Inshore: Perry’s Bait Tackle (843-651-2895) in Murrells Inlet and Captain J of Fishful Thinking Guide Service (843-902-0356) report that inshore fishing for most species is strong, perhaps because of a relative lack of bait in the creeks. Redfish and trout are biting well on live shrimp, Gulp baits, and finger mullet, and black drum are gorging on cut shrimp fished on the bottom. Inside Murrells Inlet spot are tearing up blood worms. Flounder fishing has been surprisingly slow with most of the fish caught undersized.
Surf, pier and jetty: Bull red drum are still biting well on menhaden and mullet fished around the jetties, and there are trout and black drum caught in the surf. Spot, whiting and croaker are also around.
