Holden Beach Fishing Forecast:

Get ready anglers of Holden Beach for one of the most exciting months of fishing we have. The month of May is full of action-packed fishing from the backwater to the AR's and Gulf Stream. This month generally brings beautiful weather, which means opportunity for many fishing trips.
The great thing about May is the variety of species to target. In the backwaters, we will be catching large numbers of Reds, Trout and Flounder. The water temperature will hit that magic number of 75 degrees making the fish very active and eager to eat both live bait and artificials. Trout and reds will be moving out of the creeks to more open water. Any structure like docks, bridges, marsh point or shoreline with moving water will be holding fish so don't be afraid to try some new spots. Also look for troughs and slight drop offs near the oyster beds or grass flats.
For catching reds mud minnows fished either on Carolina rigs with small (1-ounce or less) egg sinkers or impaled on jig heads and worked through the strike zone are good baits. Scented soft baits like Gulp lures worked slowly off the bottom. Don't fish your lure too quickly. Cast it toward structure or even under it and work the lure slowly. Times when the tide is moving well will be the best for redfish near pilings, while very low tide will find them feeding in the back of the grass flats where it is hard to reach them. Soft-bait crab imitation lures work well on low tide when retrieved very slowly or not at all.
Mud minnows are the beat bait but flounder will hit the scented soft baits as well if they are hopped very slowly right at the bottom. If you can find finger mullet or small pinfish these are great flounder baits right now for the bigger door mat flounder.
Trout will hit the soft baited lures like Gulp baits with 1/8oz to 1/4oz jig heads. If you can find them schooled up off of a points, docks or bridge. The morning seem to be the best bite for Trout.
The spainsh mackerel and blue fish bite will start to heat up just off the beach and around the AR's. If you find a school of them you can cast Gotcha-style pencil plugs .This is a fun way to fish for them. The best colors for the Gotcha plugs changes daily although red heads and white or gold bodies are hard to beat most days. For trolling for spanish and blue fish use 0 or 00 clark spoons with 25 foot leader of 20lbs mono on number 1 or 2 planer troll at 7 knots.
The nearshore wrecks and ledges should holding cobia on them. King mackerel will be showing up in the 75 feet of water areas.
In the Gulf Stream, we are going to see pandemonium. As the water continues to warm up we will start seeing the big migration of pelagics happen. Acres of baitfish will lure the pelagics up our coast and we will be there with a warm welcome. We will see large packs of wahoo hanging around structure on the bottom. The mahi will be school up around the Sargassum. The Blackfin Tuna will running the rip and hang around the temp. bearks.
If you would like to book a Backwater or Gulf Stream trip, there are still some days available. Don't miss out on this experience of a lifetime.
