It has been a hot summer!! We have been catching good quantities of Flounder and Speckled Trout most days with a few Redfish mixed in. The fall Redfish run should start within the next few weeks, but most of these fish will be big breeders coming in from the deep ocean to spawn at the mouth of the Little River Inlet for a couple of months. The spawning Reds are by law, mostly too big to keep but are great fun on light tackle. The Speckled Trout and Flounder bite should also improve as we move into September and temperatures start to cool down a little. Contact me and let's Go Fish!

It's been a while since my last report, but the fishing has finally gotten to the point where it is worthwhile reporting. We have been catching Redfish at the Little River Inlet and in areas along the Intracoastal Waterway, Black Drum have been biting in those areas as well. Speckled Trout and Flounder have been biting in the salt marshes but are mostly just short of the legal length. The water temperatures are warming up nicely and the bite should improve as the water gets even warmer. I am looking forward to some good fishing in the upcoming months, contact me if you would like to Go Fish.
Have a Happy Easter!!

The past month we have had some great action most days with mainly Flounder, Trout and to a lesser extent; Redfish, Black Drum and Spanish Mackerel. However that has changed in the past week with the arrival of the "Bull " Reds for their annual spawning run in addition to good numbers of Black Drum. The Speckled Trout numbers have decreased somewhat from August when we had quite a few days of catching double digit numbers of Trout in the 4lb to 5lb range. As we get closer to the end of September, it will start to cool down in our area and October is one of my favorite times to Go Fish.
Well we have come to the end of another great year of Inshore Fishing; since my last report we have had some great fishing right up till Thanksgiving and it has slowed a bit since then, but there are still some days when we are able to put more than a dozen fish (Speckled Trout, Redfish, Black Drum) in the Go Fish with a little less frequency than in October. The warmer than average temperatures are keeping the fish active and if the weather predictions hold true for a warmer than usual Winter, our fishing should be better than usual for the Winter. I would like to thank every one that went fishing with me during 2016 and look forward to fishing with you all again in 2017. I wish everyone a Happy New Year and a prosperous 2017.Capt. Chris
North Myrtle Beach Fishing Report 2016
May 10, 2016
We are starting to see schools of mullet moving along the Intracoastal Waterway in addition to schools of menhaden moving along the beach; the big Redfish like to feed on those menhaden schools. Sharks and Blue Fish also follow the menhaden schools. The Flounder bite is getting better in the marsh also along with some smaller "slot sized " Redfish. I do not have any availability until May 17th and June is starting to book up as well. If you know your dates for when you will be staying in the Myrtle Beach or North Myrtle Beach area and you want to book a Go Fish Inshore Charter; then you should contact me a.s.a.p. to get the specific date and time that you prefer.

During the last week of October we had some great action with the Bull Redfish and Black Drum with a few Speckled Trout and Flounder mixed in. Although we have not had any rain since the hurricane, there is still a large amount of fresh water coming out of the Intracoastal Waterway, through the salt marshes and out to the inlet. I believe that as that as that fresh water subsides, the salinity levels will rise and we should see a lot more Trout in our area. The weather continues to look great for the foreseeable future; now is the time to Go Fish before the strong cold fronts start to come through.

Hurricane Matthew has come and gone leaving destruction and unfortunately some deaths across the Carolinas. Me and my family were very blessed not to have any property losses or injuries, but it hit close to home as my next door neighbors had a 70 foot pine tree smash through their roof as did some others in my neighborhood. The good news is that the fishing has not been adversely affected, if anything it has gotten better. We are still catching Bull Redfish around the Little River Inlet in addition to Black Drum and smaller Redfish in the marshes. Yesterday I heard a report that a few fishermen had done well with Speckled Trout in areas where they usually show up during the late fall so I will be adding them to my list of targets for tomorrow. The Fall bite is on! Time to Go Fish!

The bite has really picked up in the last 2 weeks as we have seen larger and more schools of bait fish moving into the area. The remnants of Tropical Storm Colin are affecting us today so it gives me a chance to update my fishing report. We are getting more keeper sized Flounder and "bull" Redfish that normally show up in the fall at the Little River Inlet have been biting at the Inlet the past few days. The bite is on! Time to Go Fish again tomorrow!

The fishing has been like the weather and the temperatures, up and down. We have been catching the 4 primary species found in the inshore waters: Redfish, Black Drum, Flounder and Speckled Trout; but most of them are small, less than the minimum legal size. This morning we had temperatures just above freezing; the fish may be confused and not sure if winter is coming or going. The weather forecast for the next couple of weeks is showing temperatures climbing into the mid 70's by next weekend. I hope that they stay there and we are finished with the 30's till December! As soon as the water temperature reaches 70F, the fishing should be really good, and a great time to Go Fish.
