After a long and very hot July, water temperatures have peaked and fishing has become more consistant. Due to the hot weather, we shifted our focus from the shallow water spots(with the exception redfishing on the flood tides) to the deeper areas with more current flow and cooler water temps. Lots of shrimp are in the bay and the trout bite has been exceptional. Plenty of tarpon around at the moment and they can be found in the ocean around the Winyah Bay jetties, all the way up the Waccamaw River following baitfish. Lots and lots of mullet, menhaden and other baitfish around to satisfy their big appetites, which also makes it a challenge to catch them with so much competition around. I always have the best luck when I find a few tarpon in areas with less bait, rather than lots of tarpon with a lot of baitfish around. Flounder bite has been very consistent all summer long, as well as redfish and sheepshead in and around Winyah Bay, Georgetown South Carolina
I’m currently booking up the best tides for tarpon fishing which will be prime for the next 6 weeks. Feel free to contact me if you would like the chance to catch a fish of a lifetime!
