Some Top Targets for Winter Fishing

For those in Pawleys Island, redfish are a prime target during winter. These fish tend to school up on shallow water flats and can often be basking in the sun on east-facing banks. However, when water temperatures drop sharply, they will move to deeper pockets of water in search of a comfortable temperature zone. When you find a school of redfish, it is best to fish the edges – this will almost always entice the bite and will provide some great fishing action for the next little while. So don’t let the cold weather deter you from getting out on the water – plenty of fish to be caught this time of year.

As any experienced fisherman knows, different fish species have different behavior patterns. Some fish are more active here in the winter, while others migrate. We’re lucky to have several active wintertime species here in Pawleys Island, including speckled seatrout. Though other areas might see a slowdown in fishing activity during the winter, around here, the trout bite is as strong as ever. So if you’re looking to get out on the water and do some fishing this winter, Pawleys Island is the place to be. You might also come across some juvenile flounder during your fishing trips. But keep in mind that the adult flounder migrated out for the winter months. You will have a productive and enjoyable winter fishing season here at Pawleys Island.
