  • Grand Strand Fishing Report

    The spot run is starting to wane on the Grand Strand, but the drum and trout fishing is starting to pick up.

    The spots have all but left Murrells Inlet, but they are still catching some spots at Cherry Grove Beach in the surf and off the pier. Bloodworms are the primary bait for spots; followed by live or fresh mullet.

    Now that the sports are about finished, fishermen are starting to look for reds in the creeks or out in the bay. Try fishing for the reds with live finger mullet or small menhaden on Carolina rigs or 1/4 ounce jigs heads. Also be on the lookout for reds 'tailing' while chasing baitfish in the low water flats.

    The speckled trout are also starting to come into the Grand Strand area. The trout are hitting live shrimp on popping corks, and the best times are a couple of hours before and after the low tide.

    There have also been reports of a a few blues, pompano, Spanish, and the occasional shark being caught, but with the weather and fish in transition, you will have to get out there and hunt them.
