Folly Beach Fishing Report 11/24/09

DSCF0723 - CopyLike the holiday season, fishing is now in full swing. Anglers are reporting days replete with dozens of trout and large redfish. Water temperatures are still plenty warm to accommodate great fishing. A day on the water could be an exciting way to show relatives and guests a slice of the Lowcountry.

It’s hard to beat this time of year for trout. Paddletail plastic grubs on jig heads are working very well. Try a variety of colors although much like last season I am hard pressed to find one that outperforms the Chicken on a Chain pattern. Anglers should also consider D.O.A.’s 3” shrimp in Glow and Clear with Red Glitter. Try fishing these plastic shrimp under a popping cork.

Both the aforementioned grubs and shrimp will work for redfish. With water clarity continuing to improve, sight fishing conditions are great. When casting to redfish in the grass or on the flats, I’ll usually switch over to a jerk shad rigged weedless with the hook point embedded in its back. This rig will allow you to fish without constantly snagging or getting hung up.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

See you on the water!
