I will second IBW. if you see rust behind the mud flap there is probably more in behind. I’d pull the fender liners and look at the seam between the fender and body. Clean out the salty wet mud. Shooting a pressure nozzle in along the top of the rocker panel with the door open is supposed to keep it clean behind the liner - if done often enough.
