live bait

Is there any place around Charleston that you can buy live pin fish, menhadden, or other bait fish?

Haddrell’s generally carries mudminnows. Shrimp at times, although they haven’t had a lot this year.

I don’t know of anywhere that carries menhadden (they die too easily) or pin fish.

Menhadden are everywhere and can be easily caught with a cast net when the sun comes up. Just look for flipping on the water. They are in the harbor, way up the ashley, behind the fort, many many places.

I always catch my pinfish out by the cans, just using a sabiki. Poggies you can find all over the harbor.
