Family fishing fun in Myrtle Beach
Even in snowbird season, there are plenty of fish in the sea
The inshore action slowed down with the slack tide, so we headed a few miles out into the ocean to fish over an artificial reef of sunken freighters. After some very precise maneuvering, we anchored directly over Captain John’s “spot on the spot” and immediately began hauling up one- to three-pound black seas bass—as in 30 seconds after your weight would hit the bottom, you’d have one on. Here we used simple three-way swivel rigs tied with 60- or 80-pound mono and baited with, ahem, chunks of the first bass we landed.
