South Carolina Weekly Shallow Saltwater Fishing Report
Week of 09-16-01 through 09-22-01

This week’s report is pretty much the same as last week’s. Not too much wind, higher than normal tides, tailing fish and some really big reds being caught. The first trip caught several nice reds, one at 10#, and two at 4 ½#. Another trip caught 9 trout, 3 bluefish and two small reds. The last trip of the week caught 8 reds that were from 5# up to 13# each. Mullet minnows and spoons were once again the bait of choice. We spent one morning with fly rods chasing about a dozen reds that were tailing. Out of all the fish that we threw to, three of them chased the fly, and only one actually caught it and even he spit the hook before being brought to the boat. Shrimp baiting is in full swing at this time and the landings are crowded, but not as bad as in some past years. It seems that the past winter’s cold spell killed so many shrimp that this Fall crop is not as plentiful as it has been in some past years. I keep hearing local guys saying that they are catching quite a few small reds and I am encouraged by that. Here’s hoping that with the new bag limit on reds and hopefully a good spawn, our numbers will rebound quickly.

Our weeks totals were: Reds totaled 13 from 4 ½# up to 13# and trout totaled 9 schoolie size.
