As the southern sun radiates over the coastal waters of South Carolina, avid anglers and those seeking a taste of the marine life are drawn to the area’s rich fishing grounds. With the onset of June, the fishing season in Myrtle Beach, Murrells Inlet, and Pawleys Island is set to usher in some unique opportunities.

The June Fishing Scene

June is an exceptional time for fishing in these South Carolinian areas. As temperatures rise, the waters come alive with a plethora of species. Kingfish, Spanish Mackerel, and Snapper, known for their increased activity during this period, will be ready for those adventurous enough to venture a few miles offshore. Equally, the inshore scene is expected to be buzzing, with Redfish, Trout, and Flounder providing anglers an unparalleled sporting experience.

Myrtle Beach: The King of Beaches

Myrtle Beach is a fishing hotspot in June. The warm coastal waters make it a sought-after spot for various species, including the Red Drum, Flounder, Black Drum, and the Spotted Seatrout, each poised to make their presence felt. Whether you’re an experienced angler or a novice, Myrtle Beach offers the opportunity to escape the crowds and have an unforgettable fishing experience. So, gear up and prepare for an adventurous day on the water.

Murrells Inlet: The Seafood Capital

Historically known as the “Seafood Capital of South Carolina,” Murrells Inlet boasts a rich fishing tradition. With the arrival of June, Murrells Inlet becomes a mecca for anglers targeting inshore species. We can look forward to an uptick in catches of Sheepshead and Spotted Seatrout during this month. This charming fishing village is not only known for its seafood but also for its serene surroundings and spectacular fishing grounds.

Pawleys Island: A Fishing Paradise

Just a short drive from the hustle and bustle of Myrtle Beach lies Pawleys Island. Known for its laid-back atmosphere and picturesque backcountry waters, Pawleys Island is an angler’s paradise. This area offers unparalleled inshore and nearshore fishing, and the catch will be abundant, with Red Drum, Flounder, Trout, and Black Drum, among others, set to feature prominently.
