Myrtle Beach Fishing is FUN for the whole family!
The sweet sound of multiple reels screaming as each rod doubles over when your bait spread is suddenly ambushed by a school of Yellowfin Tuna or how bout a monster Wahoo skyrocketing on an outrigger bait and burning 300yds of line off of a 50 wide better yet, the beautiful yellow, green, and blue colors of a Mahi-Mahi as it jumps to free itself from the end of your line.. That’s Myrtle Beach Gulf Stream Fishing at its finest with Feedin’ Frenzy Charters and Captain Keith Logan.
Gulf Stream fishing out of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina is March thru mid June with it reaches its peak in April and May. Come and join in on the high speed action of stand-up tackle as you battle the fierce fighting creatures that call the Gulf Stream their home. The cobalt blue water of Gulf Stream is located some 60 miles offshore .
The wahoo are hanging around structure on the bottom and bait that is in the column. Mahi are schooled up around the Sargassum patches. Blackfin and Yellowfin Tuna are running the rip and hang around the temp. breaks. Trolling Ballyhoo on Capt. Joe Shute’s Fish Finder Shirts in black/purple or red/black. Capt. Joe Shute’s Fish Finder Wahoo Flasher with a Horse Ballyhoo on the planer line is a bomb. Barefoot Chin Weight with Ballyhoo on the long line works great of wahoo, mahi and tuna. South Chatham new “RPG” high speed wahoo lure is putting a hurt on the wahoo trolled at 12 to 15 knots.
The king mackerel fishing around Frying Pan Tower is still going good. Kings this time of year can be found in schools with fish ranging in size from the 6 to 12 pound “snakes” to the 30 plus pound “smokers”. Kings can be found in areas where the surface temperature is between 68 and 72 degrees and located over bottom structure, such as ledges, wrecks and any rough bottom, holding bait fish for feeding Kings. Water color change or temperature breaks may also hold Kings, as bait seems to gather up along these conditions. Trolling cigar minnows on 1oz and 4oz Pirate Plugs will produce the most kings for you.
Recreational vermillion snapper opens on April 1st. Vermillion snapper can be found in 75 to 150 feet of water. The best bait is cut Boston mackerel or any kind of cut will work. Be sure to fish about 10 to 20 feet of the bottom.
The Spring inshore fishing is at full speed and now is the time to get in on the angling action. With the middle winter and sunny days and temps in the 60s and 70s have keep the redfish, speckled trout and flounder hitting hard.
The redfish bite in the Intracoastal Waterway has been awesome. When the tide is high, fish near the grass at the edge of the docks and when the tide is low fish out in front of the docks. The best baits for redfish have been mud minnows or Gulp baits. The key in the spring is not to work the bait or lures too quickly as redfish won’t chase your very far. By far live shrimp have been the best baits but they are hard to find this time of year. A secret weapon for the redfish in the spring is a cut soft shell blue crab.
The Sunset Beach Bridge has been a good place to fish for trout, flounder and black drum. The Little River Jetty’s has produced a lot of nice redfish and trout. The flats and creeks has been a good place to find flounder.
