Saltwater Fishing Trends - Dec. 12
Fishing trends courtesy www.SCFishingReport.com. Check the site for recent updates and detailed reports.
- Cherry Grove Pier reports that a few whiting, croaker, and small flounder have been caught off the pier. The spot “run” has ended.
- Surf and Pier: Perry’s reports that there is little surf fishing going on right now, and that there was never really a good spot run this year. Some seasons they stay offshore for the most part, and this appears to have been one of those years when only isolated fish came to the beaches and piers.
- Charleston Angler reports redfish are fishing good. Hiding in creeks to take cover from the elements meant lots of dock fishing. With the bait stealers long gone, you could fish cracked blue crab and mullet unmolested.
- Offshore: Haddrell’s Point reports that some good numbers of blackfin tuna are hanging in 140-240 feet of water, as well as some scattered wahoo and a few dolphin. Bottom fishing in 75-120 feet of water continues to produce solid numbers of vermillion snapper, triggerfish and black sea bass. A few grouper have also been caught on live pinfish.
- Spottail Bass: Coach reports that redfish are getting much more aggressive, and they are also starting to form large schools on the flats. Almost all of the juvenile redfish are in the slot right now and just right for the skillet.
