Why knot fish with Captain James Quesinberry on some of the best inshore and near shore waters in and around Murrells Inlet? Captain James is a kind and professional fisherman who is thoroughly acquainted with all the most effective methods for hooking fish in the local waters.

Come aboard and fish on a spacious 27 ft Sea Fox center console boat that gives a very comfortable ride to four anglers plus the captain. The boat’s high sides and shady T-Top make it a very desirable fishing charter vessel, especially for families with children, and it is fully equipped with electronics for navigation and safety. Powered by twin Mercury engines, the boat can get you to your desired fishing spot very quickly, so you can maximise your time on the water.

When fishing with Why Knot Charters, you can enjoy targeting species such as Redfish, Flounder, Trout and Black Drum, or you can venture offshore into deeper waters in search for King Mackerel, Amberjack, Sea Bass, Snapper, Spadefish and more. The choice is yours, and Captain James will always make sure to put you in the best place for the bite, given the time of year and conditions.

All fishing rods, tackle and bait are included in each charter trip, and Why Knot Charters will also take care of cleaning all keeper fish.
