Myrtle Beach, SC in January

I have an opportunity to be in the above city in the middle of January. Should I extend my trip a couple of days? I was looking at the barrier structures on google maps. Looks sweet!

If it's worth the effort, what species, size, etc. should I expect? Winter an be tough, I know....

Thanks, Tom

I've not fished there but I think you will be in Redfish country. Further up the coast in NC the striper fishery goes gangbusters around new years. A google search for some local sites/guide services should yield some more specific info.

I would never go to a coastal location without packing a 9wt and a few flies

Tom -

Good to hear from ya! How are your two-handed exploits going?

I would recommend contacting capt_gordon (an active member for years) who is a charter captain in the area and a knowledgeable and generous guy to know. I am sure you can tell you what's in the area at what times of year and tells it like it is.

Sorry I haven't visited here in a little while. Redfish. Redfish and maybe specks. January is tough due to fronts and such but if you can get a weather window the fish will bite. I was in Charleston the past few days (which see my post). Lots of fish down there. You may want to spend a day in the Georgetown area or even make the drive to Charleston if you get the time. Myrtle doesn't have the fishing infrastructure and just not enough water there really. As you go further south there is a lot. The best saltwater fly guide in the Southeast lives in Charleston and his name is Capt Richard Stuhr. If you can get down there I recommend hooking up with him and the fishing is awesome. A little closer to Myrtle is Georgetown and the guy there is Capt Gene Dickson (he's not really a fly guide but a great guide and angler all around). Make sure you tell these guys that I sent you. Go ahead and email them and see what is up. Good luck and let me know how it goes.
