Inshore: Captain Smiley Fishing Charters (843-361-7445) reports that patterns should hold fairly steady in the month of July, although the grade of fish size often goes down a little this month.  By this point mullet are a consistent bait source for flounder, trout, redfish and more, and pretty much everything should also eat shrimp which will remain prolific in the area.  However, black drum – which have been so reliable this year – may drop off somewhat this month.  Look for fish to hold a little deeper in the July heat and to feed better early and late.  The ledges in the Intracoastal Waterway and the rocks at the Little River jetties should be good all month.  Finally, shark fishing should provide plenty of excitement. 

Nearshore: Captain Smiley Fishing Charters (843-361-7445) reports the Spanish mackerel fishing had slowed by late June, but there could be another run of fish and the action could pick up in July.
