Great inshore bite right now in Charleston. Bull redfish are biting around deep ledges, and inshore fishing is starting to pick up. Redfish, trout and flounder are being caught in the rivers as well as at the jetties. Live shrimp under popping corks for the river, and carolina rigs for the bull redfish. The fishing is only going to get better as the summer starts to come to an end.

The king mackerel bite is off the charts right now. Almost every piece of live and hard bottom is holding king mackerel. Slow trolling menhaden and mullet is working very well. Trolling rapalas and spoons is also proving to be very effective.
Kings are ranging from 10lbs to 40lbs, with the best depth being around 70-100ft.
