From Deep-Sea Fishing To Pier Fishing To Beach Fishing, The Myrtle Beach Area Has A Number Of Great Places To Catch Dinner Or Just Head Out For A Relaxing Day On The Seas.
When people talk about Myrtle Beach fishing, they’re usually referring to saltwater fishing. After all, we have immediate access to the Atlantic Ocean, along with numerous creeks and channels that feed into the ocean – all saltwater. For those accustomed to freshwater fishing, here are a few pointers: you generally use a different type of bait and tackle; the majority of in-shore fishing is done on the ocean floor, so you need a pyramid-shaped weight or sinker, to keep your rig on the bottom; and, you should rinse your reel with fresh water after each use to purge the saltwater. If you don’t have your own rod and reel, you can purchase or rent one at local bait and tackle shops, piers, or sporting goods stores. Myrtle Beach deep sea fishing is a true adventure, and catching those big, large fish in the deep water certainly offers a thrilling experience.
Freshwater And Inland Fishing
In addition to the mighty Atlantic Ocean, the Myrtle Beach area is blessed with wonderful inland waters. These include the Intracoastal Waterway, which runs parallel to the coast from Little River to Socastee, where it merges with the Waccamaw River. Along the way, other rivers and tributaries feed into the waterway, and passage to the ocean is gained through Little River or Winyah Bay.
