Anyone know if you can still get out to Pickens with fishing poles? Was gonna try to do some surf fishing before the black tide rolls in. Anyone with info, please let me know ASAP.

We went Sunday evening with no problem. Fished the Pickens pier to the point. Saw a couple of others out on the pier and on the beach. The fishing ban issued on Sunday only pertained to off-shore fishermen at that time. I haven't heard that it's changed.

Thanks for the info. Went out there today, caught 5 pomps, 2 reds, and a CRAP ton of catfish. 1 of the pomps was a little over 3lbs, the rest were smaller migratory fish. 1 red at 26 and the released one was 30. All caught on fleas we raked from the shore. Awful rip tide today and some muddy water. Bite hit around 11:00, then quit about noon. 5oz weights were struggling to keep the lines straight out. Water should clear up by tomorrow and the surf should be near dead. Good luck to anyone that can make it tomorrow, the bite was good considering the conditions. Also, the road was a little flooded, if you drive a small car be sure to slow down in the flooded areas.
