murrells inlet/myrtle beach

Well it's been some time since there was much to talk about but the fishing has got some better here in murrells inlet/ myrtle beach area. The bait pods are on the beach with some King Mackerel and Spanish. This past week, we caught a nice 35lb. King at the jetties around a large ball of bait fish. Another day we slow trolled some live bait around the 3-mile reef and had two Spanish over 5lbs. The

red Drum is still a little slow but a few are still being caught if you will give them time. Also Spanish are being caught trolling spoons with planners less than a mile off the beach so get out there and get you some while in the Murrells Inlet/Myrtle Beach area before they leave. If you need any info please fell free to call me @ 843 450 1430 and will try to help all we can. Good Fishing To All !! Capt. Shannon

Bio: The summer is here! Water temps are rising and the fishing is on! Some Flounder and Red Drum are being caught in the Inlets along with a few Trout. Fishing in Myrtle Beach/Murrells Inlet starts to pick-up in April when the water gets warmer. Myrtle Beach/Murrells Inlet fishing is good from April thru December and you can expect to catch anything from Flounder,Blue Fish,Spanish Mackerel,Trout and Red Drum. Later in the season,September/October, the Weakfish Trout move in on the beach and can be found between Myrtle Beach and the Murrells Inlet Jetties. November the water temp starts to drop and the true winter trout start moving in the creeks where they can be caught with shrimp under corks. As long as the weather is nice in Myrtle Beach/Murrells Inlet the fishing is good. When the COLD moves in somedays it's brutal!
