Palmetto Fishing Charters

If you’re itching for a hook up to test your fishing skills, Palmetto Fishing Charters is the answer! If you’re a complete novice and want to fall in love with angling, the answer is the same. Captain Ryan Isabelle has all the answers and he’s keen on sharing them with you.

Join him for a fishing adventure in the waters of Murrells Inlet on board his 20’ Sea Hunt which can accommodate up to 4 guests. Her center console design allows you to move around freely while chasing the bite, and her T-top provides shade so you can take a break from the South Carolinian sun.

The area around Murrells Inlet is extremely rich in fish species you can go after, thanks to the many bays and inlets that connect to the ocean. The A-listers of inshore fishing are all on the catch list. Redfish, Flounder, Black Drum, and Spotted Seatrout are all waiting for the right angler to give them a fight. A bit further away from the marshes and bays, you can hook up Sharks, Cobia, Bluefish, Spadefish, and maybe a Mackerel or two, depending on the season and local conditions.

You’ll be provided with all the equipment you may need with Palmetto Fishing Charters, as well as Capt. Ryan’s expert advice. He’ll even clean and fillet your catch on your way back to the dock. Just make sure to avoid bringing spray sunscreen (lotion sunscreen is fine), glass, and bananas on board.

Taxes and fees involved with the credit card processing are not included in the price.

Book a trip with Capt. Ryan today to get on the hottest bite off the coast of South Carolina!
