Folly Beach Fishing

First trout of the year! Mud minnows paired with popping corks were the ticket. As the tide fell, the trout stacked up in front of creek mouths waiting to pick off bait. Great action until the water slowed then we moved to docks and worked on redfish. Redfish ate cut mullet as well as mud minows. Spring is here!

The Hamilton party joined me for the third morning this week with our sights set solely on big reds. We had a perfect low tide that would concentrate schools of reds on the flats. Once we posted up and put out chunks of cut mullet, the rods started whipping over! Sharon’s seven pound personal record was the fish of the charter.

Jake and Kim booked me again almost exactly on the same date as last year. They knew to expect some great Fall fishing. As it turns out, that’s exactly what they got! Tons of smaller reds, trout and ladyfish with the occasional bruiser in between. Kim’s red was the biggest of the day and it fought so hard it pulled us off anchor! A truly beautiful ten pound red…….hopefully the duo will be back next year!

Started out the day hunting clean water and good current. Kept our popping corks rolling along with mud minnows underneath. Not much interest at the first two spots but plenty of happy fish at the third. Julie let her cork float way back in the current and it got hit hard! After a couple minutes of fighting the fish against the current, Julie had a four pound trout in the boat. Her new personal best – great job!

With just a couple reds in the boat, we were looking to pick things up a bit on our morning charter. As low tide exposed lots of structure, we kept working popping corks in the current. Wick got bit and the action let us know it was most likely a flounder. Little did I know it would be a boat record! Wick’s fish weighed in at 6.5lbs and measured 25″. Needless to say, that was the daymaker!

Reds circled our boat on the flats for two hours but only a lone eleven pounder would eat. So, we switched our focus over to trout. While popping corks produced nice legal trout, lines fished out the back with mud minnows were the story of the day. Two trout over 20″ smoked our baits with the largest at four pounds!

Jeff already had the bug for targeting big redfish and this time he brought his Dad along too. Eating heartily ahead of the big storm system, reds whipped the rods over again and again. Cut mullet was the bait of choice. By the end of the charter, the redfish averaged over ten pounds while David set the bar with a 13 pounder, his biggest fish ever!

Our rods whipped over time and time again. Broke off plenty of big fish as they quickly dove for structure. Managed to get a few to the boat with the biggest at 32″!

Very windy conditions forced us to seek shelter in the creeks making docks our only option and it was……..awesome! Huge redfish were smoking cut mullet on the bottom. With our drags tightened all the way down, it was all we could do to turn these fish. We even broke out the shark rods towards the end. Battled many, landed some with the heaviest at 16 pounds and the longest at 33″.
