Fishing Myrtle Beach to Georgetown. North Myrtle Beach Fishing at its finest
February 28, 2013
Wind was howling 25-35 mph and with the 52 degree air it felt COLD. Water temp was right around 60 degrees somehow ( due to the bright sun ) and my clients were wanting to go fishing even though they had been enough to know that conditions were less than favorable for a big catch. First flat we went by we saw a couple Redfish blow off a bank. Too far and shallow to get to . Next stop had a single swim by with no chance to cast to him. Next stop we chummed heavy with fresh shrimp for about 1/2 hr without a bite. Off a couple hundred yards saw another guide fishing and we watched as they caught a couple redfish in a small spot. 15 minutes later they caught another one. When they caught their 4 th fish I broke down and called him and asked if we could move in close to them to try and get my guys some fish. He said sure and after 10 minutes getting anchored in the howling wind we were set up. An hour and a half later we had caught over a dozen Black Drum in the 2-4 pound range and a few nice Redfish from 3-4 pounds. I would never force myself into a small area where someone was already fishing , though I have had it happen numerous times to me by people who do not understand courtesy on the water ( some are even fishing guides ) , but it was really nice of Mark Dixon on Shallow Minded Charters to bring us in on his pod of fish. Courtesy and cooperation make for a great time on the water and his clients and mine had a blast catching double digits of nice fish on what could have been a really tough day.
March is here and hopefully warmer temps and the fish are biting . The phone has been ringing and reservations are picking up. Please reserve your trips now for the Spring and Summer. It hurts me as much as you when availability gets so tight it doesn't fit your schedule. Book today and lets go catch em up.
We did 4 Gulfstream trips in January and early February and caught WAHOO every trip. The best day we had 5 from 40-60 pounds and a caught a confused 15 pound Mahi Mahi.
