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 !

Where you'll be

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 12 reviews.

Visited Myrtle Beach for a few days. This was perfect for just a few hours on the beach to experiencing SC. Paul is very nice and the state park we fished at is VERY cool. Wildlife abundant with cool birds and alligators!

We had a good time learning about surf fishing. Paul taught us what to look for with the breaks in the waves, what type of bait to use, and how to catch the bait. Even though we didn’t catch many fish, we still had a great time.

My son and I have surf fished in the ocean practically every summer. Never being very successful, I decided to sign my son's and myself up for Paul's 2 hour surf fishing class. Even after fishing nearly 20 years, Paul showed us and gave great fishing tips. Definitely enjoyable and a great experience.
