If you're the type that likes to fish from the beach, a dock, or go crabbing or shrimping: then as of today, July 1, you'll need to pickup a modestly priced "saltwater recreational fishing license" from the state.

The Post and Courier has a narrative approach to the regulation change, while the S.C. Department of Natural Resources has all the facts you ever need.

You can buy a license online, or calling (866) 714-3611, or by visiting many local fishing-supply shops.
