The Isle of Palms fishing pier is a landmark of the front beach. It is a private pier for use by Sea Cabin and Oceanside owners and guest. If you are lucky enough to be staying at one of these units, I highly suggest bringing your fishing equipment. Just today I had time to walk down and check out who is catching what. I had a good chat with a gentleman that had caught a nice sized black drum, 3 trout, a little flounder, and many other species (whiting, little red drum, and spot). He mentioned he was having the best luck at high tide using cut shrimp and live mud minnows on a Carolina rig. In order to fish the pier it is required by South Carolina law to have a valid South Carolina saltwater fishing license. This hotline is available 7 days a week, 24 hrs a day: 1-866-714-3611.
