There was a record catch recently.
Gerald Granier, a.k.a. “Jiggin’ Jerry,” of Round O caught a new Mount Pleasant Pier record Spotted Sea Trout on Jan. 2. The fish weighed in at 4 lbs., 9 oz. and was 24 in. long. Billy Bay artificial shrimp was the bait used. The Mount Pleasant Pier is located adjacent to the Mount Pleasant Memorial Waterfront Park at the foot of the Ravenel Bridge (photo by Chris Pounder, Charleston County Park & Recreation Commission).
