Murrells Inlet offers great fishing in the inlet area itself. On the freshwater side, the Wacca Wache marina sits on on the Waccamaw River. The Waccamaw River is one of the most scenic stretches of the Intracoastal Waterway.
While the tide is out in Pawleys, fish for reds in the creek around oyster beds, in deep holes, and around docks or any other structure that you may find using cut mullet, finger mullet, shrimp, and mud minnows.
As the tide starts coming in drop a flounder rig and troll the creek. When you feel the flounder bite, give them a few seconds before setting the hook and reeling them in.
When the tide is higher, float corks with live bait along the grass edges of the creeks. Look for eddies and back flow in the currents--that's where you want to drop a line.

Cape Romain and Bulls Bay are tarpon hot spots. This unspoiled, undeveloped stretch of coastline is easy to access from McClellanville, Buck Hall Landing, or Georgetown. Tarpon begin showing up around Cape Romain in late May and will stay until October. Tarpon can be caught along the beaches, inlets, and sandbars using heavy tackle with live or artificial baits.
