Thanks for all your help and input on places to stay along the SC coast. We had a great time!! My daughter had been wanting to go out on a shark charter and we took a day and did that. The highlight for her was seeing the dolphins swimming next to the boat while we were fishing. The downside was only catching four small sharks. The best fishing was from the Springmaid Pier in Myrtle Beach. I took a couple of "big cat rods" down with me and caught some bluefish for bait. Since it is against county ordinance to "fish for sharks", we decided to fish for bluefin tuna and Atlantic grouper. :big_smile: The last night we "accidentally" caught several three and four foot sharks and several smaller ones. You kinda draw a crowd when you bring one of those things up on the pier. The Ugly Stik Tiger rods and the Abu Garcia 7000's did the trick on landing the feisty sharks. I did have a run and a brief hook-up from one "BIG FISH", that hit a bluefish head on a 8/0 Gamakatsu circle hook, but the shark bit clean through the 108 pound Malin steel leader We never hooked any of the Atlantic grouper or bluefin tuna we were after....hehheheheheh!!
