After a lackluster February due to cold temps, ice storms, and rain, things are starting to pick back up in the creeks around Winyah Bay and Cape Romain. Redfish can still be found in big schools along the inter-coastal waterway using artificial baits and biting best on the low end of the tide. Closer to Georgetown, Winyah Bay has started to settle down from all the rain we’ve had and big numbers of redfish can be found in the bays and holding close to structure. Although live bait seems to be the ticket right now, we are still catching a few fish on artificial spin tackle and fly fishing. A few flounder are starting to show up although many are on the small side. Another week or so and the flounder fishing should continue to improve. Trout are also being caught with the size being above average in the 2-3lb range. Most of the trout are keying in on mirro-lures and baitfish imitation grubs. Look for the creeks around Pawleys Island and Murrells Inlet to start picking up as the water warms and baitfish begin to fill the creeks.
