Default Myrtle Beach???

Am heading to Myrtle Beach with my family for a week, starting the 21st of July. Last year I waded the Hobcaw Barony, and it was just a very expensive nature walk/wade. Can anybody lend some advice on that area?

Okay. Good advice.....I was hoping on something more specific on where and what to fish for. I really do not want to end up dunking shrimp off a pier.....I've been looking into guides, but am reluctant to foot the cost of a guide all by myself.

I have booked with Capt. Mike McDonald (Gurl-R-Boy Charters) out of Georgetown, NC, for Tarpon. Hope all goes well.

You can have shots at some really big fish at the Cherry Grove Inlet as shown in the video below.

Just watched that video, not a bad red stolen by quite a shark! Going on to try to catch the shark may have lacked a little fore-thought, however...

Hey guys,
I just joined up here and live in Myrtle Beach. I wish I could offer guidance on fishing here but so far my experience is just in freshwater for largemouth. I'm getting into fly fishing for reds soon, but all I know is what I've heard; the best time is high tide. I imagine that's about as universal as "look both ways before crossing the road." I hope you did well, Homer. Any pictures? Advice? Hunter, the best place I can suggest for fishing would be down in Murrell's Inlet. There is a public boat landing near the Hot Fish Club on old Hwy 17. Between it and the jetties there is a good sized flat that floods during high tide. I've been out there and gotten nibbles with casting gear, but I think I was using 3/0 hooks (and the tide was low).
