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. Located just 3 miles south of Myrtle Beach on U.S. 17 you will find this amazing pier. No fishing license is required if you are fishing off the pier, but if you are surf or shore fishing you will have to get a license. 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.

While there are other fishing piers that you can visit in the Myrtle Beach area, we just thought these three are a good option for you. And if fishing off a pier is just not for you, there are other fishing adventures you can do while in Myrtle Beach. There are plenty of other activities for you and your family to do while visiting the area. And if you are still searching for an 1-Bedroom 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.

Hurricane Florence

UPDATE: Hurricane Florence

First off we know many of our readers are experiencing the aftermath of Hurricane Florence. Our hearts go out to everyone as they work to return to normal life, and hopefully that’s soon.

Much of the coast of North Carolina and immediately inland are still feeling affects of the Hurricane. We just want to pass along this link to the American Red Cross Hurricane Florence Relief Fund as a show of support.

Myrtle Beach ended up being spared some of Florence’s more destructive forces, and thankfully we’re enjoying some tranquil weather. Clean up along the Grand Strand has been minimal and our resort is in perfect shape. After Hurricane Mathew two years ago we’re extra thankful and heart broken for the coast to our north and inland as they recover.

It’s forecasted to be rather warm and sunny, so please do consider a stay, we’d love to have you. Stay safe, and we hope to see you soon.
