Man catches massive mackerel at Springmaid Pier in Myrtle Beach

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Holy mackerel! An angler landed the first King Mackerel of the season at Springmaid Pier this past weekend, and it's the biggest catch there in three years.

Charlie Demore hooked the 32.7-pound, 53.5-inch fish at the iconic pier, making it the biggest catch there since 2013, according to a news release from the local attraction.

Springmaid Pier is a Myrtle Beach landmark that hosts notable fishing tournaments and other family-friendly activities throughout the year. The nearby Springmaid Beach Resort was recently renovated.
