Hunting Island Fishing
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.
