Myrtle Beach Fishing

Myrtle Beach Fishing

Myrtle Beach may be known as the Seaside Golf Capital of the World, but it is also known for the famous Grand Strand of beaches that offer excellent fishing along 60 miles of coast to over 14 million visitors per year. From the phenomenal inshore creeks and estuaries, beautiful beaches, numerous nearshore reefs, and big pelagics offshore, Myrtle Beach offers many different options for anglers.

Offshore fishing Myrtle Beach can provide rewarding catches of Sailfish and Blue Marlin. There are also lots of Mahi-mahi (Dolphinfish) and Wahoo in the offshore waters most of the year. Many different species of Tuna can be caught as well, including Blackfin, Skipjack, and Yellowfin.

Fishing the many artificial reefs and shipwrecks around Myrtle Beach can produce lots of Amberjacks, Black Sea Bass, Grouper, Grunt, Sharks, Snapper, and Triggerfish. Spanish Mackerel and King Mackerel can also be caught much of the year.

Myrtle Beach inshore fishing is known for its epic Flounder, Red Drum, and Speckled Trout bite that can be caught year round. Fishing the surf on the beaches or in the Intercoastal Waterway can produce good catches of Black Drum, Bluefish, Croaker and Sea Mullet as well.
