I am actually in Murrells Inlet which is a bit south of Myrtle Beach, and north of Pawleys Island. I'm new to this area and fishing it plus I'm restricted to piers and maybe some boat fishing due to my MS.
Since I can't ride my motorcycle or golf these days fishing is about what I have left for outdoor activities.

Any tips are appreciated. I've been fishing Veteran's Pier since it's the closest and free but get tired of pin fish stealing my shrimp.

Welcome to the Forum, Russ, Use a very small hook, size 10 or smaller, and catch the pinfish and use it for bait to catch the red. Use a bigger hook for the red, of course. Good luck!

Russ, I live in MB and also am new to surf fishing. I started fishing piers also. Lots of little Whiting and such. Looks like fishing will be slow to March. Anybody got other suggestions?

A lot of sharks were caught off the piers during the winter back in the late 60s.
