Fishing has been a popular pastime for men and women for hundreds of years. Sure, you might have a favorite fishing hole back home, but that doesn’t mean you should leave your fishing gear at home when you come to the Grand Strand for vacation! Instead, we’ll help you find a great fishing hole-away-from-home while you’re on vacation!
If you have your fishing license, you can simply find a comfortable spot on the beach, and setup your gear right there! It’s simple and easy and requires little setup or financial investment (as long as you have your own equipment). Off the coast, you’re most likely to catch whiting or black sea bass.
There are many captains and cruises available for you to charter if you want to spend a day with out on the ocean fishing. You can stay close to the coast or go deep sea fishing for a chance to catch things like tuna, grouper, or triggerfish!
Many piers in the Myrtle Beach area will allow you fish off the side. The Springmaid Pier on Ocean Blvd actually holds the state record for Spanish mackerel! You’re also likely to catch sheepshead or spadefish off a pier.
There are numerous rivers (like the Waccamaw and the Black Rivers) in and around the Myrtle Beach area that are easily accessible for fishing purposes. In Freshwater, you’re most likely to catch catfish or crappie.
