When in North Myrtle Beach, the Cherry Grove Pier is a great place to try your hand at fishing. The pilings of the pier are the home of bluefish, red drum, pompano, and sea trout.

Boyd Pond

This is a quiet spot for fishing, with no motorized boats. If it’s the relaxation that you’re looking for over catching lots of different fish, this is the best place to do so. Fishing here won’t fill up your bag with fish, but you can find peace of mind while catching a few fish.

It is located in Boyd Pond Park and has a fishing pier and boardwalk. As long as your boat doesn’t have a motor or uses a trolling motor, you can also take a boat into the 30-acre pond. Fish how you want in solitude at this pond.

The Old Street Pitt Street Bridge in Mount Pleasant

For shallow water fishing, it is hard to beat The Old Street Pitt Bridge. This water is home to flounder, whiting, bluefish, redfish, sea trout, crabs, and shrimp. When the tide is high you can fish for several varieties of fish. During low tide, there is a creek nearby that also has a lot of fish.

This street bridge is a good spot for fishing whether you live in the area or want to spend the day sightseeing in a new location. Its stunning views of the waterway and the Charleston Harbor make it a popular destination for not just fishing but general sightseeing.

Great range bag from @gaugeoutfitters. Tons of room and great quality feels solid. Two panels on the inside that can be moved to size or removed for an open bag. Gun mat inside a side pocket that can also be removed. Molle system on one side for any add ons...



I love this place! They have the best all American made goods that you get! I love the layout and storage options in their bags, hands down my favorite bags. I met these guys and they are genuine, down to earth, hard working Americans! ....



I received my new range bag and am amazed. I didn't realize that it came with all of the "extras" like the dividers and the gun mat. Gauge really is providing more value than what you're paying for and the quality is top shelf. Nice work Alex!
