Saltwater report: Fish are biting

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Water temperatures are beginning to rise, and experts say the fish are starting to bite.

According to, there are plenty of fish in the area.

In Little River, Cherry Grove Pier reports small whiting, croaker, silver perch with some small flounder and black drum thrown in the mix. It's been steady like this for several weeks.

On the Grand Strand, Perry's Bait and Tackle in Murrells Inlet says your best bet is flounder in the creeks and deep water holes. The red drum aren't running, but the whiting is near the beach.

Heading south? The Charleston Angler reports that chunks of blue crab and cut mullet on circle hooks are bringing the redfish out of the grass.

Down around the Beaufort-Hilton Head Island areas, Hunting Island State Park reports some stingrays and whiting caught on the pier.
