Fish Hook Charters specializes in connecting anglers of all skill levels and expertise to the wonderful waters out of North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The company is run by Capt. Ronnie, a professional fisherman with a wealth of local knowledge.

You will be fishing aboard the ‘Fish Hook II’, a 45’ boat with a pair of Volvo engines. She is a spacious vessel that can comfortably hold up to 6 anglers. The Fish Hook II features an air-conditioned cabin with bench seats and portable table, as well as a Pompanette full-support fighting chair, a V-berth, and a full head. She is also rigged with top-of-the-line electronics and professional accessories.

Their trips range from nighttime Shark fishing to a whole day out in the blue waters. You can enjoy your trip any day of the year, including the off-season that goes from November through February.

From trolling to bottom fishing, the crew can do it all. Stay closer to shore and get your hands on Spanish Mackerel and Kingfish. Head a bit further out for Mahi Mahi, Bonito, Jacks, Grouper, Black Seabass, Triggerfish, Snapper, and who knows what else?

If you are up to a challenge, explore the waters up to 50 miles out. Troll or bottom fish for anything from Grouper and Snapper to Triggerfish and Sailfish to name a few.

Just bring your food and drinks and hop onboard. The crew will provide you with everything you need to make a great catch possible.

I've been fishing the ocean and creeks of SC's coast since I was ten years old. I developed a love for fishing that led me to start a charter fishing company nearly 20 years ago. After thousands of trips on the water, I still enjoy helping people to experience a great day on the water. I am a master US Coast Guard captain with experience running large sport fishing vessels, smaller charter vessels, and commercial fishing boats.
