I am headed to Myrtle Beach for just a couple days… I am a freshwater fisherman but would really like to do some surf fishing while there. Normally I would want to target a certain type of fish but since my stay will be so short, I just want to catch some, any kind, of fish. What are my best odds?
Surf Fishing is all about targeting fish that make a living from food that is stirred up by the waves, and tide movement. These fish often dig in the sand or mud for crabs etc. Essentially scavengers!
You need to be able to cast your line approx 40-50 yards, or behind the breaking waves if possible. A local tackle shop might be able to advise you on the best sinker to attach to your line, as the sinker does most of the work when casting out.
Do a search on You Tube as well.
