Reel in Good Times When You Go Fishing in Myrtle Beach

Fishing in Myrtle Beach, SC is as typical for a North Myrtle Beach vacation as apple pie is for Americana. The waters surrounding the Myrtle Beach, SC area are diverse and the catch couldn’t be better.

Where to Fish in Myrtle Beach

Myrtle Beach fishing includes freshwater, saltwater, deep water and shallow water. There are rivers, creeks, bays, inlets and of course, the Atlantic Ocean. Myrtle Beach fishing might include head boats, jon boats, pontoon boats, charter boats and boat rentals. Go fishing inshore and go fishing offshore. Fly fish on the water’s surface during your North Myrtle Beach vacation or try bottom fishing for the big guys that live deep down. In the North Myrtle Beach and Myrtle Beach area you can fish from a pier, from shore and from a bank. The area features artificial reefs, piers, boat ramps and the Intracoastal Waterway. Wade into the water and go fishing or perch yourself on a fallen log. Whatever your fishing desire, it can likely happen during your North Myrtle Beach vacation.

With all of these options and all of this water in the North Myrtle Beach, SC area it is no wonder that Myrtle Beach has some of the best fishing. All you need to do before you go fishing is decide what kind of fishing you most enjoy. Do you have your own fishing equipment or will you need to rent rod and reels?

In the Gulf Stream you can land a vermillion snapper and giant sea bass. And nighttime fishing might yield black tip sharks and tiger sharks.
