Little River/ North Myrtle Beach (SC) Fishing Report – Updated August 7

  • by Jay

Inshore: Captain Patrick “Smiley” Kelly (843-361-7445) reports that redfish both under and over the slot are both biting well, with the smaller puppy drum taking live shrimp, finger mullet, and Gulp! baits and the bigger fish wanting cut or live mullet.  Small black drum have been very abundant and they are eating both live shrimp and fresh, cut dead shrimp.  Flounder fishing has been strong, with Gulp! shrimp fished on a ¼ ounce jighead producing (as well as live mud minnows/ finger mullet).  A 9 ½ pound fish was caught on one of their boats on Gulp! last month!  Trout are still taking topwater lures in the morning, and live shrimp fished under a popping cork as well as Gulp! on a ¼ ounce jighead are also working.

Cherry Grove Pier (843-249-1625) reports that lots of smaller whiting, some small flounder, and pompano are being caught off the pier.  Recently there was also a run of small spadefish but kings and Spanish have not been around since May.

Nearshore Captain Smiley reports that lots of sharks (Atlantic Sharpnose, Blacktip) as well as kings and Spanish have been caught.
