You could win a fishing kayak this Saturday at the Folly Pier!! Round up your family and fishing buddies Saturday, August 15th, 6:00am – 2:00pm for the 20th Annual Folly Pier Fishing Tournament!! Registration includes free lunch and a chance to win great prizes provided by Haddrell’s Point Tackle, Dominos, and Charleston County Parks. Prize categories include adult, lady, senior (60+), youth (12 & under), best 5 fish, and king mackerel. To celebrate the 20th Anniversary we have a special grand prize fishing kayak that can be won by anybody who reels in a pier record during the tournament. No pressure though, if a record isn’t broken then we’re raffling off the kayak!! That’s right, somebody is walking out with the grand prize regardless.
As for the latest and greatest caught on the pier, we've been weighing plenty of sea trout in the pound plus range. The black drum continue to be seen in the shallow surf along with plenty of bait fish consisting of blues, pompanos, and whiting. In addition, the big bull reds have returned with some measuring in at three feet in length.
