Reel Assault Fishing Charters

Spend a day fishing in Murrells Inlet and enjoy the water with Capt. Jeff Maples on the Reel Assault. Capt. Jeff has been a guide for 11 years and knows where the fish hide. You will embark on the inshore and nearshore waters and have fun chasing plenty of interesting species 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, surprisingly spacious and smooth, and dry boat that can easily accommodate 4 guests and 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 live wells. 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 9 and up on your trip.

The captain covers you for all the fishing gear, and licenses, as well as cleaning and filleting your catch. All you should bring is the food and drinks of your choice before you depart. Parking is free at the slip and there are plenty of restaurants to have lunch or dinner at after your trip.

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

Any medical conditions that make the trip unsafe for you need to be brought to the captain’s attention.
