Y-Knot Fishing Charters offers family-friendly fishing charters on the waters of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina. Using many years of fishing experience to help you land you trophy fish, Captains Mike and Rick will take you on a fishing experience that you’ve always wished for!

Operating one of the safest boats on the water - a 30’ Boston Whaler Cuddy cabin, which has been deemed unsinkable, they can take you fishing nearshore or offshore. The boat is equipped with full, up to date Raymarine fishfinder and GPS electronics and safety equipment, and a clean and private head (toilet).

The boat features a set of outriggers and downriggers which aid the trolling, a livewell that holds the bait, an icebox for the catch, and most importantly, a first mate who works hard to reel your fish in.

Using all these great features, you will have the chance to target a wide variety of fish. Depending on the season and how far out you travel, you can catch huge Barracuda, Amberjack, Cobia, King Mackerel, Grouper, Black Seabass, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and even Tuna in the Gulf Stream.

Y-Knot Fishing Charters provides all nice fishing gear, and the heavy duty Penn International rods and reels for the Gulfstream trips. They also have live and artificial bait, fishing licenses for everyone onboard, and bottled water. They can also clean and fillet your catch at the end of the trip, so you even get to take your tasty catch home!
