Myrtle Beach Fishing Piers 

North Myrtle Beach is home to the Cherry Grove Fishing Pier. In 1964, a fisherman caught a 1,780-pound, world record tiger shark. To this day, the shark remains to be the only all-tackle world record ever found in South Carolina. Can you beat the world record? Test your fishing ability by renting a fishing rod from the nearby Tackle and Gift Shop. The shop also sells bait and tackle for certain fish. Another popular fishing spot is the East Coast’s longest wooden pier! Apache Pier is not only visited by fishermen. The dock offers beautiful views and live entertainment at the pier’s covered center stage.  

Fishing Tips and Tricks

Successful fishing requires durable equipment and knowledge of North Myrtle Beach’s fishing restrictions. Below is a shortened list of tips and tricks to catch more fish!

  1. Fish activity increases during sunrise and sunset, making them the best times to fish.
  2. Use fresh bait such as shrimp or sand fleas. 
  3. Change your monofilament line frequently, so it doesn’t snap when reeling in your record-breaking fish!
  4. Avoid loud conversations and music. Sound carries great distances and can scare the fish.
  5. Guests don’t need a fishing license to fish at Cherry Grove Fishing Pier.
