Why Offshore Fishing Should be on Your List of Myrtle Beach Things to Do this Father’s Day

Father’s Day 2021 is right around the corner, and since Father’s Day 2020 was essentially a flop, dads across the United States have bigger and better dreams for this holiday. And across the country, fathers have been celebrating their special status since back in 1910 when Sonora Smart Dodd, an Arkansas native, started the holiday in Spokane, Washington. 

The first Father’s Day celebration was on June 19, 1910. Sonora’s father was a veteran of the Civil War. His name was William Jackson Smart. Her father was a single parent who raised six children in the area. And since then, Father’s Day has landed on the third Sunday in June; all intended to celebrate the fathers’ vital role. The holiday has been so significant that it became an official holiday in 1972.

And fathers all look at their special day in their way. Some dads look to the day as a way to soak up some quality time with their children. Other dads use the day to get away and do something fun for themselves. Both approaches are perfectly acceptable. But one thing is for sure; whether dad wants a day with the kids or away from the kids, an offshore fishing trip might be the perfect gift for that angler lurking within.

  2. Fishing in the sunshine provides a healthy dose of Vitamin D (of course, we recommend that dad lather on plenty of sunscreen to stay safe)

  4. Fishing reduces stress, and we all know how much stress we are under these days
  5. Fishing with family members or friends is an excellent bonding experience
  6. Fishing is great for dad’s self-esteem, especially if he catches the big one
