After school therapy - Youngen Style

Well I have been watching the tide height and wind speed praying that I could make another late afternoon until dark trip sight fishing again with my youngen and since softball practice got cancelled the mad dash to the water was on. After calculating roughly 2 hours of light left I chose to head to a new area to me....and so it began. After pulling up to the flat we see someone already out there wading.....after seeing zero fish i said well pressure makes fish swim across a ditch and walah...... bingo! Found fish and more fish and more fish. The problem was that these fish would literally come up and almost kiss the bait and casually go back to feeding near the arties. This means high pressured fish. She made cast after cast after cast with 2 tried and true patterns but no takers....except a very nice size Whiting!

The fall bite is here.

Well it was one of those weekends that you just dream of. The weather was perfect and the fish cooperated nicely. From flood tide marsh flats covered with tailers to the juvenile fish showing up good in the creeks. The flood tide was nice and slow to enter the flat. Saw five fish total, casted at three of them. I had two takers, but one came unglued as he swam straight at me and spit the hook. Always a rush though! They were all fat healthy fish. The tides are great for the rest of the week. Get out there and get on em! Thanks to Peepod for the use of his secret spot. Plenty of bait in the creeks. I caught over 100 bait shrimp in about ten minutes, enough to last me the entire weekend. And I would need it too. The juvie reds and sheepshead were stacked up and hungry in the creeks. I even managed to get a flounder in between the live shrimp being battered. Easily caught a dozen reds between 12" and 22" and a dozen sheepshead on small shrimp. It was a fun filled weekend. Add in there a Gamecock win and an OSU loss and I felt pretty good about it.

Late Summer Big Boys - Wando River

Had a blast last week getting on the redfish. I fished the last two hours of the outgoing tide and first hour of the incoming. I saw over slot redfish chasing shrimp up in the shallows as I cruised along the banks, spooking many fish along the way. I finally found an area where they were feeding on finger mullet, so I matched the hatch and it paid off! All fish were caught on ZMan Minnowz (bad shad) with a 3/16 oz Texas Eye jig head. This grub color looks just like a mullet in my opinion. The reds were feeding ferociously and would hit it on the fall and on a steady retrieve as well. Here's the video of my trip. I hope you enjoy! https://youtu.be/Ne7x0QKtXsM

Labor Day slobs

Fished from sunup until 9 and the bigger fish cooperated. Incoming tide, cut crab near the grass in a foot to two foot of water. The smallest fish was 27"+. The Stono fish always seem to be that beautiful golden color. Its not something I get tired of. Home for breakfast and off the water before the real craziness started.

Took our boat out and went fishing for the first time about in about 90ft of water on some spots on maps unique. Caught only a few keeper sea bass, 1 vermillion, 2 grunts, and 2 15 pound red snapper. I'm relatively new at fishing "offshore", have been out fishing at some live bottom in 60ft but would like to catch some grouper. We have a smaller center console, I was wondering if anyone had any tips on catching quality bottom fish in about 60-100 feet, and also on effectively anchoring on spots as I've had some trouble getting "right on the spot".

Hey everyone. Haven't been in the group in a while. Been a busy life, traveling alot and switching up on jobs. Been doing alot of saltwater fishing down in Panama City Beach.Just realized I haven't been in the group all summer. Ready to get back down to Charleston from the upstate and catch some nice sheepsheads and hopefully do some gigging soon for flounder. Had a good time earlier this year meeting new people and enjoying the water.. Good luck to everyone the rest of the year and be safe out there. Hope to get back down and see some of you guys again soon....
