i'm still undecided on what vehicle we are taking down so if you have larger items let me know ahead of time it will possibly help my wife and i decide between the cruiser or pilot.

I haven't been fishing lately but I grew up here. Always good surf fishing near Ft. Moultrie (shrimp and mud minnows) I usualy use a "slider rig". Lots of flounder and such.

The inlet between Sullivan's and IOP is pretty good, just watch the current.

Between Dewee's and IOP there is a deep hole on the intercoastal side that always has alot of sharks.

There is also alot of good fishing behind Goat Island. Watch the tide though it gets a little shallow. Best place to go in is at the tip of the island near the IOP connector.

Sounds good to me. I wasn't in the loop when you worked out the details with David. I have been putting all the spare parts aside for you. We are not near where I would like to be with the swap but I have been working 6 days a week and David has been busy to.I knew you wanted the spare parts just not which ones. Just let me know what parts you need first and that he can easily transport and I'll get them together.

Be VERY careful of Breeches inlet. Many people have drowned there. On the other hand there is a creek on the other side that has many docks. It's the same creek the The Boathouse restaurant is on. I have caught many reds there and they are running good right now. Also, since you are in a Kayak I would hit the grass at higher tides. I use to kayak fish a lot and I loved getting in the grass and looking for tailing reds. Be careful though. if you do not know what to look for you can sink in the mud and possibly drown. The shorter spartina grass is what you want. the ground is more firm and you can walk it. The taller greener grass in a no no. There are a lot of creeks in that area and most hold fish.

Yeah, I'm at Scout Camp all week, internet just got up, but is a little slow. I'll get all of the parts to Marshall soon, I'm sure I'll be going up that way.

I don't do all that much fishing, but like Michael said, around Breach Inlet and in Hamlin Creek you will have good luck with live bait. Warm weather you won't catch much on cut bait that you would want to keep. Reds are definatly running.
