Marlin Quay Marina, as well as the Crazy Sister Marina in Murrells Inlet, Hurricane Fleet in Calabash, and the Little River Fishing Fleet in Little River, are spots where you can find some of the most popular outfitters.


You should also go to one of Grand Strand’s several fishing piers for a fun day of angling but without all the inconveniences that come with bringing a lot of gear and boarding a boat. You will find 10 piers from Cherry Grove Fisher Pier located near the Carolina border to Veterans Pier in Murrells Inlet. Myrtle Beach is never out of special locations for anglers. A few of these hot spots are Pier 14, Second Avenue Pier, Myrtle Beach State Park Pier, and Springmaid Pier is close to the Bay View Resort. The Garden City Beach Pier, Apache Pier, and Surfside Beach Pier are situated on the outer parts of Myrtle Beach. They all offer everything you need to make sure that you will have fun with your father during this special day.

Surf Fishing

When you’ve got all the equipment and licenses you require, you can make the most out of the finest way to go fishing in Myrtle Beach just by taking a short walk to the shore. Even though it is better suited for more private parts of the beach, surf fishing is a good way to experience the thrill of the sport while being able to sit back and relax on the beach. You can also obtain your own bait if you use a cast net when catching small fish and then use them to catch bigger ones by casting out beyond the breakers. Be careful and make sure that you avoid swimmers.


If your Dad is more likely to enjoy freshwater fishing, you will also find several opportunities in inland lakes, streams, and rivers as well as along the Intracoastal Waterway, which gives you the chance to catch both freshwater and saltwater species. If you want to catch perch, bream, or bass then you should go to the Waccamaw River as well as Pee Dee River.

Even though there are several spots to reel in a few wall-hangers, your dad will not feel disappointed even if won’t be able to catch anything. Being able to spend a day with the family will be enough for him. Once you finish the trip, you can bring him to one of the best seafood restaurants in town. He will surely have the perfect Father’s Day celebration with you.
