There are eight in Grand Strand and that includes four in Myrtle Beach. These include Myrtle Beach State Park Pier, Springmaid Pier, Second Avenue Pier and 14TH Avenue Pier.
Intracoastal waterway is a man made river that meanders through some shady and scenic spots that are excellent for a fishing trip this summer. The river runs from the Carolina border located in Little River down to Winyah Bay in Georgetown. Intracoastal Waterway is among the few spots where fishermen can catch both saltwater saltwater and freshwater fish, which is a rare treat for anglers. Although the north and the south ends of the waterway are filled with seagoing boats, the stretch from the Waccamaw Neck to Socastee Swing Bridge is lined with adjoining rivers as well as tidal creeks where you could find some great and seclusion fishing. Waterway excursions are offered by many outfitters or you could also find some public ramps and boat docks for casting from the shore. You will also find bait shops in most marinas where you can get your license as well as your other needs when you go on a fishing trip.
Surf fishing is a popular beach activity. It is great for fishing but not for catching mainly because of the need to find a more secluded area without simmers since fishing near crowds could be risky. Even though the city permits surf fishing, it’s not allowed to fish in places where there are swimmers. Depending on the time of day and the weather, you may find a few beach goer down time to wet the line and catch at least one fish. However, the best option is to go on a fishing trip to a location that’s remote.
