Just brought my boat down from Charleston a few weeks back and keeping it at Thunderbolt. Trying to get some advice from some people on a few places to go catch some reds or trout around the area, and what kind of rig you like to use? Thanks. Also wondering if there are any sandbars around that people hangout at?

Use the tall skinny bobbers with a lead weight (size depends on current) and live shrimp. Adjust height to be just barely off the bottom just above the oyster beds. Need to be fishing at the beginning of the movement of the tide.
Go out at low tide and locate shell banks on the rivers. Fish the shell beds closer to the inlets.
I use penn 10 or 9 bait caster reels. Why? Because I enjoy untangling birdnests.

If you are at Morningstar Marina, just push off the dock and idle over toward the dock next door (Thunderbolt Harbor) and try casting just inside the weed line.. I have caught some pretty nice reds fishing the holes from that dock (I own a condo there). Dependint on the time of year, the trout fishing is pretty good all up and down the creeks and rivers. Other times, there ain't a trout to be found. When in doubt go with live shrimp!!

And if all else fails, dock up at Morningstar and head to Tubby's Tank House for some cold beer and seafood :thumbsup:

JiminGA, we must of had the same teacher.
It also helps to have a stock bar under the console.
