I told my boys I would take them fishing this week. I am not a big time fisherman, just wanted somewhere safe to stand on the bank and catch a few. Where in the Summerville area can I go to enjoy a decent day of fishing? When I lived in GA, there was a pay-lake we visited that was fully stocked and very clean.

Not far from Summerville, you can take them to Crowfield in GC. There are 2 large lakes that are stocked every year. You can fish right off the main drag or pull down one of the side roads.

In Moncks Corner, you can goto Foxbank Plantation, its off HWY 52 on the left hand side. HUGE lake back in there as well. I believe you can get to it from Cypress Gardens Rd.

Also Summerville there's a large pond off Winter Rd, which is off 176 > Not 100% sure what kind of access they have??

Thanks. I was told that I had to live in Crowfield to fish there, but I have ran into others who fish, but do not live there either.

I will check out the others too.

Yea for Crowfield, I was kinda hinting to "pull off the main drag" and walk to the lake ... Less chance of the fishing police finding you

Ok, first and foremost make sure you get a fishing license for anyone over the age of 15, it is either $7 or $10 dollars and will save you a $250.00 ticket....

Wagon Wheel Lake up on Hwy 78 leaving out of Summerville towards St. George used to be a pay lake not sure if it is still open...

Lake Moultrie has lots of lake access points all around it that you can fish from, go to Moncks Corner to one of the bait shops and ask where to go to catch the fish.....

Can not wait to start fishing down there. I do a lot of Salmon and Steelehead fishing up here in Washington St. I really like the license costs down there. Here in Wa it's about $50 a year for salt and freshwater license and keeps going up every year. I have a 23' trophy all loaded up for fishing up here but I am going to sell to buy a boat down there. Probably dont have much of a use for downriggers and such down there? Once I get there I'll start looking for a good set up there. Probably do a few guided trips to figure what the fishermen use, bait/gear/best set ups etc. I'd like to get a boat that I can do some deep water fishing as well as inshore....

Bummer is the 8 tackle boxes of salmon gear I have but on the positive side is get get to buy new gear!!! I thnk some of my rods will work down there? 9 1/2 to 11' med rods

Ole Tom, I like you style!

Thanks....

I would keep the boat, Trophies are all over down here, and it is cheaper to regear your boat than get a new one. Rick can help with the guiding and gear....

A downrigger or two are used here on a regular basis (ocean fishing for king mackerel & such). If you have 4 or more, you might think of selling some to your friends before you move. There are plenty of Bayliners (Trophy) fishing down here so the boat won't be out of place. Your 23'er should get you into plenty of inshore/nearshore fishing.

I'd only sell that boat if you don't want the hassle of trailering it down here or if you just are ready for a new toy. There are plenty of boats here if you just want a new one.

Best of luck!
