Myrtle Beach Inshore Fishing Report for August

The Myrtle Beach Inshore Fishing Report has picked back up. Light Tackle Inshore Fishing In Myrtle Beach is better day by day as the full moon goes away and the water keeps cooling off. But it has been kind of slow the last few week due the hot weather and hot water. It had the fish just not wanting to chew much at all. Now we are coming off the full moon and the some what cooler days the Redfish and Speckled Sea Trout are want to bite.

On our five hour charter we have been catching a good number of small under the slot redfish (aka Red Drum) along with a good number of Speckled Sea Trout that are just under size too. We are catching a few keeper Speckled Sea Trout in the sixteen to twenty inch. These make for good eating fish for dinner. Both the Redfish and Speckled Sea Trout put a good fight on the Light Tackle Penn Reels and Rods. This fishing has become more tide driven the last few weeks. So mornings is not always the better time fish.

The Black Drum are starting to pick back up too and bite. We have had day where we are catching twenty to thirty Black Drum with most being under size. We are catching some nice eighteen to twenty inch keep for dinner. These fish all so put a very good fight on Light Tackle. When we are a fishing for Black Drum are also catching a lot of Croakers. These are a good eating fish too.

The Flounder bite has been good when we can get out the ocean and fish for them them. The Flounder seem to move out the the Jetties and artificial reefs here in the August when the water gets hot. They seem to like the deeper cooler water. Most of the Flounder have been in the two to four pound range. When Flounder fish out in the ocean we have been catching Weakfish. This is a type of Trout that is very good to eat too.

For the more experienced fishermen and women or just want to spend more time on the water catching fish we do a five hour Light Tackle Inshore Fishing Charter. On this trip we still catch out bait so we have fresh live bait to fish with. This trip will give a extra hour of fishing time to catch more fish or the opportunity to fish out in ocean and around the jetties. This is where the bigger fish move to in the summer to the deeper water where it is cooler. This where we also are catching Flounder at in August is out around the jetties and in the ocean on the artificial reefs and civil war wrecks. This is done when the ocean allow us to get out there.
