Myrtle Beach Fishing or Murrells Inlet Fishing? Don't freak out! They are basically one
and the same. If you are looking to fish off
a pier or off the shore there is good fishing in
Myrtle Beach. If you are wanting to take a boat in
the inlets or offshore you must go to Murrells
Inlet or Little River.
Murrells Inlet is a fisherman's
paradise. Miles and miles of inlets, creeks and
jetties make for an excellent chance to catch a
number of different fish. If you bring your own
boat, the public dock is located in the heart of
the inlet. It is only a five minute ride to the
ocean or you will be fishing in the creek
immediately. There is ample parking for your car
and trailer across the street. There is a gas pump
located at Captain Dicks adjacent to the landing.
The Best time to fish in Murrells
Inlet is two hours before and after High tide. I
recommend this for a number of reasons. Fish tend
to be more active at these times and if you are
not familiar with the inlet you have a better
chance of not getting grounded in low water.
There are a number of fish species
that you can fish for. If you are new to inlet
fishing I suggest you use a simple Carolina rig.
It will work well for flounder and Spot tail Bass
but will also work nicely for trout and drum.
If you can throw a cast net, bait of choice would
be finger mullet or shrimp. If you want to buy
your bait you can stop at Inlet Convenience
Fishing and get mud minnows or live shrimp. Fish
the banks and the mouths of the creeks. The north
side of the North Jetty is an excellent place to
fish for Sport Tail Bass.
