Moving to Mt. Pleasant where to fish?

I’m finally moving back to SC in about a week to go back to school and I was hoping to find some good places to fish from shore as I will not have access to a boat of my own. Where can I find some good piers, creeks that I can walk to or ponds around the Charleston area.

I don’t know where you are going to live in Mt. Pleasant but if you want freshwater try hitting up the neighborhood ponds. The Goose Creek reservoir is alright if you don’t have a boat. Saltwater, try the bridge at the end of Pitt Street in Mt. Pleasant. Sullivan’s has some pretty good jettys. Downtown you have the battery and Long Lake, that’s the lake beside the elementary school. The piers will cost you 3-5 bucks and I’m pretty cheap so I never fish them. Honestly sometimes I just get on google maps and just look around for public places that look good and then I ride out there and see how the fishing is. Good luck.

I see 2 or 3 older ladies that are ALWAYS fishing at remleys point in Mt. P. Several boat landings in West Ashley and James Island as well.

The Pitt Street Bridge in Old Village in Mount P is usually pretty good but it’s hit or miss sometimes. You can catch spot tails (reds), flounder, trout, and the occassional shark or ray. I also like to surf fish Sullivans Island and if I’m looking for sharks I go to Breach Inlet between Sullivans Island and Isle of Palms. Breach Inlet is pretty hit or miss too but when’s it’s on, it’s on.
