Are there any places around SC that are productive for surf casting ....like is done on the Banks of the US Carolinas and the US Gulf coast?

the nationals just throw a line into the ocean from the shore. I suppose theres bait on the end. and they always catch something. I see them daily in the morning or at dusk. even the small boys know the technique.

Pretty much all of San Carlos gives you a good place to do some surf fishing.

Most productive sites will have rocky bottoms looking for "cochitos" (triggerfish) and cabrillas (leopard grouper). Clasic example would be the areas along "piedras pintas" & back going north by "la manga". Again, these 2 species are most of the times caught using either squid or shrimp for bait.

The area over by charlies rock is also a good spot to try. I just saw this picture online of a niiiice Crevalle Jack landed just last Friday from that exact spot.

Lots of other areas to try too over in the Guaymas area. I caught a nice Rooster fish over there, and most of the reports I've heard about them come from that area.

I normally go late on the afternoon during week days (after work) and early on the mornings during the weekends but really any time of day would do, I've been out there at 2 - 3 PM and had a blast with up to 20 fish captured. While you are at it, please go ahead and practice some catch and release, that's what I do when fishing from the surf and I encourage my kids to think the same way. If we need some fish to eat we'll keep a couple but that's really only a few every couple of months.

As always, the nicer part of going out fishing at dusk is the incredible sunset views we get most everyday around here.

Give me a shout if you're ever interested and need a guide around town.

Hey There.

Just for the record, this is what perrita means

I actually have and it is effortless for as long as there's not much wind at the time. Since your line is loose it can get a little messy when the wind is blowing.

Lots of different ways to do it. Some people just show up, starts unwinding their line out of their spool (here is were it can get messy) an into the ground and step on the spool so you don't loose it [wink].

Lots of other people just gets either a bigger diameter spool or they replace it with a coca cola bottle (2 or 3L bottle), that way they can throw the sinker + bait and then just point the bottle out on the direction it is going thru the air. This way also helps you as you start "reeling" your line back on the bottle and avoid getting the line all tangled up on your feet.

Check this youtube video so you can get the idea

As far as hooks and sinkers, most people use a small hook, size 13 or 14. Also, since we are trying to do it the real way, I see people use an old spark plug for a sinker although I've even done it using a rock or a nut when I'm out of sinkers and don't want to make it back home just yet [thumb].

At last, we get to the how do you throw it, well let's just first start by getting a disclaimer out here as I wouldn't want to hear ya'll lost an eye doing it [rofl]. The way to go is pretty much you start doing it like you see the cowboys do it with their lariat, something like this:

Tirando la linea de pesca

Let me know how it goes if you try it.

Trigger fish are excellent on the grill. Just gut the fish and wash out the insides. Leave the skin on but remove the scales. Then load the inside with mayonnaise, onions, tomatoes and a little garlic, salt and pepper. Cook on each side for about 10 minutes then take a tortilla and scape the meat onto the tortilla. Yummy yummy tastes good in your tummy tummy.
