Lowcountry Inshore Family Fishing
One of my most viewed blogs to date was 'Shark tooth hunting in the Lowcountry' which brought together myself, my in-laws, nephew, wife, and daughter together to have a great family experience searching for shark's teeth and fossils.
In this day of ipads, iphones, and gaming systems, I believe we get too comfortable sitting around as families with our face buried in our electronics! ...Yes! I am guilty of this too!
I wanted to share another great experience with local fishing guide, Captain John Fuss of Holy City Fishing Charters. Last year, I took my father-in-law, daughter(who was 3.5 years old at the time), and my nephew to go fishing, dolphin watching, and searching for shark teeth. Captain John picked us up at Remley's Point Landing and within 20 minutes had my daughter and nephew catching fish! We caught redfish, black drum, and trout throughout the morning. We viewed a mother dolphin and baby dolphin feeding in the shallows along the shoreline of Downtown Charleston, and managed to find a few shark teeth on one of the local islands. Captain John's patience and willingness to work with our younger generations was second to none!
Captain John also provided me a quick fishing report this morning -
August 24, 2017:
Biting right now: the sharks and bull reds on menhaden are cranking up and September looks good. In the rivers, trout, flounder, redfish, sheepshead, and black drum are chewing. Many of the trout are the smaller males but that will change in the next month or so.
As always, please keep me in mind if you, your friends, or family have any real estate needs in the Charleston area!
