All Hooked Up Fishing Charters

All Hooked Up Fishing Charters is the result of a 30 years long fishing experience. Captain John is a retired police officer and a US Marine Corps veteran, who has been fishing since he was a kid. Retirement let him have more time for his hobby and passion, so he used the opportunity to the fullest and started this fishing charter. You can join Capt. John in Murrells Inlet any time of the year.

You’ll be fishing from a 22’ Nautic Star that accommodates up to 6 guests. The boat features a live bait tank, a cooler, and a private toilet, so even a full day trip will be a comfortable one.

Kids of all ages are also welcome but it’s best to inform the crew in advance, so they can prepare life vests in the right sizes. Your safety and fun are Capt. John’s main concern and he’ll do everything he can to make this trip memorable.

Depending on what you want to catch and where the fish are, you can go even up to 25 miles offshore. Closer to the shore you’ll encounter Flounder, Redfish, Kingfish, Spanish Mackerel, and Black Drum. Each trip can be adjusted to your needs, so let the captain know how you imagined your day out.

All your fishing gear is covered by the captain. There’s bottled water on the boat but feel free to bring other beverages and snacks. Don’t forget your sun protection and sunglasses. After the trip, the captain will clean your catch if you’re looking forward to having a bite of the freshest fish meat.

All Hooked Up Fishing Charters is ready to take you on an adventure whenever you decide it’s go time!
