#266

Feeding frenzy!  Up the road from Charleston by a few hours is another tourist destination; Myrtle Beach.

These crazy fish were found at "Lake Broadway" of Broadway at the Beach in Myrtle Beach, SC.  It's a popular attraction, parsing out quarters for fistfuls of fish food to toss into the water below the boardwalk.  These fish have been well conditioned.  They wait, mouths gaping open as if to scream out in starvation, waiting for the next gullible tourist to toss them food.  They aren't the only scavengers, they fight for this food alongside ducks and turtles.  From what I understand, when this attraction opened in 1995, this lake was stocked with Israeli Carp, Catfish, Japanese Carp, Bream and Hybrid Bass.  I'd say they are flourishing. It's certainly one of my favorite things to see here.
