About Pawleys Island
Pawleys Island is a 4 mile long barrier island that overlooks Pawleys Creek to the West and and the Atlantic Ocean to the East. Fishing in Pawleys creek can be very productive for flounder, trout, and redfish, however it is a very shallow creek so many folks choose to fish from a kayak, john boat, or from land which makes it an ideal location for a family fishing outing. The public can access fishing areas on the North and South end of Pawleys Island where parking is available.
Located just a few miles south of Pawleys Island is the North Inlet Preserve, a unique ecosystem that makes up a portion of Winyah Bay. Redfish, Speckled Trout, Tarpon, and Flounder are the primary target in North Inlet. Fishing North Inlet is back country style fishing at its finest!
Surf fishing from Pawley Island can be very productive particularly around the inlets in the Fall. Surfishing is best starting in late August through November and anglers can expect to catch bull redfish, flounder, trout, bluefish and sharks.
