The weather is HOT along the Grand Strand, in South Carolina. This is our busiest time of year for visitors coming to enjoy the golfing, dining and fishing in the area. I have been running two trips a day so guests can experience our local waters where the lowcountry begins.
When I say hot, I mean it. The water temperatures have reached as high as 88°, and we have had days with the heat index above 110°. These temperatures always make light tackle fishing in the creeks ‘hit or miss’. We’ve had some great days and some tough days while battling the heat.
There is a ton of bait in Winyah Bay, and the beaches are covered from Debordieu to Myrtle Beach. I saw tarpon and sharks feeding on menhaden from the beach at Pawleys Island last weekend.
Speaking of tarpon!.. the featured photo was taken by repeat client, Ray, while his son, Ross, was fighting this stud! We fished all day to get this one, but persistence paid off. Ross handled this nearly 100lb fish like a pro, and had him boat-side in under 30 minutes.
The time and place for tarpon fishing is here, in August. This fish doesn’t mind the heat, and is honestly the best option to target this time of year (if you’re up for it). If you want to try for the fish of a lifetime, call me to book your tarpon charter today.
The past few weeks have brought guests from North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Virginia. We have had some very productive fishing trips like one from the photo below of Mason holding a nice Sheepshead. Dan and his boys did a great job catching these sneaky fish.
