Fishing Myrtle Beach to Georgetown. North Myrtle Beach Fishing at its finest
Happy Easter! On a 6 hour North Myrtle Beach fishing trip today and caught 2 flounder. One 12 inches and the other 16 1/2 inches and fat. First keeper flounder of the year for the "Bite Me" boat. Got both on jig heads with mud minnows. Also found a school of reds mulling in the creek. I'd push towards them and they'd slowly pull back a little. Pole towards them and they'd pull back the same distance. Waited them out and hooked 3 ,caught 2. 18 inch red and 17 inch red both on gulp shrimp baits. Tried for the trout in the waterway and creeks off and on during the day with DOA's and Gulp's and Power Shrimp but no Trout bites. Water was real clear and blue and looked perfect for 'em but maybe next trip. I know they are there, lets go get 'em! Michael and Jason were with me from NC and made for good fishing partners. Main target was Redfish so we concentrated on them for most of the trip. Weather was absolutely perfect and this time of year a slow bite can explode into furious action in an instant. I have a good feeling next trip will be an inshore slam with Red Trout and Flounder. The sunny warming days are getting me more active and I think the fish are feeling it too.

Been up in the creeks looking for and finding redfish the last week or so. The reds have been skittish but managed to catch 4 last trip out and had a bruiser over 30 inches on for a few minutes till he ran around an oyster bar. After picking at em for a few hours we headed offshore since the seas were slick and tried for Sheephead and Black Bass. Well, if you like action, we had action. A couple of keeper Sea Bass and dozens and dozens of sharks. When you brought one up 4 or 5 followed him to the boat where you could sight cast to them. They were anywhere from 2-4 feet long and kept us busy for a while. We then started prospecting for trout which have slowly shown up the last 1 1/2 weeks. Have a trip in am and will report back, this time with camera . Let' s go fishing. Water temp is up and you dont even have to wear a wool cap anymore. Heck, I even wore shorts on the last trip. Thank goodness spring is here!March 19, 2010
Reds on the shallow flats at low tides, sharks eating at the nearshore wrecks, Trout starting to post as well. Weather finally cooperating.

Had three fisherman come out looking to have a good time and try something besides golf while in town. We went out and caught 50 or 60 Sea Bass with some real nice keepers and 8 or so sharks . We had a good time. The redfish are in the creeks and the Sea Bass are biting as well as sharks so come on out and let's go get 'em.

Had Kyle and Crystal and Heidi out looking for fish on the 7th. They were originally from Minnesota so figured what the heck, why not try fishing since it was Kyle's and Heidi's 25th anniversary. We left dock at 10 am in 34 degree weather and shot out about 5 miles to some ledges and caught some sea bass and sharks. Some of the sea bass were nice keeper size and the sharks were 2-4 foot spiny dog sharks. Water was flat calm and they were great to have out. Have another shark trip booked this weekend coming up but there are some nice weather days coming up if you would like to try and get out there. Reds are in the creeks and still can have a shot at a trout now. Give me a call and lets go get 'em.

Happy New Year! Bluefin trip was good but the fish didnt bite, none have been caught in the last week in the Myrtle Beach to Southport area. We made it out a few days ago and the swells were pretty big, 3-5 foot or so and weather started turning around 11 am to the rougher side. Headed into shallower water and saw a 30 foot long whale around 1 pm however and followed him for 1/2 hour. Pretty amazing. I Think this Monday or Tuesday the wind may finally lay down enough to try again, we'll see.
