Big Paradise Island, Awendaw, ADVICE NEEDED

So…I went out and purchased a nice flats boat thinking the fish were just going to start jumping in the boat as I passed by…not the case. I live in Park West, I have been using the Paradise Island boat ramp and heading back towards MT. Pleasant. I can’t catch a cold right now…but the boat looks good! My days have been working the left side of the river, fishing around oyster beds, points and docks. I have yet to catch a redfish, I can catch a hand full of trout, but no flounder. Any local advice would be nice and very welcomed for a newbie to Charleston Fishing. Thanks in advance.

What color is your boat?

17’ ft white flats boat

Terrific. My experience is light colored boats catch more fish inshore

Scale down on your tackle …
