Flounder in the Flats

Found this flounder amongst a school of redfish in one of the mudflats on Hilton Head’s Skull Creek. When you’re casting to reds and you hook a flounder, you’ll feel the difference immediately.

Mangrove Snapper Fishing In Hilton Head

Mangrove Snapper in Hilton Head?

I was surprised to reel this unusual catch to the boat. Unusual for here, at least. Mangrove Snapper are quite common further south in Florida, but South Carolina doesn’t see a lot of them inshore in the marsh creeks like this. It was my first in all my years of fishing here. This one took…
