Going on a golf trip this month to Myrtle Beach, SC and staying in Murrells Inlet area. It is a golf trip for about a dozen guys driving down from from the South Jersey area. A couple of us want to do some fishing after golf rather than hanging out at the hotel pool/bar. We backbay/inshore fish here at home and plan to bring down our rods and tackle. Offshore might be hard since we will be playing golf every morning and only have limited time to fish afterward. It looks like inshore or surf fishing could be the ticket.

I'm looking for any info that any golfing Barners have who have done the same thing may have. Like what's biting in late March? What tackle to bring? Best areas to fish? Small boat rentals,etc, etc?

I think the weather down there should be pretty nice then and that it would be fun to wet a line. What do you think?

Thanks in advance for any help.:thumbsup:

You will want to look in the Little River Inlet area just north of Myrtle Beach. Murrels inlet is a nice area, but it doesn't connect with the ICW so inshore fishing this time of year might be limited. there are tons of guides in the Little river area.

You might go on the http://www.ncwaterman.com/forum/forum_topics.asp?FID=3 board and ask. Things are starting to lite up down there. Might be a better idea to bail on the golf for a day and fish.

Inshore Redfishing is good and there are some Spotted Trout around. The fishing is better down in Winyah Bay than Little River and MI right now. That's out of Georgetown where I live, easy drive from MI. How many guys would want to go? That would determine which guide to recommend. The best fishing right now is in real skinny water that you need a flats boat for. The flats boat only hold 2 anglers. Go to this site and ask around and you'll learn all you need.

Copied from another forum. The followup author said the fine was $500 and recommended not landing any shark in Horry County...He was from the area.

I live about an hour north of Myrtle beach. The inshore action usually starts in early April, but this winter has been so cold, most of the locals think the fish will be a few weeks late.

Either way its worth a shot.

If you want to use a guide, let me know and I'll direct you to a GOOD one. It depends how many people you want to go with you who I would recommend. :thumbsup:

If it's you and one other person, I have the guy who will put you on Redfish in skinny water. He runs a Hewes. He will also accomodate you if you want to catch one on a fly. You won't need any tackle.

Can he help them out if they want to do some crocagater hunting too? :D

I'll be down at the Power Plant in April some time we'll have to get a few drinks in town.
