Have a trip coming up in June, is even worth taking gear to surf fish?
Alot has changed in 15-20yrs....The most phenomenal spot run I’ve ever witnessed in person was on a pier in myrtle beach back in the early 90’s. Can’t remember the name of it but me and my cousins caught spots two at a time till we’d filled up every cooler and bucket we had. Even bought another bucket at the pier shop and filled it up.
In the late 90’s to about 2003, I took my boat to cherry grove and caught flounder easily every single time we went out of the inlet and to this day, the biggest flounder I’ve ever seen in person, I saw caught by a boat beside us. Had to have been 10lbs+. Haven’t fished there in 15 years though.
When I first started fishing that inlet as kid, there wasn’t a house to be found on the inlet. Lol
Agreed.There is just too many people in the surf swimming to fish and it's not worth the risk of putting a hook into one of them, even if you were there first and/or if it was totally their fault, it just isn't worth the hassle. Stick to the pier is you want to fish.
