Trip Info


These US Navy sailors had a great day, especially with the sharks! Catching sharks is a great time, and these folks figured it out quickly! Now as the water starts to cool, the Charleston fishery lights up again. The bull reds are eating out at the deeper holes in the harbor and at the jetties (and grillage of course), sharks a plenty, and trout, reds, and flounder are fattening up for winter. Mud minnows, live or artificial shrimp, cut bait - all good choices this time of year! 

Don’t miss out on this falls fishing, it’s setting up to be an epic year!
