    According to Gerald Grenier, aka “Jigging Jerry,” an avid angler at the Mt. Pleasant Pier, “There is too much fresh water in the river, and it has pushed the trout and reds deeper.”This is a result of all the rain that the lowcountry has experienced lately. “The fish need the high salt content and that is why there are no big schools of reds coming in and a few stragglers of trout,” said Grenier.But this is not to say that they are not catching fish.Grenier says that he has been catching reds on cut pinfish on the outgoing tide. He fishes a Carolina rig with a 1/0 circle hook and a 2-ounce egg sinker.For the trout Grenier has been having good luck on a jig head with a Saltwater Assassin S.W. Curly in open night color.The trout are coming in on the low tide and are hitting on the drop.And for the sheepshead,Grenier says that he has been catching them on the high tide with fiddler crabs on small hooks.Rain, rain, go away and the fishing should pick back up to normal on the Mt. Pleasant Pier.South Carolina Sportsman Field Reporter Capt. Glenn “Teach” Corley captteachcorley@hotmail.com
