Locals agree—the Folly Beach Fishing Pier is the Lowcountry’s best destination for pier fishing. So what better place to enter a tournament and compete for awesome prizes? The Folly pier stretches 1,045 feet into the ocean and offers spectacular views, fishing, dining and special events throughout the year. The Lowcountry’s mild temperatures allow for year-round fishing, with common catches off the Folly pier including blue fish, sheepshead, spotted sea trout and whiting. King mackerel and Spanish mackerel can be caught off the pier diamond. The Folly Beach Fishing Pier is also home to Locklear’s Beach City Grill, the perfect place to dine overlooking the water. Later this summer, the Folly Beach Fishing Pier will host its end-of-season tournament on Sept. 27.
