Cole Scroggs of Charleston holds up a nice 3 – 13 pound flounder that he caught on a Berkley Gulp shrimp while fishing off the Mt. Pleasant Pier in Charleston.
Chris Pounder, manager of the Mt. Pleasant Pier, says that they are catching some really nice 3-4 pound flounder and trout almost daily.
The flounder are coming in on the mid-incoming tide on the river (right) side of the pier. Anglers are catching these fish by bumping live mud minnows and shrimp on a Carolina rig off the bottom.
For the trout, anglers are catching them on the slack or incoming tide on the river side. Live mud minnows and shrimp fished under a cork, or artificial baits like a Bass Assassin in electric chicken or Texas shad are producing.
So if you are interested in some flounder or trout action, give the Mt. Pleasant Pier in Charleston at try.
