Folly Beach Fishing Report 10/23/09

The Fall trout bite is now in full swing! The recent cooler weather has really turned the fishing on. Even a short fishing trip will be well worth your time.

There are several things you can use to catch trout: plastic grubs, live shrimp or mud minnows, DOA plastic shrimp, etc. The good news is that they are all working. Target oyster beds when then tide is rising or falling just as long as the water is moving. Trolling for trout using plastic grubs can be an effective way to find trout. Bass Assassin’s Chicken on a Chain is a hot pattern right now.

Fishing for redfish has been excellent. All the techniques mentioned above will work for redfish too. It’s just that time of year when fish are eagerly eating. I’ve continued to throw plastic jerk shad with much success and recommend lighter colors including white.

As the water continues to clear, sight fishing improves and is especially exciting for fly fishermen. I’ve run several fly fishing charters recently and we’ve had good luck. You can target schools of redfish on the flats during low tide and catch them up in the grass during high tide too. Trout can be caught as well and anglers should try patterns that resemble minnows.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

See you on the water!
