Hunting Island Fishing

MidlandsOutdoors joined some friends for a trip to the lowcountry this past weekend. Fishing out of kayaks, we were able to get into the skinniest water possible, and had no trouble getting on the fish in the Hunting Island Lagoon even at dead-low tide.

The flounder started things off for us, biting on both live bait (mud minnows) and artificials such as Z-Man Minnowz in pearl color on a white jig head. The flounder bite was good from the walking bridge to the back of the lagoon and lasted a couple of hours. Once the flounder slowed down, the redfish began biting, and several were landed, including a few over-the-slot fish.

Many deer-some in velvet-were sited along the banks of the lagoon, the weather was great, and the fellowship with friends was a bonus. It's tough to beat such a visit to the lowcountry.

This over-the-slot redfish was a blast to catch, and just as much fun to watch swim away, none the worse for wear after its visit with MidlandsOutdoors. Dalton shows off another table-worthy fish in this 15-inch flounder.
