Mid Summer Fishing Report for the Myrtle Beach Area 2016
Summer is in full swing and it’s down right HOT here in Myrtle Beach. The heat index has been over 100 degrees so we’ve been hitting the water at day break to beat the heat and catch the fish at the most opportune time. On our most productive fishing days we have been using light tackle rods rigged with gulp baits. The Redfish can’t resist them and it just makes for an easy lure. By late morning we have been changing to live bait and moving to deeper holding areas as the mercury rises. Flounder fishing has been fantastic on all sides of the tide near shorelines and creek mouths. Big bull Redfish and sharks have been biting under big bait pods as they wash into the inlets and bays as the tide rises. The next few weeks we will be focusing on fishing for Tarpon, as well as Redfish on the tailing tides. Keep checking the Captains Blog for the latest tips, tricks and reports.
