From what I have witnessed and heard the fishing shuts down at dark and the predator's come out. I believe that is why you can fish off Myrtle Beach State Park pier for free after dark.

I never new you could fish off the pier at night. I thought they closed up at dark due to not having lights on the pier. Thanks for the update.

The state park closes their gates at about 9:00 at night. You can only fish off the pier at night if you are camping in the park.

Fishing off a dark pier in the middle of the night can be very productive especially with bait , all types of predatory fish prowl that structure under the cover of night .

Any special types of bait or rigs? Glow sticks?
There's a couple of piers that are open late. I think Cherry Grove opens till midnight. Would be interesting to try one day.

Several years ago I used to fish off the garden City Pier all night long. They would open at 6:00 in the morning and you could fish till 6:00 the next morning. I don't know if they still have that arrangement maybe worth calling.

I myself don't fish on piers but I do fish on occasion along side of them casting the length of the pier from the ground before any people show up at daybreak . I fish the numerous inlets further north in Southeastern N.C almost exclusively during the overnight hours.
