Pawleys Island Fishing Charters and Reports
June is here and things are getting hot! Pawleys Island Fishing Report for early summer. Water temps are rising, large schools of mullet and menhaden are pouring into the inlets and the fish are taking advantage! Big sharks and Bull Drum are feeding under bait pods along the beaches and deep channels. Live and cut bait on Carolina rigs have been the most productive for Big Drum. These big fish are our spawning stock and we must handle them with care. Bait fishing for bull Drum I use short leaders with 8/0 circle hooks to prevent gut hooking them.
Flounder and Speckled Sea Trout Report
The Flounder fishing in the creeks have been red hot. When Flounder Fishing I prefer mud minnows and artificial lures like Berkley Gulp baits. I rig live or gulp baits on a 1/4 oz jig head and work the baits around oyster points and creeks mouths. Sea Trout fishing has been hit or miss due to the fresh water from last weeks rains. The fresh water should flush out to the Ocean in after a few tide exchanges. Sea trout are sensitive to salinity changes so I keep and eye on the tide charts and weather data. Trout need high salinity and clear water moving water. Keep an eye out for our long awaited tailing tides and get after those tailing Redfish on the flats. Summer is the best time to catch tailing Redfish on the flats. Check back for more Pawleys Island Fishing Reports.
