I spent several hours surf fishing on Folly Beach between 6th & 7th street on East Artic. My parents have a house on this block so it's very convenient. High tide was 10:30 am. I fished from 9:15-11:15, 1:00-2:00, and 3:00-4:00. The fishing was great, but the catching was not so good. I was able to cast into the last row of breakers. The rip current was pretty strong, but I walked the beach to stay in front of my line. I was using Gulp bait, a shrimp, crab, and a piece that looked like cut bait. In 4 hours I didn't even get a bite. Anybody have any suggestions? I'm thinking about going again during the Thanksgiving weekend.

I had a great time, but a little action would be nice.

Try getting past that last row of breakers. ive never used Gulp bait, Think i would go with the shrimp,cut bait or squid.

Don't know what kind of gear you have avalible but like the others have said. Try to get beyond the breakers or if there is a calm area between rows of break you can cast into that. The breaks occur on the bars the calm between them should be a gully the fish will be traveling in. Assuming there are fish in the area of course. I would scrap the gulp and go with the real thing too. Good luck and don't give up

Hmmm. I always have great luck right up near the beach, right in the breakers and white water.

I agree you can catch some nice small ones in the first set of wash but the bigger ones will normally be out in the gullys waiting for the smaller fish to wash back out

I just got home from IOP, we caught plenty of "keeper Trout", just outside the outer breakers! Using a Curly tail Jig! Some of the locals suggested a pink/with chartreuse tail, but in the end, it was the old reliable "Smoke Curly Tail", that won out!!!

Look for troughs, and cut mullet(fresh) draws in the big reds.

Have been told to forget about using artificials in the surf, so glad to hear of Mixed Nutz's success with the grubs. I do most of my surf fishing around 35th Ave on IOP when in the area and don't always have fresh bait on hand. Will give the grubs a try!
