Reel Assault Fishing Charters

Spend a day fishing in Murrells Inlet and enjoy the water with Reel Assault Fishing Charters. You and Captain Jeff Maples will embark on the inshore waters and have fun chasing plenty of interesting species that live in this part of South Carolina. The captain is a lifelong angler and he knows how to make your trip successful and fun, so join him and have a lovely sea adventure in Murrells Inlet.

Your trip will start on a 20’ sea Hunt center console, a comfy boat that can easily accommodate 4 guests and that is powered by a single 150 HP Yamaha engine. Apart from the modern navigation electronics, it’s equipped with a wireless trolling motor, and two livewells. There is also a toilet for the women.

You’ll get to chase a huge number of different species, some of them being Speckled Trout, red drum,  Black Seabass, Cobia, Flounder, King Mackerel, and Weakfish. You’ll use light tackle to catch by bottom fishing, trolling, jigging, as well as drift fishing. If you wish, you can keep all your catch, and you can bring kids 7 and up on your trip.

The captain covers you for all the fishing gear, licenses, as well as cleaning and filleting your catch. This means you should only bring the food and drinks of your choice before you depart.

Come have a great day on the waters of Murrells Inlet, Captain Jeff and Reel Assault Fishing Charters are waiting for you!
