So if you’re looking to get in on some late summer fishing action, this is the place to be.

Fishing for Tarpon

Tarpon fishing is still in full swing, with ample opportunity to catch “silver kings” in the shallows. Anglers can find schools of tarpon in the nooks and crannies of backcountry waters along the coast.

Tarpon inundate the area in search of pre-migration food, looking to store up energy in advance of their mass movement. They also seek shelter and refuge from predators in the shallow water havens of inshore waters. As a result, the Pawley’s Island ecosystem is an ideal spot for anglers in search of tarpon activity.


If you’re an adrenaline junky, get your fix by heading to the Pawley’s Island area for a day of late summer shark fishing, an experience loaded with adventure and excitement. This is the time of year when various species of sharks are most active in coastal estuaries. Some of the most common types of sharks in the area include:

  • Spinner sharks
  • Bull Sharks

  • Bonnet Head Sharks
  • And more!
