Elliott Beach Rentals wants to offer some great tips on fishing while you are on vacation!!!

The Grand Strand area offers several piers for fishing. A fishing license is not required for pier fishing, or if you’re fishing from a rental or area charter boat. The most common fish caught in the waters off the coast of Myrtle Beach is black sea bass, snapper, grouper, larger sea bass, trigger, dolphin, wahoo, and king mackerel. Saltwater Fishing Licenses are required for individuals 16 and older harvesting oysters or clams,or individuals fishing from privately owned boats. Click Here for current license pricing.
