Winter getaway: A family fishing adventure in Myrtle Beach

Shark Day in South Carolina

Popular with winter weary Canucks, this beach town has great saltwater angling action

After landing a few more drum in the sheltered channels around Myrtle Beach, the tide slackened, and the inshore fishing slowed down. So we headed a few miles out onto the open ocean to bottom-fish on a reef. Fishing these nearshore reefs is a particular treat for freshwater anglers. Not only do they teem with hungry fish, you never know what you’ll haul up. Using simple three-way rigs with 80-pound test (you’ll find out why in a moment) we dropped bait and almost instantly hooked up. Here Sam has a black sea bass, and I’ve got  small bluefish.
