Where to fish at Garden City, SC - Main Forum
Posted July 06 2010 - 4:33 PM
We are making a family trip to Garden City, SC during the 1st week of August. I realize this may not be prime fishing time, but I would like to do a little surf and pier fishing while there. I can't just sit on the beach like the wife and kids. What can I catch this time of year? Best baits/lures? Time of Day? Etc. We also want to take the Kids on a 1/2 or Full day charter. Can anyone recommend a good charter service. In this case, I just want to catch as many fish of any species available to keep the kids interested, Inshore, offshore or otherwise. Where is the best tackle shop for local advice?

South Carolina DNR has a weekly fishing report that includes Garden City Pier and inshore reports for the Myrtle Beach area. If you have a kayak, try kayaking the creeks. I guess you can surf fish the beach, but you'll have better luck trying inlet mouths and using lighter gear- med to med heavy freshwater stuff.
And, you may need a license, depending on what you do.
I will not eat vienna sausages or pudding in mayonnaise jars.

Best Charters/Area - Murrell's inlet. Not too far from where you are. Best B&T - Perry's, hands down. Every bait you can imagine plus some you never thunked about.
Flounder/Speckled Trout/Redfish would be your best bets this time of year,
in creeks and inlets.
