Sea J’s Fishing Charters invites you for a go big or go home fishing adventure in the Carolinas! You’ll meet Captain Justin Laplante at the Cherry Grove Marina located in Cherry Grove, North Myrtle Beach and have a thrilling time fishing the area’s inshore, offshore, reefs, or rivers.

Using light and heavy tackle, you can attract them by bottom fishing, deep sea fishing, trolling, jigging, and drift fishing. You’re free to keep your catch as well as to bring kids aboard.

Captain Justin covers you for all the rods, reels, tackle, lures, and fishing licenses, so just bring the food and drinks of your choice.
