Pawley’s Island Fishing Map & Best Spots

Fishing Report

Below is the Pawleys Island fishing report as of today:

How is the fishing at Pawleys Island?

Fishing right now is really good! The cold water winter bite is still strong. This week has been a warmer one, which has stirred up the fish and made the bite a little more active. This month we have some really solid moon phases and great opportunities for low tide fishing right around daybreak and sunset.

I’ve been eating good this month! I’ve caught lots of redfish, black drum, and went gigging successfully for flounder a week ago.

The usual shrimp, mullet, and popular artificial baits moved slow have been successful this month.

What’s biting at Pawleys Island?

The following fish are biting right now: Red Drum, Speckled Sea Trout, Flounder, and Black Drum

What’s the best bait to use in Pawleys Island?

Shrimp, Mullet, Menhaden, Artificial Shrimp Lures, and Paddletails on jig heads or Texas eye jig heads.

What’s the best time to fish in Pawleys Island?

The best time to fish in the creeks is at low tide. My most productive low tide fishing comes just as the tide begins to come back in and rolls over a lot of the oyster beds.

I also have a lot of success fishing falling tides near the inlet. If you can sync low tide or a falling tide up with sunrise or sunset, the bite will typically be strong.

What are the best fishing spots in Pawleys Island?

Creek Mouths, Structure, and Inlets. See my video below for details on exact spots I like to fish in Pawleys.
