Our fishing guides have been very busy the last few weeks guiding folks visiting Myrtle Beach for Spring Break. While the weather and fishing have not been spectacular, we’ve still managed some memorable catches even in challenging conditions. Most of our Spring Break fishing trips are family groups which is always a lot of fun for our fishing guides as our goal is to make memories that will last a lifetime for these families.
We’ve experienced a lot of windy days this Spring which has kept us focused on inshore fishing in shallow water. We’re finding the usual suspects like flounder, trout and redfish as well as a few bonnet head sharks. Water temperatures continue to climb on a daily basis and life is quickly returning to the coastal waters of South Carolina. Look for the flounder bite to continue to improve in the coming weeks, as well as redfish and sharks as they follow schools of baitfish back into the shallow estuaries.
On the calmer days, we’ve been fishing the nearshore wrecks for various species like trout, sheepshead, bluefish and redfish. Spanish Mackerel and King Mackerel have also make a strong appearance as menhaden schools begin to migrate in from the offshore waters.
Fishing will continue to improve in April as our weather settles into a more stable pattern. If you are planning a trip to Myrtle Beach in the coming weeks and would like to get on the water with us, be sure and book in advance as dates are filling up fast.
