Fishing in the Lowcountry

It has been a few weeks since I posted some Lowcountry fishing information.  Reports are showing the trout are currently biting but are currently on the smaller side.  Redfish action is also starting to pick up with the water warming up.  Artificial and live baits under popping corks seem to be the bait of choice right now.

Are you just getting into fishing?  Looking to pick up some new skills?  We have some great local shops in the area that offer seminars and share a wealth of information as to what is biting and the current bait of choice.  Haddrell's Point Tackle, Charleston Angler, Lowcountry Fly Shop, and Atlantic Game and Tackle to name a few.

Some of the upcoming seminars in April:
