Lowcountry Fishing Report : May 2022

Coastal fishing in South Carolina is getting better every day and the waters surrounding Beaufort’s Sea Islands are an angler’s paradise!

According to our weekly report from Captain Ralph on Fripp Island, the high winds have slowed fishing and hurt our fly fishing, but the catching is GOOD!
