Soft plastic lures come in many different sizes, colors, and styles. With all of the different soft plastics on the market today it can be overwhelming or confusing for some anglers.†I want to cover a few of my favorite go-to soft-plastic/jighead combos I use when targeting reds, trout, and flounder.
While plenty of surf fishermen catch sharks while targeting other species, a group of Lowcountry anglers from the Requiem Fishing Team targets sharks — big ones — and Edisto is one of their choice locations in August.†
A shark’s sense of smell is definitely something anglers can capitalize on when fishing. While cut pieces of baitfish or stingray give off their own odors for sharks to find and follow great distances, anglers can enhance the odors with sprays and gels just like bass and catfish anglers have for years.
Flounder are a unique species of fish, having both eyes on the same side of the body and lying on the ocean floor on its other side. With its mouth shaped in a way that doesn’t seem conducive to the way it lives, it’s an odd fish, but no less tasty, and no less of a desirable target for many reasons.
Flounder will bite many different baits and lures, and that’s a good thing for anglers like Jordan Kennerly of Swansea who spends a lot of time bass fishing in the midlands, but still likes to wet a hook when he’s on the coast. Luckily for him, he can catch his share of flounder with the gear he already has.
