Reel Salty

Join Reel Salty charters and enjoy your day on the beautiful waters out of Murrells Inlet in South Carolina! Captain Jeffery Maples knows where the fish are hiding and how to get there. A day out with him is an exciting adventure, which can result in some outstanding catches.

Explore the deep blue aboard a 24’ Key West center console boat. This is a clean, spacious vessel, which will get you to the fishing grounds in no time. For your comfort, there is a toilet on board, along with an ice-box to keep the catch fresh during the day. The boat can accommodate up to 5 anglers.

All the necessary equipment to put your catch together, as well as the fishing licenses will be provided. Capt. Jeff will have rods, reels, tackle, live bait, and lures for you. After the trip, your catch will be cleaned and bagged for you to have for dinner later, or to fill the freezer.

Depending on how much time you intend to spend on the water and which species you’d like to go for, you’ll be fishing inshore, nearshore, the reefs, wrecks, and backcountry. Reel Salty uses a variety of fishing techniques, but you’ll mainly be bottom fishing for huge reef-dwellers.

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!

Bring your kids if they are 8 or older with you and spend some quality family time in nature, teaching them how to fish! If you want, you can bring your own snacks and drink with you, as well as some sun protection so you can relax.

Come make some unforgettable memories on the waters of South Carolina with Reel Salty!

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!
