The most popular way to fish for Flounder in the Pawleys Island
Creek is to from a small boat. Some rentals are available, if you don’t
have your own to bring to the Island with you.
As far as bait and tackle, you will need some mud minnows and
double-hooked “flounder rigs”, both of which can easily be found in most
tackle shops in the area. After you’ve found a good spot in the creek,
lip hook your mud minnows on the flounder rig, and start trolling
slowly. You want your minnows dragging nice and slowly across the
bottom. When you feel the fish bite, let him have it for a few seconds
so he can get it firmly in his mouth before you start to reel in. When
focusing on flounder, I prefer to be fishing right at the first of a
rising tide. Fall is the best season to target these oh-so-tasty

Fishing for Reds In Pawleys Creek
Low tide is a good time to 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 live or dead and
Mud Minnows will work too.
As the tide rises you can float corks with live bait along the
grass edges look for eddy’s and back flow in the current and fish those.
