Myrtle Beach Adventures: Fishing in the Winter
Do you enjoy fishing? Just because the summer season is over doesn’t mean fishing is too. Myrtle Beach is a great spot to fish year-round. There are several piers in the area that are great to check out. Some of the piers are free to walk, while others have a small fee. It’s a great way to enjoy the outdoors while on vacation.
Here are a few of our favorite places to go to fish and enjoy the lovely wintertime scenery:
Myrtle Beach State Park
Myrtle Beach State Park is a great area for fishing and other outdoor activities. It’s a good spot for the entire family with the number of available fishing spots, walking paths and bicycle trails. The park is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., November-March. It’s free to walk on the pier with paid park admission. A fishing pass will cost $4.50 and the rod rental is $4. Fishing permits are included. For more information: call 843-238-5326.
Second Avenue Pier
The Second Avenue Pier is located in the heart of Myrtle Beach. It has been newly renovated and is the anchor to Myrtle Beach’s oceanfront boardwalk. A daily fishing pass will cost $9.00, and there is a great fishing package at the pier for $25. It includes the fishing pass, rod rental and tray of bait. After you have finished fishing, you can also enjoy some delicious food at the Second Avenue Pier Restaurant. We highly recommend the shrimp and grits! For more information, contact 843-445-7437.
14th Avenue Pier
The 14th Avenue Pier is the longest standing pier in Myrtle Beach, dating back to 1926. It was nearly destroyed during hurricane Hugo, but managed to stay in place. There is a gift shop to browse and delicious food to try. Pier 14 offers low-cost prices, so that the entire family can enjoy the day! Passes are $7 for a full day and $7 to rent poles.
