Beaufort (SC) Summer Fishing Report – Updated August 18

  • by Jay

Inshore: Bay Street Outfitters (843-524-5250) reports that redfish tailing action has been strong, and when good tailing tides coincide with the cooler morning water temperatures it will get even better.  Redfish are also chasing shrimp and they can be caught sight-fishing on low tide as well as around structure in the creeks.  Tarpon are present and feeding on mullet and menhaden around artificial reefs and rips, and flounder will eat shrimp.  Trout fishing has been pretty slow with the heat but it’s worth keeping your eyes open for tripletail in the rivers.

Hunting Island Pier (843-838-7437) reports that whiting, croaker, sharks and stringrays have comprised the main catch lately, with the occasional flounder mixed in.
