Visit Murrells Inlet for some exciting fishing opportunities off the coast of South Carolina with Fish On Charters! Catering to both family groups and experienced anglers, Captain Lee Thomas is well-practiced in providing an enjoyable time on the water.

Capt. Lee will take you out aboard a 22’ Bullsbay center console boat. It’s powered by a 150 HP Yamaha engine and can accommodate up to 6 anglers. The boat is air-conditioned, which is a much-needed thing when spending your day on the water.

All the equipment you will need is included in the charter rate, and the captain will provide you with rods, reels, and tackle, as well as live bait.

On inshore fishing trips, you can expect to target Redfish, Flounder, Trout, and Tarpon. Nearshore trips will take you fishing for King Mackerel, Sharks, Spadefish, and bottom dwellers. More experienced anglers will enjoy traveling further offshore to target Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, Sailfish, and Marlin.

All you have to do is choose the trip that suits you best. Whether you want to check the bite offshore or don’t feel like traveling too far out, Capt. Lee will accommodate your needs. Kids are welcome on board, so don’t hesitate to make this is a memorable family adventure!
