The Bull Redfish run at the Little River Inlet has slowed some, but it may be due to the arrival of large Bull Sharks at the Inlet that are eating the Redfish before we can get them to the boat. There are smaller Redfish moving around in the salt marshes along with Flounder and Speckled Trout feeding on finger mullet and shrimp. I currently do not have any availability left for July and August is starting to book up, so if you have been thinking about reserving an Inshore Fishing Charter with me in August, you should contact me soon after you have made your reservation for your vacation accommodations in order to obtain your preferred date to Go Fish.

We have been having a good run of Bull Redfish at the Little River Inlet the past couple of weeks. Those Big Reds don't usually start showing up until the end of August into early September, but there have been large schools of Menhaden bait fish coming into the Inlet being followed by the Big Reds, Sharks and Dolphins and everything else that feeds on them. We have also been catching some smaller Redfish, Black Drum and Flounder in the backwater marshes and along the Intracoastal Waterway. Schools of Mullet are also showing up in the Inshore waters and should lead to more backwater action. Contact me if you want to Go Fish Inshore for Redfish, Flounder, Black Drum and Speckled Trout.

The fishing has been decent most days since my last report, except for the week before last when we had rain, thunderstorms and higher than usual winds that made the waters cloudy; both inshore and offshore. The past few days the water has greatly improved and so has the bite. Redfish have been biting again at the Little River Inlet, but it seems that a Bull Shark or two are still hanging around as yesterday we had what looked like a 27 inch Redfish being reeled in by 13 year old Thomas; only to be reduced to about 8 inches in a matter of seconds only a few feet from the boat. We have also been catching smaller Sharks and Bluefish around the mouth of the Inlet along with Redfish, Black Drum and Flounder along the Intracoastal Waterway and in the salt marshes. There has been an increase in the quantity and schools of Mullet minnows in our area which usually happens this time of year resulting in a better bite. Contact me if you would like to Go Fish in North Myrtle Beach.

We have gotten a little warmer in April, although if you live in the Northern states, you're probably having that "Never Ending Winter" feeling. As I write this, Green Bay Wisconsin is having blizzard like conditions with record levels of snowfall for this time of year and we're having gale force winds here. I was grateful for the opportunity to take the very nice Krause family of 5 from Wisconsin fishing this past Saturday and was able to help them catch some decent sized Drum during their first saltwater fishing experience; even the youngest, 6 year old Natalie was able to set the hook and fight a good sized Drum on her own for a little while until she got tired and then asked her big brother, 9 year old Alex for help; who then was then able to bring the fish close enough to the boat to where I could get it into the landing net. I believe that I was able to help them make some pleasant memories that will last a lifetime. The weather is warming up and the fish bite is getting better also. If you would like to make some pleasant fishing memories that will last a lifetime; please contact me and I will endeavor to assist you and your family or friends in achieving that goal.

I'll start by saying that I think March and February got their dates mixed up! March was so much colder and felt more like Winter than February did. That being said, the fishing conditions were tougher than anticipated for March with the lower temperatures, higher winds and cold, rainy days resulting in lower than usual water temperatures that slowed the bite considerably. However this past week we have observed climbing air temperatures along with a slow, but slight rise in water temperature resulting in a better bite. Our primary action is coming from Redfish and Black Drum. Someone told me yesterday that they had caught some short, "throw-back" Flounder; that's a good sign that some larger ones may be showing up soon. I still have a few slots open for next week and the weather forecast looks great, so if you're here for Spring Break and want to go after some Redfish or Black Drum, give me a call and let's Go Fish.
I wish everyone a Blessed Easter.

The weather this week has been great....for February. The water temperature is hovering around 67. Me and my son, Tyler decided to go and look for some fish yesterday and we did find a few nice ones in the couple of hours that we were out there. The Redfish and Black Drum are becoming more active with the warmer temperatures and according to the weather forecast for the foreseeable future, it looks like we will continue to experience great weather with temperatures in the 60's and 70's. If this weather pattern holds, the fish bite should only get better. So if you have been waiting for things to warm up in order to enjoy some fishing, contact me and let's Go Fish for some Reds and Black Drum.

A lot has happened since my last report; the weather has certainly gotten warmer along with the water temperatures. The Black Drum bite continues to provide the most action with mostly larger than average fish for our area being caught. The Redfish continue to be scattered in smaller numbers, however we usually see increased numbers of Reds and bigger schools in the marshes during June. The Flounder bite has improved as it usually does this time of year as more schools of juvenile Mullet are moving around the backwater areas. As the fishing gets better and more fishing families are planning their summer vacations to our area, reservations for my Inshore Fishing Charters have increased. So if you are thinking about taking an Inshore Fishing Trip during June, July or August and you know which dates that you will be visiting the Myrtle Beach area; you need to contact me at your earliest convenience to make sure that you get the best date that will work with your planned vacation schedule as I offer reservations on a first come - first serve basis. I look forward to the opportunity to Go Fish with you and your family this Summer.
