MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A huge crowd gathered on the beach this week after a surf-fisher caught a ray in the Windy Hill area.

Donna Leeke, from New Jersey, was surf-fishing and had a female ray on the line for nearly two hours, according to Ross Caton, vising from Greenville.

When the ray was reeled in, about 200 people gathered to watch, Caton said.

WMBF News has reached out to the Department of Natural Resources for information about rays and the department’s policy.
