Folly Beach South Carolina Surf Fishing?

Posted by Lauren Yanez on Nov 24, 2011

Hello, i am going to Folly Beach South Carolina in February and also in june, i am an avid surf fisherman and was wondering if anyone could give me any tips such as where to fish, what kinds of fish i could catch, and what baits to use because i have never fished here before.
Thanks! and happy fishing!

I have three spots that might interest you. First of all, if you take a left on East Ashley Street from Center Street and drive down to the end of the island (there’s parking right before the roundabout) you can walk about five minutes down a trail to where the river comes out into the ocean. That can be a hot spot as a lot of fish congregate here. Also, the Folly Beach Pier next to the Tides Hotel has a little tackle shop that sells bait (and daily fishing licenses for the pier) and many people enjoy fishing here. They can also give you local knowledge as to what’s biting and what baits are most prolific. Lastly, driving down East Ashley Street from Center Street when you get to 10th block you can park off the road on one of the side streets and walk out to the beach. Lately I’ve been told there is a good hole out off of 10th block and that redfish are hanging out there. I haven’t tried it yet but plan to take my 9 weight fly rod out there this week. The sandbars are always changing so it may take some trial and error when you get down here, or ask the locals, we’re all pretty friendly. Spotted sea trout, redfish, flounder, sharks and skates are going to be among the fish you can catch. Shrimp (live or frozen), live mud minnows, and squid are the staple baits around here. Cheers!

Tuna fishing trip (San Clemente Island area)?

Posted by Lauren Yanez on Nov 16, 2011

Hi, I live in Orange County, California.
I want to go to San Clemente Island area for Tuna fishing. (I heard there are Tuna around that area)
Do you know any recommended place that offers overnight fishing trip?

San Clemente island is basically the same distance from almost anywhere on the coast, but it’s about as far north as the tuna have shown this year. For your best chance to get fish, run down to San Diego. The O.C. and L.A. landings run one or two boats for tuna, and only fish them when they’re farther north. The San Diego boats fish tuna all summer, so the skippers have more practice and tend to do better. Plus, since they’re starting farther south, they can run farther south if that’s where the best bite is, which is the current situation.

Right now, the catch has been up and down (it’s getting toward the end of the season), and the better catches have been on longer trips (1.5 days and longer).

I’m planning on going tuna fishing from Galveston TX. If i catch a tuna am i able to sell it somewhere?

Posted by Lauren Yanez on Nov 10, 2011

If i can, where would be a place to go and how would i go about doing that?

This is a good question, and one that is asked by many who are tuna fishing.

From the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) FAQ page:

"Q: May I sell my tunas if I have an HMS Angling category permit?
A: No, if you have an HMS Angling category permit, you may not sell your catch. You must have a commercial fishing permit if you wish to sell your landings."

If you are on a licensed boat, your captain (who holds the license) can sell the fish, but he most likely will want a percentage. For recreational fishers, the law is quite clear that tuna or Higly Migratory Species cannot be sold.

how do you rig a anchovie for tuna fishing on a charter boat?

Posted by Lauren Yanez on Nov 6, 2011

Im going on a 1.5 day charter fishing trip on board the Prowler out of Fisherman’s Landing in San diego any help would be appreciated

through the body right by the top fin, or through the lower and upper lips or through the gill bone. Change baits often use a lively looking bait. Use a size 1 hook and a pinch weight about 3 feet up from the hook, on 15-20lb test line.

Good luck!
