Shore Casting A Mid-Water Rig!

Depending on the areas you fish & water conditions it's sometimes better to keep your bait off the bottom. If there's bottom obstructions or low visibility it may hide your baited rigged from being detected. It's always good to be prepared for any conditions you fish in. So i'll demonstrate how to better present your bait to increase your chances of hooking-up.

I've been practicing this ideology using fish, squid, shrimp & crab for years. Live bait always works the best. I've hooked into Trevally, Ladyfish, Threadfin, Sharks, Rays & Bonefish using this method of suspending my baits. This really works well in a boat drifting over miles of reef & sand bars. Use your favorite bait & hook.

How To Ballon Baited Lines From Shore!

On this day the weather report called for high North winds, which rarely occurs. So i got up at 5am (brrrr) and went to Chocolate Beach. This is my preferred testing area to demonstrate fishing techniques. My friend Junior who works at that area told me the fishing has been bad there for weeks but i just needed to demonstrate how i ballon my baits from shore.

For this i used a 13'3" Daiwa Ballistic Rod with a Shimano Ultegra 10K spinner loaded with 380yd of 50lb Jerry Brown braid. The main reason to balloon out a rig is to get distance from shore to increase your chances of catching fish. Now if you want to drop a bait instead of having it on the surface you can do it 1 of 2 ways-
1) Use a hard sucking candy with a hole in it (like Life Savers), or drill a hole in a cough drop. Then tie a thread through that hole connecting the balloon to your bait rig. Depending on the candy used (Life Savers will be +-15min) it'll dissolve…

"Buying 2 more items needed for my brand new fishing kayak - put in the water once the ice melts on our fishing areas. Hit the lottery so we could retire and move near water to fish whenever we wanted. Catch the biggest fish on the head boat and win the fish pool. I always catch the first fish of the day, the mates laugh and tease my husband, but I say - well he always wins the pool for the biggest fish of the day. Rules in my home, I am not allowed to purchase any fresh fish we can catch ourselves. lol

John Mollahan left a comment on South Carolina Fishing
"I'm not from South Carolina, but have a few friends and former coworkers who relocated or retired to various areas of the state. I'm interested in doing the the same. In addition to fishing, I like a good round of golf. I've heard some great things about Lake Hartwell and Lake Keowee in the west end of the state along with Lake Murray and Lake Marion (I believe in more the mid state area). Any practicle info you can share on the fishing, golf and all around life style would be greatly appreciated. "
