Fish Hook Charters invites you to North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina to enjoy the thrill of catching big fish. Join the crew aboard their spacious vessel and explore those fantastic waters in comfort and style.

They will welcome you aboard the ‘Fish Hook I’, a 36’ custom-built boat. She comes powered by twin Cummins engines and is rigged with modern electronics and safety equipment. The Fish Hook I has a bathroom for your comfort, along with electric reels, tournament-grade tackle, and plenty of space for up to 6 anglers.

From inshore adventures to a deep sea offshore extravaganza up to 20 miles offshore, there is a trip for you. Fish Hook Charters is on the water year-end, even during the off-season from November through February.

Troll for Kingfish and Spanish Mackerel or venture further out for a healthy dose of Wahoo, Sailfish, Tuna, and other top-water Pelagics. Bottom fish for Shark, Seabass, and whichever bottom-dweller you manage to find. Head up to 20 miles out for Grouper, Jack, Bonito, Mahi Mahi, Black Seabass, and many other species. Or go all the way up to 50 miles offshore for Sailfish, Amberjack, Triggerfish, Snapper, and more.
The warm months are the best for trolling for Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Mackerel, and Wahoo. When the waters are colder, you can get your hands on Snapper, Black seabags, and Grouper.

All trips come with the use of quality rods, reels, bat, and licenses. Fish cleaning is also available at no extra cost.

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.
