The ocean waters of the Grand Strand create one of the most fun things to do in Myrtle Beach–saltwater fishing. With the Atlantic Ocean full of fresh fish, grabbing a reel and trying your luck at fishing is easy to do. Plus, the numerous Myrtle Beach piers make casting your rod and reel convenient and affordable. The most common fish caught off the coast of Myrtle Beach are black sea bass, snapper, grouper, larger sea bass, trigger, dolphin, wahoo, and king mackerel.
