We are just about two weeks into June, and the fishing is fine. From the Seacoast Anglers Association’s fish report:
All the recreational fisheries are now open except for Striped Bass which is closed from June 1 to September 30.
The Jim Caudle Reef out of Little River Inlet has consistently produced an active day of fishing. It is a great reef and has been enhanced by funds from the Jim Caudle Reef Foundation headed by Ron McManus of North Myrtle Beach. This reef provides a perfect place to take the kids because they will catch something. Close to shore (3-miles), it is a safe place to go to for most any kind of boat large or small. I believe the statistics show it is the largest and most used reel on the coast of South Carolina.
Between the recent raindrops, anglers have been catching everything from Flounder to small King Mackerel. Seabass, Sheepshead, and Croaker are there in large numbers along with Spanish Mackerel and Atlantic Bonito. I have a report of a Cobia hookup over the reef and several Weakfish as well. If you get the chance, motor out there and enjoy the day.
The report has a lot of detail about what’s biting and what’s not, so be sure to glance through it before you head out to the water. Cherry Grove Pier and other fishing hotspots are close to most of our vacation homes and condos, so you won’t have to venture far to enjoy some quality fishing time.
