Spring fishing in Myrtle Beach is heating up along with the temperatures as inshore species are in their spring patterns. The redfish are getting more active, trout are coming out of their hiding places, and flounder are back in the creeks. While it has been a windy April, getting out there in the early morning has proven worthwhile.

Topwater Fishing

I have been hitting the topwater fishing for trout and redfish pretty hard over the past week. Seeing these fish blow up the surface as they attack your bait is the most exciting event you’ll experience while inshore fishing. The fish have been attracted to the traditional “walk the dog” presentation, but they began looking for a “twitch-pause” later this week. Every day is different, and making adjustments to your presentation can make a big difference in the small timeframe for an early morning topwater bite.

Redfish Update

The redfish have split up into smaller schools mostly on the move. We have been catching decent numbers, and have already caught a few bulls coming in for the Spring spawn. Many of our reds have been caught as they cruise around the structures we’re targeting. They are also stalking grasslines for the unlucky pogie or glass minnow.  We have landed on some schools that stick together, but some days require moving around to make the most of your day.

Spring Time Trout!

After a mostly mild winter and a spring mostly sparing us from rain, the trout are working in their Spring pre-spawn patterns. We have found small schools of larger fish showing up from Myrtle Beach to Georgetown. Bait has ranged from mud minnows and artificial shrimp under a popping cork to some fish even eating cut shrimp. They are full of eggs, and we are releasing all fish over 20 inches so they will hopefully have a chance at a good spawn.

This is a fun time of year to be on the water with the mild temperatures and cooperative fish. There are also a variety of options ranging from topwater, live bait, and venturing out to one of the nearshore reefs. Our Spring season in Myrtle Beach and Winyah Bay is here!
