Reel Salty Fishing Charters

Experience some of the best fishing that South Carolina has to offer with Reel Salty Fishing Charters! This charter service is based in the Myrtle Beach/Murrells Inlet area and offers trips year-round. Whether you’re hoping to explore inshore reefs or deep-sea spots, you’re looking at a day full of excitement.

It all starts on a 24’ Key West boat that accommodates up to 5 guests. This center console is powered by twin 150 HP Suzuki engines and reaches maximum speeds of 40 knots. This way, you know you’ll reach your fishing spots fast and have more time to fish. The boat features trolling gear, navigational electronics, a live bait tank, and a porta-potty.

With a variety of available trips, you can choose what fishing grounds you want to visit and what species you prefer to target. Some of your possible catches include Kingfish, Red Snapper, Trout, Flounder, Cobia, Black Drum, Spanish Mackerel, and many more.

The captain takes care of your parking spot at the marina and covers all fishing equipment and licenses you need. He’ll also clean and bag your catch, so you can count the freshest fish fillets as soon as the trip is over. Just pack some snacks, drinks, and sun protection for your day out.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or an experienced angler. Reel Salty Fishing Charters will do their best to put you on fish and help you learn something new. Pick a trip and see you at the dock!

Children under the age of 5 are not allowed on the boat due to safety issues.
