Shad fishing near Myrtle

Got a MB Condo third week of February. I'm wondering what's the closest place a fella in a canoe or kayak could catch American or Hickory Shad? Any suggestions for late February fishing around Myrtle Beach would be appreciated. Thanks.

Waccamaw river or the waterway are the closest.

They have usually already started running by now if I recall correctly but its a been a long time since I went shad fishing.

When your using artificial lures from the shore, do you use a carolina rig? Is it the same for fishing from the pier?
Another question is about pier manners. No overhead casting right?
I usually use live or frozen bait, but the carolina rig works great with artificial lures like jig head with a grub or other baits.... I use just the jig head and a mud minnow for flounder fishing and the carolina rig also.... on the pier i just under cast mine over the edge of the pier rail, I have saw people over cast when there's no one close to them. :fishing:

I'm going to be surf fishing the 2nd week of September. What fish are most abundant to fish for? Is it still flounder season that time of year?

You can print or download the fish ID, creel and size limit charts to your phone and always have the info you need when you fish

Just finished this brand new rig chart. Of course its not to scale and every fisherman has his own variations of each rig, but this will help you understand the basic types of rigs. bear in mind that I personally do not use snaps or swivels unless absolutely necessary, ( Carolina rigs.)

Carolina rigs are good for piers and boats, even rolling. The fish finder rig allows you to use a pyramid sinker. this keeps the waves or current from washing your bait back up on the beach

This is NOT the end all and be all of king fishing on the piers. This is just a beginners lesson to understand how to rig for kings on our piers. NOW BEFORE ANYONE HAS A HEART ATTACK....I did NOT steal this from the surfside pier page. They stole it from me. I put this page together a few years ago and never OK'ed them to publish it. As a matter of fact, The pic of the guy standing with the king tail around his neck is my Father. The pics of me tying the rigs are shot on my coffee table. Anyhow, I figured this might help some of the newbies.
