Cherry Grove Fishing Pier
The Cherry Grove Fishing Pier extends 985 feet into the Atlantic Ocean so there is plenty of room for fishing for both serious and casual fishing enthusiasts. For those who don't care to fish, there is a 2-tier viewing deck which provides a magnificent view of the ocean and surrounding area. The biggest tiger shark ever caught was caught at this pier. Other fishing records include a second place king, a first-place sheeps head, and a record whiting.
They charge $8.00 to park and when you get insdie and say something about it, they say they don't own the parking lot. Well Duh it has a sign in that say Cherry Grove Pier Parking. Then you get out on the pier and it is in need of a lot of repair.
After reading on their website about the great fishing. We decided the entry fee and pole fee would be worth it.
We got their about 2 hours before full tide to get rigged up and ready to go. Their website failed to mention the $5.00 fee just to park.
One of our fishing poles was not allowed because our reel was to "BIG"
So $50+ dollars later we were set up with 4 poles and 2 crab nets.
We rigged up 4 poles with all different bait, bottom fishing ect. We tried everything.
4+ hours later I go in and ask the guy whats up...he tells me.....try about midway down the pier...He said we "Might" could catch something on the bottom but nothing out at the end of the pier.
Bottom line is dont waste your money!
I come to cherry grove area because its friendly,low key and not too pricey. Upon my recent visit to the pier ( which i visit every time we come down ) I was shocked to see, the little hard to get a parking spot lot fenced off, and charging $5.00 to park to just walk on your pier. NO thank you I say I didnt visit and won't be back !!! to your estab.
The spot fishing is the best,most of people are friendly,But the loud mouth drunks that see you catching fish move in between you and just makes a mess of things.Over all the pier master stays on top of that mess.We still love Cherry Grove pier,SEE-YA soon!
Best Pier in NC/SC....and if your fishing you are always going to have walkers so get over it!! Kids love the pier and they pay to walk it so if you dont like it fish somewhere else. BUt it was a GREAT FISHING PEIR very wide, plenty of room!!! we loved it, we will be back soon!!!!!
You will find piers at Cherry Grove Myrtle Beach, Surfside and Garden City. All of these piers are for fishing and they are businesses. Most of them were built using private funds. The cost of building a pier is well in excess of $1,000.00 a foot. They are subject to repairs every year plus subject to being destroyed every Winter and every Hurricane season. So please respect the fact that someone invested their money to build it and maintain it and it is a business. Given what it costs to build and maintain the small amount you are asked to pay is very reasonable. Give the owners a break. I do not have an interest in the pier and I don't know the folks who own it. I watched them rebuild the Surfside pier after Hurricane Hugo.
Fishing off this pier is the most fun I have ever had. When it was privately owned (not by prince hotel) the prices were great and the fishing was out of this world. After the prince took it over the price is very high but the fishing is nothing short of amazing. I can sit all day and catch fish every minute. Night fishing is the best. I was catching 3 1/2 foot sharks and was the main attraction of the night. At 14 years old you can't beat that. The experience is one of the most memorable of my childhood and I recomend it to all. I am going back this year and it is all I can think of. If you haven't fished it you have to. I'm excited and can't stop thinking about how fun it was!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11
I fished the pier three days, the spots were running and you could only catch them one one side of the pier midway out. The problem with this was it was elbow to elbo with men that bring big coolers and try to catch what seemed like hundreds of spots. Kids didnt have a chance to catch one because of this greed. Your better off learning to surf fish right out in front of those guys on th beach.As far as the price to fish lol grin and bear it lol. you can also sit closer in on th pier and wait for th tide to come in and you,ll catch one if some hog doesnt move down from the spot that he has caught fish all day and try to set his cooler on you lol.
I have fished this pier daily for the last 3.5 years, we catch more fish than most piers in the area and the staff is WONDERFUL.
I am not an employee and I pay for a yearly pass, people who complain about anything there have not been there enough to know anyone and really don't know fishing.
date is required here and no option to put min. of 4 days a week april thru nov.
Just got back from a 3 day business trip to Myrtle Beach. I stayed at the Prince Resort and fished on the Cherry Grove Pier. The Prince Resort is new, and nicely run facility, which also operates the pier. I only paid $70 a night plus taxes = $82. Can't beat that for ocean front in September. The rooms are very nice and laid out well for small efficiency condos. I would recommend this for a family vacation anytime of the year. Even the cheapest marsh view rooms have a great shot to the ocean and marsh. The pier is OK, but nothing to write home about. Springmaid Pier (S Myrtle Beach) is better, and Folly Beach Pier (Charleston) is the best! The Cherry Grove Pier is a little misleading. The pier store is small and lacks character and supplies. It appears to have been put together by someone who never has been on a pier. Their website is better than being there in person. The $1.50 walk on the pier fee is nuts! They would easily more than make up for the fee, if they expanded and supplied the store. But, you will have a good time fishing or enjoying the beach. I would definitely go back.
