Saltwater fishing is a popular pastime for Grand Strand vacationers. While there are plenty of fishing charters in North Myrtle Beach and parts south, some of the best fishing can be found a little closer to shore. Here are a few of our favorite fishing piers along the Grand Strand.
Cherry Grove Fishing Pier
Located at 3500 North Ocean Boulevard in North Myrtle Beach, this historic pier was built in the 1950s and is considered a local landmark. Many world record catches have been made at the Cherry Grove Pier, including a 1780-pound tiger shark and a 98-pound tarpon! At a whopping 985 feet, this pier also has a two-story observation deck, and a full-service tackle and bait shop with everything needed for a day of fishing. A fishing license is not required from the Cherry Grove Pier with paid admission.
Myrtle Beach State Park
Located on the south end of Myrtle Beach, Myrtle Beach State Park is home to an oceanfront maritime forest and some of the best fishing around. Admission to the park and beach access is $5 for adults, $3 for kids, and free for children 5 and under. You don’t need a license to fish from the pier, but there is a small additional fee. The park also offers summer programs for children, including a catch and release pier fishing class.
14th Avenue Pier
This iconic pier was first built in the 1920s, and while it’s been through a few renovations, it’s still a great place to catch some fish in the heart of downtown Myrtle Beach. In addition to purchasing fishing passes and bait, pole rentals are available at the 14th Avenue Pier for vacationers.
Springmaid Pier stretches 1,060 feet in length, and is 36 feet wide, with a 110-foot “T” at the end. As the largest wooden pier on the Grand Strand, this Myrtle Beach landmark is home to numerous fishing tournaments, including the Grand Strand Fishing Rodeo. For a small fee, guests can purchase a general admission day pass that includes a license and permit to fish off the pier.
Other great Grand Strand fishing piers include:
- 2nd Avenue Pier (Downtown Myrtle Beach)
- Apache Pier (North Myrtle Beach)
- Garden City Pier (Garden City Beach)
