Did the Myrtle Beach State Park ( MBSP ) today. Lots of small whiting on fishbites, two poor man's tarpon ( LadyFish) about 20 in long on finger mullet. Only took one pic of the ladyfish. I don't eat ladyfish so, back they went. They make great cut bait for redfish. Lots of Ribbon fish off the end of the pier.

Did the MBSP this Wednesday, used live finger mullet and fishbites. Got one Ladyfish 20 in" long, one small Bluefish 10 in" long, and a few small Whiting 7 - 10 in" long. One fisherman got a very large Ray. Bring your net the finger mullet run is in full swing. Watch out for the rookies throwing nets, had one boy throw right on top of my lines two times. The first time I said nothing, the 2nd time I put him in his place, but good. He stayed away from me after that. Don't know why people have to be like that, even if they are rookies.

Spent the day on the MBSP pier, just a few very small Whiting and Pompano on fishbites and a fireball rig. Lots of Sharks in the area. Other fisherman said they have fished most of the piers in the area and have not done much better. Water looks a lot better than it has in the last few months. Lots of people on the pier, things should get better after Sept 4th. Might try Murrells Inlet in my small skiff Monday, report will follow if I do.

Great day at the MBSP. Spots everywhere, I used fishbites bag o worms maybe 25 fish in about 3 hours. One 12.5" flounder he went back, got him on a fishfinder rig and a live finger mullet. Lots of Pompano in the surf on fishbites landed 8 just over hand size. Fished the outgoing tide. Pier had a lot of folks fishing for spots most seem to do well on frozen shrimp some used bloodworms. Water was still very murky, 2.5 foot seas, winds were 15 to 20 mph out of the ne and east in the afternoon.

Anyone fishing the surf? Give a man a fish he eats for a day, teach a man to fish he eats for a lifetime.... Good luck to all you fishing folks....

Three, 2 ft sharks on finger mullets, 10 to 15 blues lost count 12 to 15 inches long ,on finger mullet, one small black drum on fishbites. Fishing the suds. Some folks on the pier had a few smaller spots and very small whiting. All in all not a bad day. Will the water ever get clear? Some mullet still running the surf in small groups. May put the micro skiff in murrells inlet tomorrow, if I do report will follow. Good luck to all you folks....

Fished murrells inlet in the back waters, ( creeks ) from sun up to about 1230, no joy. Mostly pinfish, on fishbites. One good hit on a flounder rig with live finger mullet, missed it. Made my way back to the MBSP pier fished for 4 hours, 6 blues 9 to 14 inches on live finger mullet, no spots, very small whiting on fishbites, shrimp. Some folks had a few good black drums 16 to 17 inches, on shrimp. No sharks today ( I don't care for sharks), Some folks like the pull but I can live without it. I would love to see a good cold NE wind for about a week.

Good luck to all you folks...

Winds from the east fish bite the least, winds from the west fish bite the best, I said NE winds / we need a NW winds. It's hell to get old....

Good luck to all you surf/pier pounding fishing folks...

Six small spots on fishbites ( bag o worms). Some folks had some good whitings, One man had two nice size flounders 17 -18" on live mullet.
