Fall Fishing in Myrtle Beach this Year
Enjoy some endless family-friendly fun when you come visit Myrtle Beach. From swimming to golf, you will find countless ways to enjoy your fall vacation. One of the most popular activities around here happens to be fishing. And of course, while staying in one of our Myrtle Beach vacation rentals, you will be close to 3 different fishing piers. We know that some of the most relaxing fishing can be done on one of the local piers. Below are our picks for the Myrtle Beach fishing piers.
Cherry Grove Pier
Cherry Grove Pier is a wonderful pier to start fishing at if you have never done so before. Many visitors come to the quaint town of Cherry Grove, SC and was built in the 1950’s. This pier has been family owned since 1965 and many have considered this as an iconic landmark. If you are coming to try out fishing but don’t have any fishing gear, have no fear. Cherry Grove Pier will allow you to rent fishing rods and you can get your fishing license here too. It costs $24 all day to rent a rod with a $30 deposit on it. It will cost you $16 for after 3 pm. And if you don’t feel the need to fish, you can walk the pier for $3. If you bring your own rod then it will be $3 for admission and $7.50 for each rod. They also carry fishing bait and a full line tackle shop as well.
14th Avenue Pier
The 14th Avenue Pier has been around since the 1920’s. It is known to many locals as the historic pier and has the famous Pier 14 restaurant there. The restaurant has been known to many visitors as one of the best restaurants in Myrtle Beach. You can come and rent fishing poles again where it costs $8 plus a $20 refundable deposit. If you are looking to fish with your own gear, then it costs $7 for the fishing pass and $2 for an additional pole. Please note that they do have a pole limit per person so you can only use 2 poles per person. 14th Avenue Pier also has bait in their shop so you are able to grab squid, shrimp, mullet and finger mullet for your fishing trip. They are open from 7 am to 11 pm so don’t miss out on the fun!
Myrtle Beach State Park Pier
Myrtle Beach State Park Pier is one of the first state parks to open in South Carolina in 1936. If you are looking for a quiet pier setting in Myrtle Beach, then this is your place to fish at. You can enjoy fishing, crabbing or even surf fishing while you are visiting the park. Located just 3 miles south of Myrtle Beach on U.S. 17 you will find this amazing pier. The pier is open during the park hours from 6 am to 8 pm. You will have to get a pier pass which costs $5.00 per adult, $2.50 per child ages 6-15 and SC Residents 65 & older would be $3.25. If you need to rent a fishing rod you can rent them for $10 from the pier gift shop and there is a refundable $25 deposit with each rod rented. What a great way to spend a day at the State Park.
While there are other fishing piers that you can visit in the Myrtle Beach area, we just thought these three were a good option for you. And if fishing off a pier is not for you, then why not give surf fishing a try. You will have to purchase a fishing license from either a local bait shop or online. But you can sit seaside and surf from the waves and in the sand. This is a great fun activity that you and your family can enjoy together. And if you are still searching for a Myrtle Beach vacation rental, we have several for you to choose from this fall. We hope to see you this fall while the weather is turning a bit cooler but you can still enjoy the sunshine and beach.
