footer said, keep an eye out on this website for tips and tricks and ask questions. Just remember to have a thick skin since there seem to be a lot of people on here who think they own the water and don't want anybody who's great, great, great, great, great grandparents didn't live here to partake of their precious resource. Good luck!

**** the Mt p pier I went once toc heck it out.. its shallow, you have to pay to park and fish the pier,, thats just too much, but I tried it...for the most what they are catching is shepsheads..did see a guy pull up a small black drum last summer.. have been told their are trout and red drum but never saw any or met anyone who has caught or knows someone who caught one their... hey matt.. go out to Sullivans island fish behind ft multrie, next to the rock jetty..their I said it..its free, pleny of parking and the few times Ive been have seen and caught fish.. but matt to really produce you need to becomes friends with a boat owner , buy one, or go to the "fishing buddy" thread and hook up with someone going out

there's plenty of fish to be had at the pier. water temp is almost right now. next few weeks should be interesting to see what starts biting

the pier is built on a giant mud flat so yeah at low tide there isn't much water. i've had better luck on the risin tide out there.

its not an ocean pier. it's in the cooper river so expect to catch reds, trout, flounder, sheeps, etc. you're not gonna catch any kings off there

personally i like going out there. it's not everyones cup of tea i suppose

hooked a 27" red last year off the pier tide coming back in ..... on a 3 inch pin fish .... I thought the water was a little warmer last time we were out we were getting about 68 on the flat to the right of the pier .... don't cast out let your line roll under or hit near the pylons of the big bridge .... drag some mud minnows hook and sinker no crazy rigs ..... I might venture down early and see if I can find some sheepshead

Hey everybody - My sister and her husband are coming to visit Memorial day weekend. I think it would be easier to take them to fish this pier than taking them on the kayak and canoe on the rivers, due to time.

Any other tips anyone would like to share (choice of bait, where not to cast out to avoid snags.....)? I've never fished this peir yet and want to make sure they have the best experience catching fish up here in Charleston on their vaction. Thanks in advance.

My 2 cents on bait. Shrimp will keep you busy. Everything eats it. It is good if you are with children because it doesn't get too boring. You could catch every type of BS fish around or a huge target species. Target for me, and probably most, is reds, trout or flounder. If you fish with finger mullet (FM), cut bait or very large mud minnows (MM), you may not get a single bite. However, when you do, boy it is fish on. If it is not a target fish, it will likely be a ray or a shark. Not target but still fun and kids love them both.

Thanks for the info jipride. I'm pretty sure they'll want to hit the target fish. Who doesn't?
I think I might catch some fiddlers and try for some sheephead as well.

Hey y'all new user here new to area. Headed over to Mt P pier today incoming tide and caught nice flounder, barley legal trout, and a fun ray. Only out for about an hour fishies were after some cut mullet today. lots of rays on the surface. Pier is super clean and only pier I've been to with nets for anyone to use lined up down the pier. one guy even came up and poured bleach over the spot where the ray bled a little. so in my opinion 5 bucks to fish and 50 cents an hour to park is worth it. have a good one... don't have pics btw...

yeah noticed that they sell beer today so I bought two to start but they make you pour them in plastics in the shop. oh well drink em while they're cold. Then right when we get out there my fianc catches a 16" red. I thought the day was gonna be insane but ended up only catch all day. some other sheepshead were caught by others. mainly by people who saw her catch red and all of a sudden 6 people move right beside us WTF... anyway nice day again. people who work the pier even walk around with a cast net trying to catch bait for people. here she is with her red.
