Folly Beach Fishing Report 12/14/09

So far, December has had more than its fair share of rainy and windy days. The good news is that when conditions have allowed, the fishing has been excellent.

The Humours of Folly

PHOTOGRAPHER FRANK BRADEN OF “THE HUMOURS OF FOLLY” FAME IS BACK IN TOWN!

Frank is the artist behind the book that everyone who loves Folly (and that’s just about everyone who’s ever dug their toes in her sun-baked sand) is raving about. Frank’s been making the rounds, doing signings here, there and everywhere – did you see him at the Surf Bar or the Holiday Inn, Barnes & Noble or Waldenbooks? Maybe you saw him at the Oasis Bar & Grill or Plum Elements or at the S.C. Aquarium. Roseanne, who lives on Folly, met Frank at the Aquarium last week. The book stopped her in her tracks. “Folly is so hard to describe to someone who doesn’t know,” she said. “This book does it. It captures Folly perfectly.”

Folly Beach Fishing Report 11/24/09

Like 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.

Folly Beach Fishing Report 10/05/09

With the arrival of October, what many consider to be the best time of year to fish in the Lowcountry begins! Trout especially will become increasingly active with the cooler temperatures while both trout and redfish will continue to gorge themselves on the ample amount of available bait.

Folly Beach Fishing Report 9/23/09

The shrimp are here! The waters are teeming with them and not surprisingly the fish are happily feeding on them. Expect fishing to continue to improve with the combination of this influx of bait and cooling weather. A few throws of the cast net can provide all the shrimp you need.

Folly Beach Fishing Report 09/09/09

Fall has arrived and as temperatures become more hospitable you can also expect the fishing to improve! With the start of school and the end of the summer vacation season, the number of anglers on the water drops noticeably and leaves much more water open for those of us who continue fishing.

Labor Day Weekend on Folly

Ahhhh…one last break to relax on Folly. Some of us were taking a much needed break after starting back to school, while others just enjoyed the extra day off work to soak up some sun before it cools off. Regardless of how you ended up here, it is one of the last times we will see all of you together until next year.
