Folly Beach Fishing Report 08/21/09
Fishing around Folly Beach has been quite solid so far this month and as shrimp continue to fill our creeks and rivers expect it to improve.
Redfish have been responding very well to jerk shad artificial lures that imitate small baitfish. White has been a hot color and the Gulp! 5″ jerk shad in pearl will fit the bill. Try fishing these artificials on flutter hooks whose weighted shanks will impart additional action to your lure. Jim Dyke, pictured on the right, caught his fifteen pound redfish using this very combination on a recent charter. Flounder will fall prey to the jerk shad too.
Its hard to beat throwing live shrimp under popping corks for trout right now but anglers should consider trying topwater lures early in the morning. The Yo-Zuri Banana Boat lure has been productive as well as old standby’s like the Super Spook Jr’s. Topwater lures will allow you to fish a long grass bank or series of oyster beds quickly as you search for trout.
The Folly Beach Fishing Pier will hold its Big Kahuna fishing tournament on August 29th from 6:00am to 4:00pm and there will be multiple categories of prizes across all ages. Registration for the tournament begins at 6:00am and takes place on-site only.
See you on the water!
