Greater Murrells Inlet (SC) Summer Fishing Report – Updated August 18

  • by Jay

Inshore: Perry’s Bait Tackle (843-651-2895) in Murrells Inlet and Captain J of Fishful Thinking Guide Service (843-902-0356) report that flounder catches have slowed, but mullet are picking up some fish in the shallows early and late.  Smaller redfish are also feeding on mullet (with bigger fish hard to come by), and some nice-sized trout are eating shrimp during the day as well as lures early and late.   A lot of black drum beneath the slot are being picked up.

Surf, pier and jetty:  Perry’s reports that weakfish have started to show up off the ledges around Surfside Beach and whiting, croaker and bluefish are also being caught.

Nearshore: Kings and mackerels have gotten scarce but spadefish are prolific around the nearshore reefs.
