Well I believe winter is finally winding down and the fishing is heating up. Gonna hit the 70's this week and we will be hunting Redfish back in the marsh.

Should be some big Wahoo and Blackfin Tuna out there . Close to shore 3-10 miles plenty of sharks and sea bass available. 15-40 miles out some real big bass and other big bottom dwellers avail too. King Mackerel will show in April along with Cobia. Book today and well go get em !

Rain and wind today but 70 yesterday. Big Wahoo and Blackfin Tuna in the Gulfstream all winter and Spring as well as Sailfish and Mako Shark and Mahi Mahi, We just need the weather to cooperate. The Gulfstream trip is around 70 miles offshore and a 10-12 hr day. On shorter trips 10-30 miles out we have big sea bass and lots of them eating about everything you throw to them-delicious , also some nice flounder bite in the deep water some trips . Within 3-7 miles of the beach we have plenty of 2-4 ft sharks available to tussle with all winter. In the marsh and creeks the redfish are here and getting better every week . They really get fired up in March as well as the black drum. And lastly, dont forget the rental home we have right on the water in Cherry Grove, last April through June we had days with dozens of Flounder caught right off the dock. Ill put my small boat in there and run trips fishing right behind the house or you can rent it and fish from the private dock if you stay there. Weather is tough today but the phone has been ringing as everyone sets up their Spring and Summer fishing reservations.. You can see pics of Cherry Grove home by clicking link at top of page or going to www.cherrygrovehome.com . Shoot me a text to reserve your trip and answer any questions. I am the owner and captain of both my boats , not a booking service with hired help. When you book with me , you fish with me. There are a lot of "businessmen" buying cheap boats and hiring new captains trying to steal market share from full time professional guides like myself. If your primary goal is to get the "cheapest fishing trip ", you can do that in Myrtle Beach, just not with me. I offer high quality tackle boats and experiences. Some days have better catches than others but if you fish with me you will be fishing with a full time professional guide who has been doing this for a living over 20 years , I look forward to fishing with you- Capt Cush

1007 lb Bluefin tuna caught off Moorehead City 2 days ago. Still hoping to get one this month off our coast. Wahoo bite and Blackfin Tuna chewing on full day gulfstream trips. That bite will last til May when the Mahi Mahi take over. Shots at Sailfish all winter and Spring as well.
Inshore, the cold should have the redfish stacked up in deep holes all winter. I plan to get out after them once this rain and wind and cold die down. Big black sea bass available also as this is best time of year to get limits of the 2-5 pound fish that are in the grouper family. Sharks are numerous all winter as well from2-4 ft long, fun on light tackle and steady action. Give me a call and lets go get after them !
Inshore bite is incredible right now. On our recent inshore trip this week we had over 30 speckled trout, 15 Black Drum, 3 Redfish and a Flounder. all in 3 1/2 hours. We just hit the right place at the right time.
Offshore in the Gulfstream last week we had Wahoo in the 40 pound range and a beautiful Sailfish . Bottom fishing we have seen Grouper to 20 lbs and fat Sea Bass to 4 1/2 lbs. Great Fall fishing going on right now.

We had a nice Sailfish this week on a gulfstream trip and plenty snapper and big Sea Bass. On inshore trips we ve been landing some nice keeper flounder and Redfish. The big 20-40 lb redfish will be posting any day and with the tremendous amount of mullet and pogies in the water the steady inshore run of reds and trout will be right on time. 8 hr trips will get you shots at Sailfish this month and African Pompano Amberjack Barracuda and Mahi. You name it and we ll make a plan to go get em! BTW been an incredibly busy summer thus the lack of updates but thankyou to all my clients that made this season a success.

Wind has kept us inshore the last couple weeks and thankfully the inshore fishing has been incredible. Redfish, Speckled Trout, Black Drum, Sheepshead, Tautog have all been biting with many trips catching all these species. The last couple days have been amazing with the Speckled Trout schooled up and we caught 60-70 yesterday in an hour with them hitting live shrimp, Gulp baits and DOA's every cast - yes EVERY cast for 45 minutes. Best Trout bite I have ever experienced. We could have caught a couple hundred but thanksgiving commitments drove me off the water. Offshore, this is PEAK time of year for Wahoo and Blackfin Tuna as well as bottom fish like snapper, grouper and sea bass. Weather and seas will lay out soon, and we ll be ready to go get em. Happy Thanksgiving everyone-

King Mackerel bite fired off strong last week and we caught some healthy Amberjack as well . Inshore has stayed steady and fun with Redfish and some Speckled Trout this week as well as some nice Stripers. Our biggest Redfish this week was a healthy 46 inch 40+ pounder. Hoping the big ones stay around . Heading down the beach to a secret winter trout hole later today- usually this time of year you can catch dozens or more from 1-5 pounds. Have a shot at the big Redfish and sharks while fishing 'em too. Its a long run down the beach but within a 1/2 mile of the beach and from now til Christmas is an epic fishery and fun .

Today we trolled the beach on a 4 hr trip and caught 3 nice Spanish Mackerel around 2-3 pounds and another 15 DINK throwback Spanish Mackerel that were awfully small. We then ran offshore 6 miles and caught a baby bonita and then anchored up to fish for sharks. We chummed heavy and worked a sabiki rig for live bait that 7 yr old Evan reeled in for us over and over , catching small grunts, pinfish and greenbacks. All 1/2 pound or less but 3 and 4 at a time gave Evan a reason to enjoy it. Then another reason came , in the form of a 25 -30 pound Barracuda which ripped a greenback herring under a ballon rig a new one and jumped 8 feet in the air blazing the line off the reel the fish was attached to. Big Barracuda around now and some big Spanish mack in the 3-7 pound range as well as Jumbo Redfish and Flounder inshore. Call today and come get you some, fishing is on !
Offshore on 6-12 hr trips we have been catching Wahoo, African Pompano, Grouper and King Mackerel as well as some monster sharks. Also on 10-12 hr gulfstream trips have shots at all that and Billfish and Tunas !!

When you Fish Myrtle Beach with your fishing guide Capt Cush , you will fish North Myrtle Beach and you will fish Little River waters as well as fish Myrtle Beach SC and Sunset Beach and Ocean Isle Beach North Carolina waters since the Inter Coastal waterway winds through the town of Little River and Calabash as it exits to the Ocean out through the Little River Jetties. Just North of the Jetties is the quiet Island Town of Sunset Beach North Carolina. It is a small Island community that has its own ocean Inlet called Tubbs Inlet . This is where we fish for Flounder in the Spring and early Summer. Inlet fishing here is quiet and peaceful and while drifting along the blue water inside Tubbs Inlet you will have a great chance fishing for a tasty Flounder dinner. The Myrtle Beach Charter Boat " Bite Me" is a 22 ft Triton Bay Boat powered by a quiet and powerful Yamaha 225 horsepower outboard four stroke engine for inshore and near-shore fishing and sightseeing trips.
The Myrtle Beach Charterboat "Bite Me Harder" is a 35 foot pro-line center console fishing boat powered by new twin 250 hp yamaha four stroke engines for fishing offshore Myrtle Beach and Gulfstream trips and sightseeing trips around North Myrtle Beach and Little River as we look at Eagles , Sea Turtles and Dolphins. There are even Shrimp Boats pulling in their nets with tasty local South Carolina shrimp and sometimes we can see sharks running through the bycatch being thrown over by the fishing boats. . It is a fun, fast and fish catching boat and you will definately get looks from other boats and people fishing as we blow by on our way out to the blue Atlantic on our way out to offshore fish or cruise.

You never know what you will see as I found out in November when a friendly manatee popped up beside our boat while fishing. A couple years ago when I was coming in from a cold and successful winter Redfish trip we found a Harbour Seal sunning itself on a jetski lift. It really is magical on the water and even though I am out on the water every week throughout the year I still get surprised and amazed by what I see.
