Reel Salty is a premier fishing guide and charter service, cruising out of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina. Captain Jeff knows where the fish are hiding and how to get there. A day out with his Reel Salty charters is an exciting adventure, which can result in some outstanding catches!

Enjoy your fishing trip with Reel Salty aboard a 24-foot Key West boat, which comes powered by a 225 HP Yamaha engine. This is a clean, spacious vessel with a maximum cruising speed of 35 knots. Its navigational electronics include a GPS, a VHF radio, and a fish finder. For your comfort, there is a toilet on board, along with an ice-box to keep the catch fresh during the day. As well as that, the boat is fitted with a live bait tank, outriggers, and downriggers.  Those anglers who are up to a challenge can request to use the fighting chair.

Up to five guests are welcome to join Reel Salty on the waters of South Carolina. Depending on how much time you intend to spend on the water and which species you’d like to go for, you can choose from four, six, and eight-hour packages. You will be fishing inshore, nearshore, the reefs, wrecks, and backcountry. Reel Salty uses a variety of fishing techniques, which include the seasonal kite fishing, jigging, trolling, spinning, and bottom fishing along with light and heavy tackle.

Depending on the season and what is biting, you will get an opportunity to catch Cobia, Flounder, Sheepshead, Spanish Mackerel, Black Seabass, Spadefish, Black Drum, Bluefish, Cobia, and who knows what else!

A trip with Reel Salty comes inclusive with the fishing licenses for you and your party, as well as all the necessary equipment to put your catch together. You will be provided with rods, reels, tackle, live bait, and lures. After the trip, your catch will be cleaned and vacuum sealed or freezer bagged for you to have for dinner later. If you want, you can bring your own snacks and drink with you.

I became a charter Captain because I want to share with people the beauty of the Carolinas and show them our awesome fishery. I am not a Captain that will sit in one spot and not move all day. I believe in going after them and if they move off one piece of structure then I'm moving to where they are. My clients pay to catch fish and that's just what we are going to do!

I would recommend!!!  We had to come in early because my 16 year old son and 20 year old nephew got sea sick on the boat.  The boat and crew were nice.

Thank you for understanding what effects the winds have on fishing. But this is the one trip where we can truly talk about the big one that got away.
