Myrtle Beach Fishing is FUN for the whole family

The fall fishing is here in the Myrtle Beach area and seems to be getting better day by day.  Redfish, flounder, speckled trout, gray trout, sheephead, and black drum are all roaming the inshore and backwaters of Ocean Isle Beach, Sunset Beach, Cherry Grover, Littler River and Myrtle Beach.  King mackerel are here on the beach out to 20 miles. The spanish mackerel and bluefish are still here and tighter then ever. The wahoo and blackfin tuna bite is AWESOME in the Gulf Stream this time of year.

  Inshore carolina slams and double digit days of redfish and speckled have been the norm on most of my charters recently.  There is still a tough day here and there, but overall the fishing is good.  October and November are a couple of our peak months with a wide variety of fish to pursue and a minimal amount of boat traffic on the water. 

 The redfish bite has been up and down with the dirty water we had for a couple of weeks.  The water has really cleaned up and the reds seem to be feeding much better recently.  Live mullet minnows on carolina rigs have been working best.  We are also locating reds by throwing Gulp baits.  The Big Bull Redfish are here at the Little River Jetties we are catching them on carolina rigs with circle hooks and short leader with live mullet. The mullet are thick at jetties. There are also some small schools of reds on the flats. The redfish bite should continue to get better as we get into October and throughout the winter months.  

The speckled trout fishing has really picked up recently and the specs are getting bigger.  Double digit days have been common and most have been caught on a variety of artificial bait like jerkbaits and gulp shrimp. Live shrimp on float rigs will always do the trick on hungry specs and normally catch fish when they will not hit artificial The bigger speckled trout are coming on mullet minnows on carolina rigs.  Look for the trout fishing to get better and continue thru December.  

The flounder fishing is still good and should continue thru mid November.  Most of the flounder on my charters have been caught throwing Gulp Baits,We have also picked up a few flounder on live mullet minnows, with a 7lbs flounder caught this past week on a live mullet.  This is the time of year to catch larger flounder in the Myrtle Beach area and the creeks of Ocean Isle, Sunset Beach, Calabash, Little River and Cherry Grove,.  

October is a great time of year to catch king mackerel on the beach and the fish are normally larger this time of year. Some of my best days of king mackerel fishing has been this time of year. The bait is thick on the beach right now with school of pogies up and down Myrtle Beach. We have been catching our limit of kings in just a few hours and releasing the rest. North Myrtle Beach Fishing Charters and Captain Keith Logan was the first to find the kings again this year and catch kings days before anyone could figure out when they were.  

The wahoo and blackfin tuna bite is off the chain this time of year. With double digit hook ups and landings. This is a 12 hour gulf stream trip to catch them. We have catching them high speed trolling and pull ballyhoo. Our charters have been tired of catching wahoo and blackfin tuna by lunch time. The bite is only going to get better and the wahoo get bigger as we get in to October and November these months are known for the 60 to 80lbs wahoo with some in the 90 to 100lbs range mixed in with the packs.
