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.
This place gave my fishing experience a whole other side! It offered a lot for me to catch and had great scenic views from far out on the ocean. It needed to be a little more clean, but it is a fishing pier what can you expect!LOL! The staff of the pier where very organized, very nice, and easy to work with. People on the pier are very friendly! The prices for bait and admission are fairly reasonable. I enjoyed my trip with my uncle and my mom! I plan to come back again and make it just as good, if not better!
I went to go fishing on the pier with my family and some friends. I was going to take 2 of my 3 children fishing while my wife sat on the beach with our youngest. I was met in the parking lot by the rudest individual I have met in quite some time. He didn't like the way we parked and the fact that my wife was going to sit on the beach. Even though 3 of us were going to fish on the pier. He told us that if we all weren't going to fish we had to move our car. When I refused he went and got 2 other individuals to remove us. They both came out, 1 was the manager, and instead of asking us what the problem was he immediately became hostile and told us we would have our car towed. All because a few of us wanted to fish and spend money at their establishment. By the time I left they had confrontations with 2 other couples in the parking lot. Please find another pier to go to if your in town and want to fish
The Cherrygrove pier is the best place to go take A walk see the ocean and just ohhhhhh and ahhhhh. The staff is very friendly and helpfull and the price is right. The fishermen are not very friendly to non fishers.
The Cherry Grove Pier is definitely "My Kinda' Livin'". I try to have a "fishing outing" there at least once a year and each trip is different but, I never fail to enjoy each one...guess I just like fishing that much.
And, you don't have to take the expensive offshore fishing boat trips to catch citation size fish as many a record has been broken from this pier. It stretches almost a quarter mile into the ocean and such fish as King Mackral, Cobia, Blue Fish and Stripers, just to name a few, can be caught there. It's the OCEAN and all fishes are possible. A run of Croaker, Mullet or Spots can be an enjoyable fishing experience for the "die-hard" fisherman, families and children alike. All types of fishing tackle can be used, but if you want to make sure they aren't "the one that got away", you may want to consider bringing some with a little heavier line. I always enjoy helping those that have never fished in saltwater get the right rig together.
I call each visit to the PIER another "fishing experience", because fishing has many facets. There is fishing for the enjoyment of fishing and catching fishes for a cook-out with friends or preserving for those dinners when fish are the main course or for just visiting. Always amazing that you will find people from all over the WORLD visiting there. You'll be surprised to find people from your State and maybe from your Town. And, you may even get a glimpse of "Vanna White" visiting with family and friends (Myrtle Beach is her hometown).
These outings are always great and enjoyable and definitely worth the money. But, you have to always keep one thing in mind.....you are "fishing" and no one says you have to be "catching", LOL!! Definitely can recommend the Cherry Grove Fishing Pier to anyone visiting in Myrtle Beach. Get up early, go to the "Driftwood Resturant" for a hardy breakfast and get out there amongst them.
We went to Cherry Grove pier to go fishing in March. Being from the mountains we had never fished at the beach. A man on the pier later told us that it was too cold, and way to windy to even get a bite. Although the man that we payed charged us 20 dollars a person (pole rental and fishing) and told us that they would bite shrimp bait really well that day. We stayed on the pier for over four hours and never once even got a bite. NO REFUND, no fish, no bites and the poles didn't work real well. The man later told us (while we were leaving) that they hadn't redone them yet for the new year. There are piers that are free to walk on...(Cherry Grove isn't), and free to fish on with your own poles...(Cherry Grove isn't). Cherry Grove rated number 2.....ha ha ha.... I think not!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Cherry Grove pier has great fishing and is usually not very crowded. Cherry Grove is also very close to all the Myrtle Beach attractions, but has none of the traffic or Chaos that Myrtle Beach tends to have.
