We will meet at one of the best surf fishing spots at Huntington Beach State Park where we will provide surf fishing instruction including best bait to use and tackle for surf fishing. We will show how to cast a net for bait, look for ideal places for casting and fishing for inshore game fish. We will provide surf rods, bait and rod holders also beach chairs and coolers. We will go over the rules and regulations as well as fish limits and size restrictions for saltwater fishing here in SC. We will show how to rig the fishing poles with the right tackle and hook the bait including live bait. The fish caught will be identified and show the proper way to measure and weigh the fish. We will talk about the conservation efforts to preserve the habitat of our coastal marine life and the tag and release program. We will end the surf fishing experience talking about how to properly clean and ice the fish for best results for cooking or for travel back home.

I grew up fishing on the North Carolina coast learning from some of the old timers surf fishing at first then going offshore for big game fishing during the summer. When i was at summer camp I taught fishing and even became a fishing instructor at a BSA national jamboree. I love the coast and started interviewing fishermen here in South Carolina for a National Marine Fisheries program for several years. In the early 80's i did fishing reports for local TV stations and started producing my own sportfishing show called "Reel Fishin' Videos". I love living in South Carolina's Seafood Capital !
The place we will visit is Huntington Beach State Park at the north end of the beach which has plenty of parking and well known for the great surf fishing by locals and visitors . With plenty of space to fish away from sun bathers and swimmers. Although fishing is best during the spring and fall when the inshore fish migrate it is also good anytime as long as the weather is nice. You will need a SC saltwater license and a small park entry fee.
9月25日 水曜日 10:30～12:30
Guests must have a SC saltwater license can be purchased online at SC Dept of Natural Resources web site or at local Walmart. There is also a park fee which can be purchased at the entry gate.
