Inshore: Captain Smiley Fishing Charters (843-361-7445) reports that March is typically a strong month on the north end of the Grand Strand, and they have every reason to expect that the black drum fishing will continue to be excellent. They will eat cut or dead shrimp fished around structure. Redfish should also still be schooled up on the flats where they can be caught at low tide on shrimp, and at higher stages of the tide they will be found around structure. Trout fishing should turn on at the jetties as well as inshore, and fish will be caught on both live shrimp and artificial baits like Vudu Shrimp. In late February they were already feeding a little better as water clarity improved. Finally, at the end of February flounder started to return to the Cherry Grove area and that should begin full-scale in the whole region later this month.

Nearshore: Captain Smiley Fishing Charters reports that in March sheepshead will still be stacked up at the nearshore reefs, and black sea bass should still be relatively close to the coast.
