Myrtle Beach Fishing Charters

When fishing with Myrtle Beach Fishing Charters, you’re bound to have time to remember. Come explore the gorgeous waters of South Carolina and discover the abundance of their marine life. Captain Matthew Long will meet you in Myrtle Beach and take you on an offshore adventure in search of many different species. Come aboard to experience the beauties of fishing in a rich and beautiful environment and create memories of a lifetime!

Your boat for the day is a 26’ Sea Fox center console that can sit up to 5 anglers. Thanks to its twin 150 HP Mercury engines, you’ll reach the fishing spots in no time. Along with comprehensive navigation electronics, the boat is equipped with a wireless trolling motor and a livewell. It also features a portable toilet, a multimedia system, as well as an ice-box.

The wide variety of species you can chase on your trip include Mahi Mahi, Blackfin Tuna, Snapper, Gray Triggerfish, Wahoo, Grouper, Amberjack, Cobia, and more. Using heavy tackle, you’ll attract fish by bottom fishing, deep sea fishing, trolling, spinning, jigging, and popping. Feel free to keep the fish you catch as well as bring kids on your trip.
When you arrive, all the fishing gear and bait will be waiting for you.

Captain Matthew also covers you for catch cleaning and licenses, so you should only bring some food and drinks.

Enjoy your day on the lovely waters of South Carolina and have good luck fishing!
