Myrtle Beach fishing charters during winter can be a great experience for anglers looking to get out on the water. Although the weather can be cold and windy, there is still plenty of fish that can be caught. Inshore species such as redfish, black drum, and flounder are all possibilities when fishing in this area. So if you’re looking for a fun and challenging day on the water, consider booking a trip with a local fishing guide during winter in Myrtle Beach.
Wintertime Fishing In Myrtle Beach
One of the best things about winter fishing in Myrtle Beach is that there are so many options. The water temperature hovers around 50 degrees, which may not sound ideal but is actually perfect for a lot of fish species. Redfish and spotted seatrout are reliable options to target all winter, with other inshore gamefish like black drum also making an appearance. Another inshore species that is quite popular and delicious that is commonly caught during winter in the greater Myrtle beach area is the Spanish Mackerel.
If you’re interested in taking up some fly fishing this time of year, Myrtle is the place to do it. This is the best time to practice your casts in the flats or any other shallow waters, as the fish will tend to bunch up a little bit more, allowing for a higher percentage of catches.
Anything that looks like a crab or shrimp going into the water is a sure target for one of the most infamous inshore predators: the redfish. Fishing in the winter is all about inshore flats and inlets. The shallow waters provided in these locations are prime locations for gamefish and baitfish alike looking for a warm place to forage. Fish like flounder will be prominent in rivers and really anywhere with moving water.
Spotted seatrout is also popular during winter months, and can be found in similar locations as redfish. So whether you’re a seasoned fisherman or just getting started, there’s plenty of opportunity to enjoy some winter fishing in Myrtle Beach.
