Sorry, so I started a new thread hoping for a response.

You seem to be the resident "guru", but not much luck with my post about fishing Fripp Island (outside Hunting Island). Do you think I can get by with a 10' Ocean Master rod with Penn 6500ss reel for surf, pier and inlet fishing? Hoping maybe a bit of flounder action, surf know sharks, but what else? Up here we use minnows for flounder, bunker for surf, but what about sheapshead and other species off the southern South Carolina coast?

Any drum, blues ar stripers?

This year, the big blues have invaded. Ok, well is 24" big to you? We also have some big drum. I caught a 43" last month on a sand perch. Every now and then, one turns up. A 10' rod is overkill for most species, I'd go with something lighter and have fun with the flounder, black drum, sheepshead and such. If you want sharks, and god knows everyone seems to be shark crazy this year, by all means bring the 10' and put a shock leader on it. Right now, I'm burnt out on them, so I'm doing the light tackle thing. Hooked a nice flounder tonight on a DOA but lost him. Probably about 18". Someone else had one that was about 25" and 6 pounds. Wish I could have had that fish. It was in a cooler with some undersized whiting and red drum, but the guy scooted before the DNR showed up. Oh well.:rolleyes:

Shaggy...Bridge traffic is going to be a killer but you're already on the other side. Glad you have the grills. I can already taste that 1st Bud Lite. See you Saturday.

Topsailbum....Nothing wrong with the carolinas at all. Maybe someday I'll get down there for a little bait dunking. How do you guys fix your crabs - steamed with Old Bay or boiled?

Catman.

Boiled shellfish including shrimp (that low country abundance) was hard to get used to at first, love my Old Bay, but it does grow in you. My personal favorite from that neck of the woods though is Frogmore Stew. As a guy from Alabama, nothin' like southern cookin'.:D
